At its core cnTrack provides a secure and scalable way to analyze, store, retrieve and manage aCGH and SNP array data and soon will become available for Next Generation Seqiencing (NGS) users as well. It was designed to facilitate and monitor distributed data interpretation process involving multiple workstations in a large diagnostic or research laboratory. Using cnTrack laboratory team can standardize and control their work across all major aCGH and SNP array platforms including Affymetrix, Agilent, Illumina, PerkinElmer, Roche-Nimblegen, BlueGnome, OGT and custom arrays. Seamless integration of our analytical and visualization software oneClickCGH and CGH Fusion into cnTrack ensures precise and reliable DNA copy number and LOH analysis in a high-throughput environment.

Features

Streamlined data interpretation and reporting workflow

cnTrack is designed to facilitate DNA Copy Number reporting/interpretation workflow and easily adapts to any existing array-based tissue testing pipeline a research or diagnostic laboratory might have. Different roles and access restrictions are easy to set up for different categories of cnTrack users in order to follow laboratory's policies. cnTrack easily connects to any existing laboratory databases (Shire, OMNILAB, STARLIMS etc) to retrieve sample information or can serve as a point of sample annotation entry itself. The system also provides tools to store, manage and retrieve information about structural variants and genes. At the end of cnTrack's pipeline you will find a polished reporting module designed for use in a clinical setting and capable of producing a variety of highly customizable reports.

Centralized data storage with compatibility across all platforms

We built cnTrack to be truly platform agnostic: it accepts array data generated by all major commercial array platforms and can be used on any machine that has an Internet browser. Users can store and analyze data produced by PerkinElmer, Agilent, Affymetrix, Roche-Nimblegen, Illumina, BlueGnome or OGT arrays and we are working on making NGS data import available in cnTrack for ultimate compatibility across technologies. cnTrack is also agnostic with respect to database system (Oracle, SQL Server etc) used on its backend for better integration with existing institution infrastructure. Integration of cnTrack with our powerful analytics software CGH Fusion makes batch import of pre-processed raw data available for high-throughput users.

Full spectrum of data analytics

Being integrated with our powerful DNA Copy Number analytics software oneClickCGH and CGH Fusion, cnTrack delivers full power of Copy Number and LOH analysis to every licensed PC. Literally, data from dozens to hundreds of samples can be analyzed for chromosomal changes within minutes. Then automatically generated reports can be either signed off on or manually edited if needed. At the same time built-in cross sample and even cross project query capability provides means for more in-depth analysis and comparison with historical data. Research users can also take advantage of sample attributes to build clinically meaningful cohorts of samples utilizing wealth of historical data, which then can be analyzed for common chromosomal anomalies.

Laboratory pipeline monitoring

The centerpiece of cnTrack web-based interface is a snapshot of laboratory's reporting pipeline. It can be customized for every user role to make distributed data analysis and interpretation more efficient. This snapshot ensures that all lab members see their immediate tasks and know of any urgent cases. A laboratory manager can use the pipeline snapshot to timely detect and manage possible bottlenecks in the workflow. "Physician Portal" page, which can be used to deliver prepared case reports inside or outside the lab, alerts its users of any new test results.

Ease of lab-wide distribution and access

Based on a web-based technology cnTrack does not have any significant performance requirements with respect to user hardware. Cross-laboratory installation effort is also very minimal as most of system’s data management capabilities are delivered via Internet browser. Such light-client approach do data management aspect of cnTrack provides its users with a wide spectrum of infrastructural options. All elements of cnTrack can be installed on a secure server inside institution’s firewall. Alternatively, to avoid server maintenance costs, our clients can choose to keep cnTrack’s database core on a secure cloud managed by infoQuant.
