Tracks the process queues and quality of samples through the production pipeline would be very useful to large and medium scale sequencing laboratories. Kaleidaseq also provides a complete, concise, and easily accessible summary of the data flow in a large-scale sequencing setup. Its benefit has been to allow the production coordinators to determine the process queues sorted by project and team, and to monitor the quality in a simple and timely manner. Data are available online as soon as they are entered. The quality monitoring tools that it provides have proved extremely useful to decision makers in resolving slumps in quality and maintaining a stable daily performance level. Kaleidaseq has proved to be a valuable tool in our effort to deliver high-quality genomic sequence at a lower price.
