SCC Soft Computer® Set to Exhibit at Children’s Oncology Group Cytogenetics Workshop

(Clearwater, FL) February 12, 2013—SCC Soft Computer (SCC) is set to exhibit at the Children’s Oncology Group (COG) Cytogenetics Workshop taking place February 22nd – 23rd at the St. Louis Airport Renaissance Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri.  The ‘Striving for Excellence’ workshop will focus on the key role cytogenetics plays in the outcome of patients with pediatric leukemia.

SCC will showcase a comprehensive Genetics Information Systems Suite™ that offers a full range of genetics information management tools designed to automate workflow in the diagnostic genetics laboratory.  This integrated laboratory and genetics software enables healthcare providers to personalize patient disease treatments based on individual’s unique history and genetic composition, resulting in faster turnaround times in patient treatment.

SCC’s Genetics Information Systems Suite™ consists of 6 technology modules (SoftCytogenetics, SoftMolecular, SoftFlowCytometry, SoftBiochemistry, SoftPathDx, and SoftHLA) which are fully integrated and share the same database and common functionality.  Each module also has specific functionality to support the unique challenges and needs for testing and reporting in these laboratories.

One of the first to produce production-environment-ready genetics information systems, SCC is committed to providing clients with information management systems that enable them to compete in the highly competitive clinical diagnostics marketplace.

2013 Cytogenetics Workshop hours are Friday, February 22 from 1:00 P.M. – 5:30 P.M. and Saturday, February 23 from 8:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M.
