Proprietary Tech Software SystemWill Empower Testing for the University of South Carolina and Surrounding Communities
GoMeyra, an innovative new software company dedicated to providing revolutionary tech solutions for medical laboratories, announces that the University of South Carolina (UofSC) will be using GoMeyra LIMS for rapid COVID-19 test processing. The proprietary system, which initiated testing January 2021, will help to monitor, as well as provide testing protocols for surrounding communities and organizations within the Columbia metropolitan area.
oMeyra LIMS is a comprehensive Lab Information Management System for labs and medical practices that is now helping thousands of Americans return to jobs, school and normal activities. With a re-imagined system that supports laboratory and business operations with greater accessibility, functionality and interconnectivity, testing capacities are exponentially increased, which allows for more same-day patient results within hours.
“The University of South Carolina, like all other universities, wants to make sure our students and faculty are safe on campus this semester and will be requiring the entire campus community to be tested for COVID-19 every month. That means testing an estimated 25% of the campus population per week, at an average of two thousand tests processed daily, which will be a herculean endeavor,” said Stephen Cutler, Ph.D., Dean of the College of Pharmacy at UofSC. “To handle this, we have acquired a laboratory information management system that will allow us to streamline our CLIA laboratory’s operations.”
To help facilitate testing, the university’s College of Pharmacy has set up two main testing locations: one for students and one for faculty and staff. These locations will conduct testing 5-7 days a week based on need and during published hours to be announced through the UofSC Central Communications website (www.sc.edu) and circulated via email. COVID-19 testing is provided by the College of Pharmacy, Student Health Services and the School of Medicine, who will be utilizing several different types of testing methods.
The GoMeyra SCAN app is synced to a customized portal, where administrators can scan an employee or student’s QR code or badge to find test results, which will determine if a faculty member or student can return to work or school safely during the pandemic. For labs, GoMeyra COLLECT is anappthat allowstechnicians to scan samples, track and remotely process tests, monitor operations and review data from anywhere.
GoMeyra LIMS empowers processing and monitoring for PCR, rapid antigen and antibody testing, as well as verification for individual vaccine administration. Developed during the COVID-19 lockdown to help with the testing crisis, the innovative software platform has been adopted by labs, providers and contractors to service enterprise-level companies, universities, casinos, live entertainment productions, professional sports, live entertainment, film and television productions throughout the country.
“GoMeyra LIMS is designed with simplicity, efficiency and adaptability in mind, which has proven to be a real benefit for a number of corporations, universities and large-scale organizations. Administrators can now access the health and safety of its workforce or students and faculty through a customized portal, providing true, up-to-the-minute monitoring, which lessens the time needed to react to outbreaks that may arise,” said Jaswant S. Tony, founder and Chief Executive Officer for GoMeyra.
This marks the second university using GoMeyra LIMS. The University of Central Florida, through COVID Testing LLC based in Orlando, is also taking advantage of the software solution to get students back to school. Many other labs and medical practices who are benefiting from the innovative software technology include Atlas Genomics, a lab operating in Seattle, WA; Austin, TX; Atlanta, GA; and Boston, MA; Genus3 a lab in Houston, TX; BalboaDx, a lab in Southern California; and Athlete Advantage Medical, a medical practice handling medical testing nationwide for athletes and production staff of televised combat fighting events (MMA and boxing), including UFC, Top Rank, Golden Boy, Bellator, etc., as well as competition events such as Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and the World’s Strongest Man.
