A hidden benefit within a LIMS: Human Resource information for laboratory personnel

Many of the broader laboratory based benefits of LIMS are well known: LIMS track samples from entry into the laboratory (in some cases even the field data and collection) to final analysis and disposal; LIMS track and document reagent and standards usage within the laboratory; LIMS generate reports and electronic data deliverables (EDDs). However, one important and often overlooked feature is that LIMS can also track and record human resource (HR) information.

Enhancing Laboratory Efficiency Using Cost Effective LIMS for Biobanks and Testing Laboratories

Modern day labs are under constant pressure to reduce expenses, improvise lab efficiency and constantly enhance the quality of results. To begin with, it is important to understand what lab efficiency exactly means. In simple terms, lab efficiency is all about how a lab effectively manages time and available resources to improvise data quality, eliminate manual errors, improve laboratory results turnaround time, and streamline lab operations. Many labs are interested in improvising their lab efficiency; however, are not keen to invest in cost-intensive Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) to manage their laboratory data.

10 Ways LIMS Can Automate Your Lab

Increasing productivity and effectiveness can be addressed in a number of ways within a LIMS, the ability of the LIMS to automate manual processes, procedures, and tasks is by far the largest source of these improvements.
