  • System Integration Case Study: LIMS Implementation and Integration

    What is a LIMS System?
    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.
    Historically the term “LIMS” has tended to refer to informatics systems targeted for environmental, research, or commercial analysis such as pharmaceutical or petrochemical work. “LIS” has tended to refer to laboratory informatics systems in the forensics and clinical markets, which often required special case management tools.
