Laboratory Information Management Systems

We support you with the optimization of your Laboratory Information Management System

Laboratories are subject to various strict compliance requirements. The management of which is becoming more and more challenging due to increasing complexity. LIMS (Laboratory Information Management Systems) offer a wide range of options for supporting users and ensuring the required high quality. Laboratory managers are particularly challenged to find and apply the right approach when introducing and adapting LIMS to their specific requirements.

LIMS at a glance

The processing of laboratory information has expanded and modern LIMS solutions offer various modules and customization options. The main objectives are to manage analytical results according to regulatory requirements, manage equipment and consumables as well as reporting and CAPA solutions. A modern LIMS improves operations by providing automatic alerts for consumable shortages, scheduled maintenance of lab equipment, and optimized lab utilization to reduce costs. OOS events are immediately displayed, and actions (such as re-testing and CAPA) are automatically initiated to minimize non-compliance risks.

The integration of LIMS with laboratory instruments and standard software such as SAP is common practice. Measurement results are automatically transferred to LIMS, errors are avoided, and processes are accelerated. Inspection orders can be imported from SAP and batch releases can be reported automatically. Newer solutions enable the display of batch release-relevant data such as CAPAs or OOS at the release site to ensure patient safety.

The multitude of individual interfaces between established software and devices and LIMS poses implementation challenges. We support you in master data management, configuration, programming, and validation.
