LIMS Consulting and Implementation

Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) have become essential to managing lab operations.

They can be used to track samples, standardize protocols, record experimental data, manage orders. In many cases, ELN (Electronic Laboratory Notebooks) are tightly integrated with a LIMS. 

When it comes to selecting a LIMS, life science organizations now have many options to choose from. Many organizations, generally the larger ones, elect to develop their own proprietary system. Others turn to inexpensive web-based applications that have emerged in the last 10 years. Some may purchase expensive software applications that they host on premises.

The Difficulty of LIMS Selection

Yet selecting a LIMS is one of the most difficult decisions a research team has to make. It is difficult to evaluate the LIMS without using it in the lab. Not matter the solution that will selected, it is likely to be expensive. And a wrong decision will result in a tool that won’t be used or that will get in the way of research instead of enabling it.  

The Importance of LIMS Configuration

Once a LIMS system has been selected, it generally needs to be configured to support the client unique scientific workflows. This deployment effort requires both a deep understanding of the organization scientific objectives and of the LIMS data model.

How GenoFAB Helps

Through its LIMS services, GenoFAB helps its clients evaluate their needs, compare LIMS options, deploy the LIMS they have selected, and support their team in their daily use of this critical system. GenoFAB clients can also choose to use the eLabJournal LIMS hosted on the GenoFAB private cloud.
