Contract Laboratory DM Scientific used Matrix Express, the 'out of the box' version of Matrix Gemini LIMS, to go paperless and transform its management systems.

DM Scientific, a rapidly growing contract analysis laboratory for the Animal Feed Industry, has replaced its largely manual sample tracking and reporting system based on a spreadsheet with the Matrix Express ‘out of the box’ LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) from Autoscribe. With previous experience of using Matrix Express ensuring an even faster than normal implementation the company has transformed its data management processes in the laboratory, saving both time and money.


  • To automate and replace an Excel/paper based system
  • With the number of samples rising dramatically each year the process needed to be more effective




  • Matrix Express brings all the benefits of a low cost entry-level LIMS, featuring a reporting system with 8 standard reports including a certificate of analysis
  • The system is easy to use, facilitating use by all of the analysts

“Autoscribe listened carefully to our needs during the implementation process. The system has worked without any problems since it first went live.”
