A Web-Based LIMS Software Solution for Managing Requests, Samples, Processes and Instrument Data
Whether your lab is doing PCR, genomics, proteomics, protein engineering, medicinal chemistry, sequencing or other lab experiments/tests, it is operating as an advanced workflow processing center. These workflows start when the sample arrives at your lab and continue as the sample is processed in one or more lab experiments. Typically, though, your work does not end when the sample is accessioned and put in a freezer. In fact, that is just the beginning of an overarching process involving bench protocol tracking, material tracking, instrument integrations, data analysis and results delivery. To realize the digital lab, your lab management system should be able to be easily configured to meet all these requirements at scale while retaining ease of use and agility to change.
Why use Web-Based LIMS Software for Labs?
Many laboratories today use spreadsheets or outdated software for lab management to perform tracking of samples through these processes. These methods usually are lacking proper traceability, searching or other key efficiency features like instrument automation. This decreases lab efficiency reducing throughput, while also not delivering on proper data delivery and reporting.
The modern digital labs view process as an asset. Under this scenario the lab should be able to quickly configure complex process workflows, chain the workflows together into overarching processes and be able to then track work progress, show work to be done, etc. Critical within the lab workflow is automation both from a physical processing standpoint, such as acquiring automated liquid handler robots, to the laboratory management systems integrating with robotics to send instructions as well as read output whether it's sample quantitative / qualitative assessments or assay result data.
Looking to the future, scale is going to be critical. One thing that is certain is that data volumes will increase over time and not decrease. The web based LIMS system should be able to scale to huge data volumes with many data points and be able to load it all in a timely fashion without bogging down the system performance over time.
With Sapio web-based LIMS software there is no limit on what type of processes can be tracked due to the versatility of Sapio to adapt to any lab process quickly via configuration. Further, in addition to our many out of the box integrations, with configurable instrument integrations Sapio Web-Based LIMS system can load most instrument files with no coding.
Beyond traditional Lab Management Software
With Sapio you can easily configure processes to easily collect key information. Sapio then enables industry-best, cross system, targeted searching to enable easy access to important information. Also unique to Sapio’s Web LIMS is that it includes built in charting so you can take any search result and visualize it immediately inside our lab management systems. Sapio Lab Management Software also tracks all turnaround time metrics so you can easily search and visualize how your lab is performing over time.
Collaborative Web Based LIMS System for Lab Management
In addition to its configurable workflow engine, Sapio LIMS software is the only solution that offers real time collaboration. When working through a lab workflow any number of lab technicians can be working concurrently on the same workflow. Each one can be editing and recording important information without other lab technicians having to exit the workflow. Also unique to Sapio LIMS System is that it has real time data updates, so as others make updates to the workflow or data you are viewing, the system will reflect those changes immediately without you having to refresh the view. Sapio SaaS LIMS software is therefore the only system on the market that ensures you are always seeing current data whether inside or outside a workflow process.
The Digital Lab Realized: Is web-based LIMS notebook software worth it?
Sapio SaaS based LIMS software is built on the industry best informatics platform with integrated LIMS, Electronic Lab Notebook and Scientific Data Management. All data is cross system, targeted searchable and can be visualized and even analyzed with our integrated data warehouse. No more data silos, no more expensive and often failed integration efforts.
Sapio also has numerous out of the box, pre-built solution for key application areas like:
- Biorepository and Chemrepository including Virtual Entity Registration
