LIMS selection criteria: Department requirements at a glance
A LIMS, or Laboratory Information Management System, is a software application designed to support the management of laboratory data. LIMS provide a centralized location to store and access data and offer features such as data entry, validation, workflow management, and reporting. LIMS are used in a variety of industries, including automotive manufacturing, metal fabrication, mining and surface mining, environmental testing, and public utilities and construction.
LIMS offer many advantages over traditional paper-based systems or spreadsheet-based solutions. LIMS can improve data quality by providing built-in rules for data entry and validation. They can also increase efficiency by automating tasks such as sample tracking and results reporting. In addition, LIMS provide greater flexibility in terms of organization and access to data.
