Most modern laboratories rely on some form of integrated Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) to improve efficiency and productivity in the lab. LIMS can help in all aspects of laboratory management by facilitating rapid login, calculating turnaround times, maximizing productivity and profitability, and improving QA/QC and regulatory compliance, as well as helping to meet accreditation requirements.


Forensic Labs
Forensic labs must manage ever-growing amounts of case information that comes in from police departments, pathology labs, drug rehabilitation centers, prisons, and even private customers. All case file information, data, test results, validation information, and much more needs to be managed meticulously, a task made easier by an efficient LIMS.

Industry/manufacturing labs
Industrial manufacturing labs require the coordination and management of multiple processes – LIMS software is ideal for this application.

Chemical
LIMS is ideally suited to labs associated with chemical manufacturing, as the system can be used to control the large number of complex processes involved.

Clinical Labs
Clinical labs can involve manipulation of hundreds of samples in numerous processes. LIMS can be invaluable in controlling flow through a clinical lab.

Bioanalysis
Bioanalysis involves efficient assay validation, bioanalysis of samples, instrument interfacing, sample tracking, and reporting of results. These processes can all benefit from an effective LIMS.

Pharmaceutical manufacturing
In the pharmaceutical industry, it is particularly important that manufacturing process and their own working practices adhere to the defined standards. Furthermore, the laboratory must work in such a way that it adds value to the manufacturing process and is not seen as a bottleneck within the manufacturing process.

These demands require an efficient and appropriate LIMS.

Patient care
There are many aspects of patient care information that have to be organized, including patient vital statistics, patient specimens, specimen sources, testing procedures ordered, analytical data, and results. All of this information is highly important and must be kept confidential and safe from corruption.

An appropriate and efficient LIMS is essential to the management of a clinical lab.
