LIMS for Research Laboratories
Managing the day-to-day operations of a research laboratory is a very challenging task. It requires speed, efficiency, and flexibility to keep up in a fast-paced and ever-changing environment. That’s why an advanced Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is essential in helping research labs streamline operations while maintaining the highest standards of data integrity.
Here at SCC Soft Computer, we designed our LIMS to meet the demands of all types of research laboratories through cloud-based data collection, storage, and analysis that removes the need for outdated paper-based documentation and allows team members to focus on their work and its outcomes. That said, understanding and choosing a LIMS can be overwhelming for both research laboratory novices and experts – so we’re breaking it all down for you in this article.
What Are Research Laboratories?
While the work done at these facilities is often complex, the definition of a research laboratory is actually simple: these are laboratories whose main objective is conducting scientific research of natural resources, medical resources, and manufactured materials.
How LIMS Supports Research Laboratories
As we mentioned earlier, managing the daily operations of a research laboratory is no simple task. It requires extraordinary attention to detail, effective collaboration, efficient workflows, and highly reliable data management. A cloud-based LIMS helps to streamline these operations while drastically improving data integrity and the ability to share it across team members.
We’ve designed SCC’s LIMS to support a broad range of facilities, including research laboratories, with key features within a user-friendly and intuitive tool that makes daily operations easier while reducing the risk of mistakes. These features include:
- Workflow-Based Testing
- Versatile Testing Options
- Advanced Reporting Options
- Equipment Monitoring & Maintenance
- Instrument Integration
- Cutting Edge IT Standards
- Quality Support
- Specimen Preparation
