Case Study: Bristol Genetics Lab

The Bristol Genetics Laboratory is based at the new, state-of-the-art laboratories in the Pathology Science building at Bristol Southmead NHS hospital. It delivers routine genetic testing services to the South West region, a population of approximately 5 million, as well as providing specialist, and highly specialised services to the rest of the UK and internationally.

Learn how they have implemented a cloud-based Arkivum solution to facilitate the storing of gene-sequencing data and digital imaging from the 30,000 genetic investigations it conducts annually.

Data security, authenticity and integrity

Maximising the value of data is the lifeblood of life sciences and pharma and it therefore stands to reason that protecting your data is an essential part of data management. All data is AES encrypted on the Arkivum Service before it is archived in our private cloud services… a number of core changes.

All operations that touch your data are conducted within our chain of custody processes that ensure that data integrity is never compromised.

ISO 27001 Certification

Arkivum is certified to the international standard ISO 27001:2013. This is an important part of Arkivum’s business and is central to how we manage and interact with the data that our customers entrust to us.

Our certification to ISO 27001 forms the foundation that enables us to help you be in compliance with a range of standards relevant to life sciences such as ISO 15189, ISO 17018 and 21CFR Part 11.

Flexible, managed cloud-based service

Massively and instantly scalable to meet the explosive data growth coming from NGS, visualisation, imaging and associated technologies in life sciences and pharma.

Based on a gateway appliance model, an installation can be completed in less than a day.

With a range of products and services, you are able to mix-and-match the types of storage solution, and their associated capacities, as your needs change and grow.

Case Study: Oxford Molecular Diagnostic Centre / Oxford NHS Hospitals NHS Trust

With the need for a scalable, easily-procured and cost-effective long-term storage solution, the Oxford Molecular Diagnostics Centre deployed 60TB of Arkivum long-term archive storage.

The cost-effectiveness of the Arkivum solution has meant that OMDC have opted to store all their FASTQ, BAM and VCF files to allow easy reanalysis of the data that is facilitating the creation of an optimal clinical bioinformatics pipeline. This in effect means that the solution is now storing 50% more data volume than originally planned thus reducing the load on local IT infrastructure storage and the costs associated with having these files in the backup window (and making the Arkivum system even more cost-effective).
