Opal 4.25 will be live 12 December 2016! In this release, we have delivered significant enhancements to ACMG Classification with automatically answered ACMG criteria and workflow improvements to enable faster turnaround time and ensure quality. We have also reorganized filters into more intuitive subgroups.
Opal Clinical provides an end-to-end solution for clinical NGS testing, combining Omicia’s industry-leading Opal annotation platform with structured workflows, integrated ACMG-guided classification, full support for clinical report generation and LIS integration -- all within a secure, HIPAA-compliant environment.

Clinical Reports - Batch Report Approval
To speed the report approval process and turnaround time, Lab Directors can now approve multiple clinical reports at once. Multiple reports can be selected on the Clinical Reports queue page, and the new Manage Reports button allows both report approval for users with lab director responsibilities, and assigning multiple reports to workspace users.
Filter and Filtering Protocol Enhancements
In the previous release, we organized the variant filter criteria into more intuitive subgroupings. In Opal 4.25, we have replaced the slider bars with numerical input for the allele frequency, impact score and quality score filter criteria. Users can now specify if they want to look for variants that match to any filter (“or” logic), or look for variants that match to all filters (“and” logic) within these subgroups.
We have also upgraded Filtering Protocols so any filter criteria can be included in a Filtering Protocol.
Regions of Homozygosity Analysis
Analyzing regions of homozygosity (ROH) can be important in diagnostic odyssey cases, especially with consanguinous parents or in cases of uniparental disomy. Opal’s ROH viewer has been enhanced so smaller ROH can be identified and analyzed, and family member ROH can be visualized. In addition, there is a new Location filter for variants in ROH in Select Variants and Interpret Variants.
Viewing all Variants in Approved Solo & Family Reports
In this release, we have enhanced Solo and Family reports so the Select Variants page is now viewable as read only. Previously only the Interpret Variants page was accessible in approved report. This will allow all variants can be viewed in approved reports.
