What is a LIMS?

A Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) allows you to effectively manage the flow of samples and associated data to improve lab efficiency. A LIMS helps standardize workflows, tests and procedures while providing accurate controls of the process. Instruments may be integrated into the LIMS to automate the collection of test data, ensuring they are properly calibrated and operated by trained staff only.

The audit and revision control functions in a LIMS are key reasons why people use a LIMS and ‘go paperless’. Unlike a spreadsheet changes to results are logged, as well as any changes to the test procedure, instruments and reagents used and so on.

A LIMS manages lab data, including samples, tests, lab users, instruments, standards, invoicing, SPO, documentation, and workflow automation. A LIMS creates management reports and certificates of analysis. It  provides a solid framework to capture GLP and drive best practice.
