Think a LIMS Is Not for Your Industry? – Think Again

Recent data released by Autoscribe Informatics shows the breadth of industries purchasing a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS); many for the first time. This market analysis from recent projects shows the cross-section of clients is moving well beyond what many think of as the LIMS core market of Healthcare, Medical Devices, and Pharmaceuticals.

These highly regulated industries have been using Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) for many years because they must manage their data securely. However, recently significant growth has been seen in other areas including:

  • Cannabis testing to keep up with extended use and regulation of cannabis in the leisure and medical industries
  • Environmental testing to meet tighter regulatory requirements, especially in the water and nuclear power industries
  • Food & Beverage testing to ensure data from quality control testing is readily available in order to meet increasingly strict FDA audit demands
  • Extended Biobank management systems to support ever-growing research into personalized medicine, along with new biotechnology and clinical testing systems to support trials and the roll-out of new treatments.

Other areas with quality control functions are switching from paper systems to LIMS including diverse manufacturing organizations from paper and materials to chemicals and oil additives. In many of these cases reducing the burden of managing paper records and the overhead of manually retrieving data across various batches is a key driver, particularly for management reporting and customer audits.

“We are seeing an ever-broader selection of laboratory types embrace LIMS”, said Tim Daniels, Marketing Manager at Autoscribe. “Flexibility is the key to meeting this increasing diversity which is why Matrix Gemini LIMS is so successful. It is a highly configurable solution using a drag-and-drop graphical editor. This allows changes to be made easily to every screen, menu and list box in the workflow. The result is a LIMS that meets the needs of every laboratory, whilst remaining easy to understand and use.”
