Matrix Configuration Tools

Visual configuration tools, within a standard core product, ensure our information management systems match your needs, at a fraction of the cost of competitor solutions.

Configuring Workflows Not Data

First to clarify what configuration is not. Some LIMS define setting up the sample test data, including the results to be recorded, limits and calculations to be performed as configuration but this is not configuration. Matrix includes built-in maintenance screens to setup and maintain this and other key data, including storage locations, instruments and equipment in use, and staff training and competencies. This is routine admin not configuration.

Configuration Not Customization

Matrix screens are configured using a graphical editor not via software code. Software/scripting languages (such as basic, java and c++) used by some LIMS are defined as custom development. They require in-depth validation when considering GAMP (Good Automated Manufacturing Practice) guidelines as they are category 5. The graphical editor in Matrix configures the system using pre-designed standard functions that cannot be altered by users, making them category 4, a lower validation risk. Our graphical low-code development approach is unique in the LIMS industry and provides significant advantages and cost-benefits.

Matrix Configuration Tools

The genuine low-code configuration capabilities built into the Matrix Configuration Tools provide all the flexibility needed to configure any LIMS solution, without the need for custom coding. Any screen in the workflow can be changed to fit the processes and terminology of any laboratory. Users may make changes themselves, and step any screen back to an earlier version, if desired. Users find Matrix easy to use because every screen can be optimized to the exact needs of every laboratory.
