LIMS for diagnostic & research labs involved in molecular, cytology, histology, NGS, NBS, translational medicine & bio-banking

Modern specialty diagnostic laboratories need an integrated LIMS that can handle molecular diagnostics, cytology, histopathology, NGS, FLOW, biochemistry, genetic cytology (Cyto / FISH)and microbiology related processes in a single system. Advanced detection of mutations, abnormalities in cells, chromosomes, karyotypes, DNA, gene, enzymes studies and biomarkers are very helpful in identification of potential source of disease and better patient care.

Khemia Omega 11: Ad Hoc Queries

In almost every laboratory, a group of standard queries are developed within the LIMS. This prearranged group of queries covers 80-90% of the queries most laboratories and analysts will ever need. It is that “other” 10-20% of unique queries that can and will be the sticking point. It is often the lack of quick, customizable queries that can trip up productivity or limit quality control checks. Khemia’s Omega 11 offers an ad hoc query writer to overcome this.
