What is a LIMS System?continue reading
A laboratory information management system (LIMS), is a software-based solution with features that support a modern laboratory’s operations. Key features include sample management, stability studies, workflow management, sample tracking, and data quality support. The features and uses of a LIMS have evolved over the years from simple sample tracking to an enterprise resource planning tool that manages multiple aspects of laboratory informatics.
