Genetics Information Systems Suite


SoftPathDx, SCC's diagnostic pathology support system, provides reliable data capture as well as a highly customizable and client-configurable reporting and workflow structure. A diverse imaging and reporting system allows a personalized setup. Seamless integration with SCC's Genetics Information Systems Suite applications provides easy reflex ordering of tests in the sister applications, such as reflex HPV tests to SoftMolecular® or chromosome analysis in SoftCytogenetics®, with final reporting in the Pathology Report.

SoftPathDx also enables users to share specimens between other labs such as biochemistry, flow cytometry, cytogenetics, and molecular. This allows for integrated resulting and the ability to track specimens throughout multiple labs. SoftPathDx also enables users to optimize workflow by focusing on site-specific protocols and rules to assist the technologists and pathologists in decreasing turnaround times and managing patient data.

SoftMedia enables clinical personnel to attach stored documents or images to specific orders and other patient records, which eliminates the need for bulky paper files while providing a single source for all related patient information. The imaging system can also be used for consult samples (blocks or slides) to document materials received
  • Thorough audit trail capture of every user
  • Provides for easy case assignment allowing managers to match individual and group expertise, thus providing for maximum productivity resulting in greater accomplishment with fewer FTEs. This feature also easily allows team members to coordinate immunogenetics clinical and research testing


SCC's SoftMolecular information management system enables pathologists, geneticists, and forensic scientists to manage data and analysis stemming from current molecular testing methods in order to generate accurate interpretations and meaningful reports. This robust, user-friendly, and intuitive workflow solution for the diagnostic genetics laboratory enables users to streamline workflows, interface with automated instrumentation, manage patient and family cases, track sample storage, and control inventory. SCC's Genetics Information Systems Suite™ products allow communication with other laboratories, whether they are separate technology-based departments or multiple sites

SoftMolecular empowers users in all aspects of the genetic testing process - including direction of workflows through testing protocols, data transfer with automated equipment, management of samples, and tracking of inventory levels. SoftMolecular's intuitive workflow functionality enables users to track cases through DNA/RNA determination, amplification, detection, analysis, and interpretation. The robust reporting functionality found in the SoftMolecular module gives users an accurate, user-friendly data analysis and results reporting capability that facilitates comprehension of results from complex testing. Features, such as enterprise-wide reporting, enable users to track completion of tests including remaining/pending tasks, while daily manager worklist queues assist managers in keeping their technologists informed about daily fluctuations of workload

SoftMolecular offers seamless integration and interfacing with sequencing and fragment analysis instruments. These interfaces replace manual data transfer reducing resource investment and the inherent error rate associated with manual processes. This results in not only in greater efficiency and accuracy but also provides efficient data management and minimal loss due to human error.

  • Image attachments for each sample or per worksheet
  • Patient information and testing data can be easily accessed and referenced in a paperless environment. Therefore, patient files or logs are not required, which results in laboratory space and/or record storage expense savings
  • Ability to rerun an entire batch or auto-assign a specific sample to the next pending batch with a single click of the mouse
  • Enables users to quickly and easily manage repeat testing so these repeat tests avoid the delays or mismanagement that can occur with manual process management approaches. This ensures the most optimal turnaround time, thus enhancing client satisfaction.
  • Ability to link controls to a sample or batch
  • Control documentation will be accurate, can be accessible per patient or batch, and will remain electronically linked for historical reference or investigation. Users no longer need to sort through manual logs or files in order to identify or trend control data for quality control troubleshooting.
  • Auto-calculation of master mixes with auto-deduction of volume from inventory
  • Reduction of manual calculations and inventory control leading to error-free calculations and effective inventory management
  • Rules-driven alerts or notifications based on client, patient demographic, test, or result parameters
  • Reduce paper or phone communications and ensure timely and accurate delivery of special instructions or critical information.
  • Auto reflex and/or auto rerun testing across technologies based on client-defined rules
  • Eliminates manual error inherent in manual reflex/rerun ordering and reduces turnaround time of tests.


SCC's diagnostic genetics laboratory information management system, SoftCytogenetics, allows processing of cases using workflow scenarios as determined by the laboratory's standard operating procedures (SOPs), including culture setup through harvesting, slide processing, analysis, and reporting. SoftCytogenetics offers a complete solution for cytogenetics laboratories, providing user-definable protocols, real-time sample tracking throughout processing, and auto-generation of reports based on user-defined rules and canned messages. Culture Tracking functionality supports culture processing for any testing in the cytogenetics laboratory as well as culture preparation for send out testing.
