Data management in laboratories
The trend in laboratories of large companies worldwide is towards more and more data, a fact that is not surprising. The most diverse measurement methods in the laboratory produce enormous amounts of data. In the best case scenario, this data must be processed immediately and stored in data management systems such as LIMS laboratory software. This makes the results of a market study by Strategic Directions International from Los Angeles, USA, all the more surprising: the study found that around 70% of companies that have a LIMS still enter their data manually into the LIMS.
Yet a fully integrated LIMS software can solve many challenges in the laboratory and create an important competitive advantage over competitors.
The challenges in the laboratory are diverse
Efficient and high-quality production requires a reliable basis for decision-making. Laboratory data play a very important role in this. They show whether the product complies with the target values or deviates and thus does not meet the standards in terms of quality. To ensure that as few of these substandard products as possible are produced and that high-quality products are produced again as quickly as possible, production staff depend on fast data transfer. Companies are also dependent on the data they produce being available to all those who need it to do their jobs. This requires ensuring that data is stored centrally and securely, regardless of what devices and or software it comes from. All data must be put into a format that allows other software products to reuse it, because different areas of a company may well need different data or only parts of data sets.
LIMS software as a solution for data management in the laboratory
The solution to these data management challenges in the laboratory is a Laboratory Information Management System, for instance [FP]-LIMS from Fink & Partner.
As part of your quality management, the [FP]-LIMS software enables you to monitor your data in real time and in an automated way. In the event of deviations exceeding predefined tolerances, the LIMS alerts you, enabling you to rectify quality losses and prevent product losses in the shortest possible time. Your company saves costs by avoiding unnecessary work steps and reducing paper work and the use of other materials. It increases the consistency in the quality of your products, which leads to more sales in the medium and long term. Replace complicated stand-alone solutions such as Excel or Access and easily find all the information you need in LIMS – centrally and securely. Your data is always up to date and resilient through the LIMS, because all data ends up in the database by linking the LIMS software with all laboratory instruments and other systems. [FP] LIMS also ensures consistent reporting, while being user-friendly and intuitive at all times. The LIMS software solution always adapts to your individual requirements, fields and functions can always be individualized.
