Sunquest Mitogen™ Molecular LIMS

Laboratory information management system (LIMS) for managing your molecular diagnostics and genetic testing lab

A flexible molecular LIMS for complex, precise lab processes

Sunquest Mitogen™ delivers the most comprehensive and flexible molecular and genetic laboratory information system (LIS) and laboratory information management system (LIMS) software to support the science and business of personalized medicine. The Sunquest Mitogen LIMS manages all of your wet lab operations – including sample management and tracking, and inventory, reagent and instrument management – for all molecular workflows.

Reconfigurable, process-based LIS / LIMS solution

The Sunquest Mitogen LIMS is built using modern web standards paired with a scalable cloud-deployed architecture that is designed to adapt to rapid change — in response to scientific, regulatory or reimbursement dynamics. New lab workflows can be built out quickly.

Rich sample tracking and auditing

In molecular diagnostics, multiple samples and types (e.g., blood, FFPE, saliva) can be collected from a single patient and need to be tracked. And those samples can move from one container type to another multiple times – such as plates, wells, and vials.  Our molecular LIMS records every step and transfer with precise sample tracking and process detail for comprehensive audit trails 

Complex data management for molecular diagnostics

We understand that molecular diagnostics and genetic testing involves complex data management with requirements that conventional laboratory information systems simply aren’t built to handle.

Modular, scalable process management platform

Conventional LIS / LIMS typically come in two formats: either as off-the-shelf systems that are ready to go but don’t fit your processes, or as custom systems that take so long to build that a process has changed by the time they are complete.

Our modular, scalable process management platform rapidly configures to your lab’s exact needs and supports a wide range of molecular testing requirements, from molecular pathology departments of major health systems to entrepreneurial molecular diagnostic companies.

Molecular diagnostics applications include the following and more: molecular genetics, biochemical genetics, companion diagnostics, pharmacogenetics, toxicology and virology.

Keep your successful molecular diagnostics laboratory processes and workflows and grow over time. The Sunquest Mitogen LIMS adapts to fit current and future processes.

Comprehensive and configurable laboratory information management

A laboratory information system (LIS / LIMS) for all aspects of your molecular and genetic diagnostic workflow and laboratory management needs, from accessioning to final report:

Sample tracking & auditing

  • Manage complex molecular processes and workflows with sample lineage-based tracking.
  • View sample path by process step, user or timeframe.
  • Easily comply with CAP or CLIA audit requirements in real-time.

Lab operations management dashboards

  • Transform volumes of laboratory data into actionable information.
  • Monitor lab performance in real time, from turnaround times to customer trends.
  • Drill down through interactive charts and graphs to individual customers, payers, samples and more.
  • Instantly access visualizations for use in presentations and reports.

Lab administration

  • Maintain all information in one place, not scattered in multiple notebooks and instrument records.


  • A barcode on every sample becomes its entry point into the system.
  • Sample relationships are maintained.

Ready-made and custom workflows

  • Gel Electrophoresis
  • Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
  • Cytogenetics
         - Fluorescence in Situ Hybridization (FISH)

Sample archiving

  • Query to find the location of an archived sample, such as in specific box on a specific shelf in a specific freezer, or a nested position in any other storage system

Quality control

  • Efficiently manage reagents, instruments, inventory, documents, personnel and sample storage.
  • Alert users of quality control concerns, e.g., soon-to-expire reagents, instrument recalibration.


  • Automate re-ordering with pre-determined thresholds.
  • View consumables and costs across projects and time.
