A Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is a software-based system that allows you to effectively manage laboratory and associated data in order to improve lab efficiency. An effective LIMS supports a modern laboratory’s operations and enables you to automate workflows, integrate instruments, and manage lab data and related information easily, quickly and reliably. LIMS also aim to make data and information easier to store, track, and assess over time and across experiments so that labs can evaluate and improve operational efficiency.
Aside from the key functions of sample management, instrument and application integration, and electronic data exchange, there are numerous additional operations that can be managed in a LIMS. This includes but is not limited to:
Modern LIMS have implemented extensive configurability, as each laboratory's needs for tracking additional data points can vary widely. Hyla Soft leverages leading LIMS offerings for our customers to help them create LIMS that are adaptable to their specific environments and needs. Many LIMS users also have regulatory concerns to comply with, such as CLIA, HIPAA, GLP, and FDA specifications, affecting certain aspects of sample management in a LIMS solution. One key to compliance with many of these standards is audit logging of all changes to LIMS data, and in some cases a full electronic signature system is required for rigorous tracking of field-level changes to LIMS data. Hyla Soft is the right expert partner to help process manufacturers automate their labs, ensure regulatory compliance and make their day-to-day laboratory processes more efficient and standardized.
