Not everyone might be familiar with the concept of BIMS. BIMS solutions apply the information management principles used within LIMS to more general business data to provide the capability to track and manage business critical information. Autoscribe Informatics’ BIMS includes the Quality Management Suite which features modules for Competency Tracking, Asset Management, Customer Feedback, Audit Planning, Document Management and CAPA (Corrective and Preventative Action Management).
As well as being available as a stand-alone system for purely business applications, these BIMS modules integrate seamlessly into the Matrix Gemini LIMS meaning that a single system can be used to address the issues described above, and many more. Thus, for example, in addition to the traditional LIMS activities, the system can maintain records of technician certifications/training and results of performance checks, thus preventing a user without up-to-date qualifications from recording results from given samples.
