What is LIMS?

LIMS, or Laboratory Information Management System, is a specialized software system designed to capture and manage data related to laboratory operations. LIMS handles a wide range of lab activities from sample tracking to data analysis. LIMS streamlines lab processes, making it easier for lab personnel to access and manage lab information quickly and accurately.

LIMS has transformed from a mere sample tracking system to the digital backbone of any laboratory. It is more than just an organizational tool, helping manage efficiency and expense; it also serves as a platform that records data, results and scientific information.

With its capacity to streamline laboratory operations from instrument upkeep and samples, through to people and consumables, LIMS is the ultimate way to manage the entire lab process. It standardizes workflows, reduces human error and guarantees maximum efficiency by keeping track of important data related to all laboratory samples.

Benefits Using Lab Data Management Software

LIMS provides laboratories with the ability to manage and store large volumes of data. With LIMS, users can quickly and accurately collect, analyze, and report on laboratory results without having to manually input each step of the process.

LIMS also helps laboratories automate their workflows to ensure they meet quality control standards while reducing time spent managing lab data. LIMS also offers secure data storage and access control to protect sensitive information.

The Relationship Between eDHR and LIMS

eDHR and LIMS are closely related, as they both contribute to operational efficiency in laboratory settings. By integrating eDHR with LIMS, laboratories can further streamline their operations and increase efficiency.

Integrating eDHR with LIMS allows laboratory personnel to access electronic device history records directly from the LIMS system. This provides a more comprehensive view of the manufacturing process, allowing laboratory personnel to quickly identify any issues that arise. It also reduces the need for manual data entry, improving accuracy and reducing errors.

LIMS can also be used to manage and track the data associated with electronic device history records. This makes it easier to search and retrieve eDHRs, improving efficiency and reducing the time required to access this critical information.

Using LIMS to Increase Operational Efficiency

LIMS can help laboratories improve their operational efficiency by streamlining complex lab processes and providing real-time insights into the performance of laboratory operations.

LIMS helps users track test results quickly, analyze trends, and optimize workflows. LIMS also provides enhanced data security, reducing the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive information. With LIMS, laboratories can be sure that their lab data is secure and accurate while increasing operational efficiency.

Collect, Handle, Interpret And Manage Your Lab Data with SmartHub LIMS

SmartHub LIMS mobile allows you to get lab sample data into a digital automated form.

Record Lab Sample Data

With SmartHub LIMS mobile, lab sample data can now be digitized and tracked by location, equipment, or asset with unprecedented accuracy. Likewise, our proprietary SmartHub PI connectors allow manual data to be seamlessly transmitted into OSI PI for enhanced quality control on the engineering front while deriving analytical solutions that would streamline management workflows.

Compare actual to control limits

With this feature, users can easily see when values are out of defined limits as the data is being entered. 

Enable Smart Workflow Management

SmartHub LIMS allows lab technicians to capture manual data for it to be synchronized with SmartHub Apps. Then, SmartHub Apps source real-time, historical, collected data from process variables to enable smart workflow management.

Produce Reports And Plot Data Trends

With SmartHub LIMS all sample data inputted is synced with SmartHub PI, allowing lab technicians to easily produce reports.

SmartHub LIMS enables:

  •   Viewing and edit sample data historical values

  •   Viewing numeric and tabular data of the individual points

  •   Tracking continuous progress

  •   Producing sample data reports

  •   Building sample data trends

Recurring scheduling

SmartHub LIMS offers an option to schedule recurring sample dates, allowing users to know what samples are due, when the samples are due, and reporting to show late or missed samples.

Compatible With Any Mobile Platform or As a Desktop App

SmartHub LIMS is available as a desktop application or as a cross-platform mobile application compatible with leading mobile operating systems including iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.
