Seqster has announced the release of Seqster Platform v7.1 on the Microsoft Azure cloud. By incorporating Azure, along with Kubernetes and Istio, Seqster is able to automate the deployment, scaling, and management of its app containers without “DevOps” intervention.
It also provides TLS encryption for data in transit between all resources in the platform along with enhanced logging for observability and policy adherence.
Seqster provides researchers and clinicians a user-friendly experience while accelerating the onboarding of research participants into clinical trials. Patients can now track their health data throughout the study and beyond, offering an integrated approach to outcomes analysis.
The platform is FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliant enabling secure delivery of EHR documents directly to regulated clinical trial management systems and allowing eConsent-based visualization of participants’ data.
New features of Seqster 7.1 on Microsoft Azure include: enhanced security using Azure Key Vault and Istio Service Mesh; high availability cluster with redundancy across availability zones; customizable user interface for white label branding; and single and multi-tenant options.
Moreover, it offers scalable object storage with Azure Blob Storage for EHR documents, Medical Images, and DNA sequence files; Single-Sign-On integration with Oauth2 Authentication; and FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant for Clinical Trial data handling.
