Managing a LIMS

  • Richard R. Mahaffey


In previous chapters, we have examined many aspects of laboratories and the management of information related to sample processing. We have looked at the use of LIMS packages as tools with which to gather, interpret, report, store, and provide audit trails for test results and to manage all types of laboratory information. We have seen that efficiency increases as a result of laboratory automation and that LIMS can be used as a backbone for automation projects. However, to this point, we have not investigated the factors in determining LIMS requirements, evaluating methods of obtaining a LIMS, installation, operation, or support of a LIMS.
