Case Study / Agendia
As a driving force in the personalized medicine revolution, Agendia improves the quality of life for cancer patients through the discovery, development and commercialization of molecular diagnostics. In order to automate workflow and improve process efficiency, Agendia wanted to install an anatomical pathology laboratory information system (LIS) solution in both their Irvine, CA based commercial lab and in their R&D lab in the Netherlands.
“ Technology in the growing personalized medicine industry is key and we are happy to be on the forefront. ”

Technossus installed and customized Agendia’s existing LIS system, performing multiple workflow and reporting customizations. Customization to the LIS was made to reflect new lines of business: FFPE (formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded), ColoPrint, hybridization workflow and patient reporting.
The implementation of batch processing and instrument integration led to decreased turnaround time and error rates. Agendia gained the ability to import and integrate historical data from their R&D lab. The new lab system now accepts FFPE tissues which greatly increases their market share and revenue potential.
