Request for Information: Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS)

May 18, 2018 @ 12:00 pm EDT


"The purpose of this RFI is to solicit relevant information and marketplace input regarding procurement of a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) for the Massachusetts State Public Health Laboratory (MA SPHL), Department of Public Health Bureau of Infectious Disease and Laboratory Sciences (BIDLS). BIDLS is seeking information for replacing three current laboratory information systems.

The MA SPHL is comprised of 18 separate laboratories that provide critical human, food and animal testing capacity. This capacity is not provided in any other laboratory setting in Massachusetts. Unlike other laboratories, the MA SPHL represents a 24/7 public health response to infectious disease outbreak and terrorist threats. The MA SPHL acts as a reference laboratory for identification of unusual and rare infections like Ebola and Smallpox. The MA SPHL is unique in monitoring of outbreaks and detecting and identifying emerging viruses and other threats like new strains of influenza.

The purpose of the laboratory information system consolidation is to assure safety and accuracy of reporting for test results from disease outbreaks as well as chemical and environmental samples submitted to the laboratory."
