Benefits of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS)

Digitize daily laboratory workflows to reduce repetitive manual tasks and gain better oversight of research, development, analytical, and quality assurance/quality control processes.

Reduce Errors & Rework

Provide standardized workflows and protocols for lab processes to ensure that samples are processed consistently, and that data is collected accurately.

Improve Accuracy & Productivity

Automate manual tasks such as sample tracking, data entry, and report generation. Reduce the likelihood of human error and free up time for lab staff to focus on more critical tasks.

Reduce IT Costs

Centralize lab data to reduce the need for multiple software applications and manual data entry. This can help streamline IT operations, reduce support costs, and improve data accessibility and sharing across the organization.

Ensure Data Integrity

Prevent data loss, tampering, or unauthorized access, and ensures that laboratory data is reliable and accurate by using a secure and centralized database for storing lab data.

How Can Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) Improve Laboratory Efficiency?

Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) are software solutions used to store, manage, and analyze laboratory data. The core functionality of a LIMS includes sample tracking and organization, electronic notebooking for research data, user and administrator task management, automated reports, and compatibility with other systems. It can also be used to ensure compliance with regulations related to clinical operations or research activity.
Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs)

ELNs are typically used to document and track all research activity. These systems provide an organized system for recording experiments, including collecting, storing, and organizing data from experiments. This functionality is a crucial part of your LIMS, which is focused on tracking samples and inventory as they move through complex testing processes. LIMS can be used to automate workflows and generate reports quickly while providing robust data integration capabilities.

Benefits of ELNs include:

  • Document invention and innovation for patent filings, defense, and interferences
  • Search for and share information within and between department
  • Improve data quality and ensure data integrity and traceability
  • Reduce the time spent looking for data by up to 50%
  • Eliminate repeat experiments and lower costs by up to 25%
  • Remove repetitive manual tasks and human errors to improve productivity by up to 25%
Laboratory Task Management

Organize, order, allocate, and carry out lab procedures with ease. Build and manage activities linked to crucial laboratory workflows for mechanical and analytical tests, chemical synthesis processes, biological testing, protein purification procedures, polymerization, formulations optimization, and more using flexible activity templates. Define business procedures such as approvals, notifications, and routing, all according to your specific organizational requirements.

Benefits of Laboratory Task Management include:

  • Enhanced scientific cooperation using common procedures and task delegation
  • Improve lab efficiency by effectively distributing tasks and allocating resources
  • Prevent inconsistent experiment recording and assignment across various labs
  • Ease the transition from developing processes and methods to putting them into use
  • Enhance the identification, tracking, and labelling of samples used in experimental activities
Laboratory Procedure Management & Authoring

Streamline and standardize laboratory procedure authoring and deployment with a user-friendly web-based system that enables you to create step-by-step procedures and techniques based on industry standards.

Benefits of Lab Procedure Management include:

  • Simplify creation of methods from libraries of procedures and activities
  • Ensure consistency from product development through to manufacturing with each task based on the ANSI/ISA-88 standard
  • Improve communication between procedure management and material management
  • Enable scientists to define specific types of available equipment and materials to be used in authored procedures and formulae
Materials Management

Centralize materials inventory management to make inventory monitoring, purchasing, and disposal simpler while minimizing waste from raw materials by up to 30%. Make quicker decisions by tracking progress through discovery and development. Guarantee consistency, accessibility, and GxP compliance while making data easy to search and share.

Benefits of Materials Management include:

  • Boost productivity by streamlining workflows, making it simpler to produce reports more quickly
  • Reduce your time spent looking for inventory by up to 75%
  • Increase regulatory compliance with standardized inventory management and GxP compliant operations
  • Protect your IP by maintaining a comprehensive, easily searchable registration database
  • Minimize your IT overhead as web-based applications require less IT resources and maintenance
