LIMS Reporting

Khemia’s Omega 11 LIMS has a complete and easily configurable report developer that is straightforward and easy to navigate. With a few simple steps, what main sections are to be included in a report, what order they are to be presented in and what analytical data, field data and/or QC data are to be presented may be modified as needed, allowing a laboratory to quickly configure their reports to fit their clients’ specific needs.

Free LIMS – An Oxymoron?

We're all familiar with Open Source "free" LIMS - but we pose the question: Is a Free LIMS really free? We take a closer look at this by examining the landscape, Implementation, Enhancement, and the Support for an Open Source "free" LIMS.

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.
