Factory Principles Applied to Analytical Chemistry: An Integrated Laboratory Management System
Equipping a laboratory with state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation and allocating routine tasks to preparation and analytical robots is a laudable aim which has tangible business and technical benefits. To be totally effective, however, there exists a need for brains to combine the brawn of these components into a cohesive functional unit. The brains behind a laboratory operation have, in the past, been laboratory information management systems (LIMS). The nomenclature is significant.
