What is a LIMS?

hd free eln software

A modern LIMS, or Laboratory Information Management System, is a user-friendly laboratory informatics platform that helps track and manage workflow automation and data entry. It provides a central repository for all laboratory data and helps automate laboratory processes, including sample tracking, quality control, data integrity and analysis, audit trails, and report generation.

A LIMS optimizes laboratory operations by modeling operating procedures according to your specific needs and regulatory compliance requirements (such as the CFR part). It allows requests to be triggered for each modeled process, including the samples to be processed, their associated metadata, and what processes (i.e., pipelines) they are assigned to. This allows you to manage the processing flow of samples from the initial request through well-defined steps to reduce human error and ensure repeatable results and proper traceability day-to-day.

icon intricate sample management needs

Sample Management

LIMS systems are commonly used for sample management to keep an accurate inventory of each sample, its processing, and other related data, such as storage location, etc. Detailed samples and related metadata can be recorded when the sample is created or arrives in the lab. It can also vary depending on the sample type and its processing pipeline. This typically includes the related project(s), sample identifiers/barcodes, storage information, related assay results data, and workflows or experiments through which it has passed. It also includes information such as how it should be stored and any expiration dates. A laboratory information management system should be able to record and retain all this information to ensure easy traceability of all things related to a sample in its life cycle.

icon built in materials management

Materials Management

Lab processing relies heavily on tracking materials being used, typically reagents. A Lab Management System can enable detailed tracking of inventoried reagents, how much is on hand, lot numbers, expiration dates, and reorder levels. The laboratory information management system will also record everywhere a particular material lot was used (e.g., what processing workflows), and what samples were combined with the reagents.

Do you have questions about LIMS software?

We’d love to answer them.

What separates one LIMS from the next?

While the core functions of laboratory information management systems, such as sample management, materials management, and process management, can at first appear homogenized among the market’s leading alternatives, LIMS are far from created equal when it comes to their configurability, speed of implementation, and reliance on custom code. All three of these elements are interrelated, as a highly configurable solution tends to take a low-code approach, speeding initial implementation and adaptability as scientific requirements evolve.

The other area in which LIMS solutions vary greatly is in their integration with the rest of the lab informatics ecosystem. While many alternatives claim to be platforms, a true platform will offer one unified experience that spans LIMS, ELN, and data management, with one login and one (very short) learning curve for the scientific user.

What types of data are stored in a LIMS system?

LIMS software allows for the storage of sample tracking data such as the source of the sample, expiration date and researcher’s information.

What is the best functionality of a LIMS?

The best functionalities of modern LIMS systems include automation of workflows, efficient storage of large amounts of data, maintaining data quality and lab management standards as well as seamless integration with other instruments and systems.

Who uses LIMS software?

LIMS are used by lab managers, lab technicians, bioinformaticians and lab support staff. Every lab can benefit from a laboratory information management system to ensure repeatable, high quality results and easy data searching and reporting.

Why Is LIMS Important For Modern Laboratories?

A modern lab needs to have proper tracking of processing details as well as materials, samples, instruments and more. Lab processing data, including assay data, are some of the most prized and valuable assets of a pharma, biotechnology, research or clinical laboratory. It is critical to ensure that these are not only collected properly and that the data is accurate but that the data is easily accessible, visualizable and analyzable — all these constitute a modern informatics platform to enable the digital transformation of your life sciences organization.

What does a Laboratory Information Management System do?

The main purpose of a LIMS is to improve lab efficiency and accuracy by reducing manual operations. A laboratory information management system will perform a range of core functions. These normally include:

– Tracking bench protocols work via workflow process tracking
– Accountability of work done via process and data audit tracking
– Sample management
– Materials management
– Data access, dashboards and reporting

Naturally, not all LIMS Software Systems perform all these functions and the ability of the systems to enable rapid implementation of protocols will vary greatly.

Who benefits from a LIMS the most?

Lab managers, lab technicians, bioinformaticians, and lab support staff all utilize lab management software and stand to benefit from its repeatable, highly quality results and easy data searching and reporting. From our perspective, the scientist, no matter their role or title, is the chief beneficiary of a LIMS. When a lab management system enables powerful workflow configurability with little friction, the true potential of scientific productivity is unleashed.

How is complex science making the LIMS more important?

Due to rising molecule complexity, enhanced technology, and a variety of other factors, the modern lab is home to more data, from a more sophisticated range of instruments, across a more complex set of processes than ever before. Rising complexity in all aspects of scientific operations together expose the inadequacies of legacy information management approaches and the need for a simple, configurable, and scalable solution. The need for a proper LIMS is even greater in large molecule discovery and development, which is known for its unrivaled data demands.
