Beck’s Hybrids uses BaseSpace Clarity LIMS to help expands its pipeline and relies on help from GenoLogics domain experts
How do you quickly implement a LIMS, deal with a discontinued reagent kit, and expand the sample pipeline threefold in a short period of time? It’s all in a day’s work for lab manager, Jenni Taller, and her team at Beck’s Superior Hybrids.
Beck’s Hybrids is the largest family-owned, retail seed company in the United States, serving farmers in the Midwest and neighboring regions. When Taller joined Beck’s, she quickly identified the need for a laboratory information management system (LIMS) to keep pace with the increasing sample volume. She chose BaseSpace Clarity LIMS, but there was a catch: it had to be up and running quickly to support the upcoming growing season. To help with the LIMS implementation, the discontinued reagent kit, and the sample volume increase, Taller has relied on the smart design of BaseSpace Clarity LIMS and the experts who support it.
GenoLogics is dedicated to building a LIMS for organizations to use to advance their science and business. We work closely with instrument providers, scientific leaders, and customers to build a LIMS that is easy to implement and use. MS- and PhD-trained scientific staff with hands-on experience in wet lab and bioinformatics help design the system and they also help support it if complexities arise. GenoLogics ensures that from sales to system implementation to routine support calls, we have staff members that uniquely understand your challenges.
Jenni Taller is the lab manager at Beck’s Hybrids. She and her team of two enable Beck’s to help farmers increase quality and yield of crops and ultimately control some of the unknowns associated with farming. They do this by working with breeders to incorporate desired traits through use of dihaploid technology and genome wide selection.
