Today’s laboratories are streamlined environments where sample and data processing are organized in accordance with strict approved standard operating procedures. Laboratory Information Management System or LIMS software is the life blood of any laboratory operation, and recent advances have extended their reach to a wider group of users, regardless of any previous experience or training.
By its very nature, LIMS is designed to handle information throughout the laboratory, so it must be clear and straightforward to use, from correct data entry in sample reception to analyzing and reporting results. With data handling comes security, therefore password controlled zones are also necessary to ensure that only authorized personnel can gain access to sensitive functionality and information. The knock on effect is better resource allocation in the laboratory, and greater customer assurance over data management and integrity.
