Now that cell phone and internet coverage are virtually everywhere, it is extremely difficult to disconnect from work. Believe me, I know; I’ve been hiking up the side of a mountain in NC and still received phone calls and emails. Answering work related phone calls while out of breath and telling your five year old to be quiet at the same time can be quite a challenge. However, that kind of service, whether in sales or technical support, is expected these days. Professionally, you are expected to be connected.

March 22, 2017 - Keeping a LIMS up to date with State and Federal EPA regulations

A LIMS is a great and almost necessary tool in any modern day environmental laboratory, whether commercial, state or municipal. In a highly regulated community, the LIMS, like everything else in the laboratory, must evolve. Some evolutions are complex, however, 99% of them are very simple and in many ways, mostly a matter of proper record keeping.

March 15, 2017 - LIMS in academics, then and now

I recently read, or I should say reread, an article written by Douglas Perry for the American Chemical Society in Today’s Chemist at Work titled “LIMS in the academic world” (https://pubs.acs.org/subscribe/archive/tcaw/11/i01/html/01comp.html). The article was published in January of 2002. Almost exactly fifteen years later, most of the well discussed points are still valid. LIMS has not truly found a home in academic settings despite the fact it is rare to see an operating commercial laboratory in any business sector without some sort of LIMS in place today.
