The common thread across these case studies, and we can cite many others, is that without exception they all use exactly the same LIMS software. Customer solutions invariably come from starter systems which are pre-configured to the general needs of an industry area. These include a Regulated Manufacturing starter system that covers Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices, and a QC centric starter system that covers Contract Labs and non-batch centric flows. Other specific starter systems include Veterinary, Water, Clinical Research and Covid LIMS testing, often allowing many labs to take out of the box solutions with very little configuration. Configuration of these systems however does not change one line of the LIMS software code. It is all accomplished using the Matrix Configuration Tools that form the Matrix LCDP. This is a “What You See Is What You Get” (WYSIWYG) graphical editor that can be used by Autoscribe or suitably trained users to easily adapt screens to suit the user’s exact needs. As these needs change, as they invariably will, the same tools are used to update the configuration, no matter what version of the underlying software is currently running.
This approach has several advantages. Since all LIMS software is common to all systems, and separate from the configuration, it can be easily updated as new releases become available. This provides a continuous upgrade path for all users allowing them to take advantage of the latest security fixes and technology upgrades without changing their configuration. Support for systems that customers have configured themselves is provided by Autoscribe as part of a standard support contract; this is only possible because the underlying code can never be altered by the user. Finally, the LIMS can be easily adapted to suit a laboratory’s changing needs over time, keeping it in line with business and laboratory changes and innovations.
As we so often hear from our real-life customers, flexibility, ease of use, and maintainability, set Matrix Gemini LIMS apart from all other LIMS in the marketplace today. The fact that any LIMS requirement can be met by the same Matrix Gemini LIMS software, whether for pharmaceutical, medical devices, food, water, veterinary or any other laboratory type, is what sets Autoscribe Informatics solutions apart. This is particularly true for companies with multiple types of laboratories that cover specific and diverse types of testing. With Matrix Gemini LIMS one LIMS can truly cover all your needs.
