06/08/2022 - Harmful Algae Blooms are Rising: Could a Water Testing LIMS Help Your Lab Cope?

Anti-Water World: The Rise of Harmful Algae Blooms | LabLynx LIMS “Life finds a way.” Okay, maybe Ian Malcolm didn’t have algae in mind when he uttered those infamous words. But with harmful algal blooms increasing worldwide every year, the microscopic organisms are making as dramatic an impact as a tyrannosaurus rex (or indo-raptor, for that matter). Humans are directly in the crosshairs of these toxic blooms. And that means stepping up the game in your lab. If your water testing LIMS isn’t prepped for the coming onslaught, it might be time for an upgrade. [Read More]

06/08/2022 - Cell Therapy Manufacturing and the Unique Requirements for a LIMS, QMS, and MES Solution

The manufacturing and delivery of cell therapies share similar attributes of processing which distinguishes them from pharmaceutical or biopharmaceutical products. They require end-to-end visibility that ensures chain of custody, identity, and condition. This impacts various aspects of the process including the quality management, LIMS and MES solutions leveraged in these organizations. In this blog we discuss the unique requirements.  [Read More]

06/08/2022 - The Role of ADME & Toxicology Studies in Drug Discovery & Development

Scientist involved in ADMET studyWhat do ADMET studies provide to drug developers?  A critical piece in drug discovery and development is conducting DMPK (Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics) studies, often referred to as ADMET (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Elimination, Toxicity) studies. These studies help to determine the viability of a drug candidate by answering these key questions...[Read More]

06/08/2022 - Have You Ever Considered Your Lab as a Logistics Supply Chain?

Sometimes, when you’re trying to come up with a better way to solve a challenge, it can help to step back and consider the situation from a new vantage point. We did this when we were building our new product — Labbit — an intelligent laboratory information management system (LIMS) designed with lab operations as the focus. [Read More]

06/07/2022 - Fueling clinical and translational research in Appalachia: Informatics platform approach

In this 2020 paper published in JMIR Medical Informatics, Cecchetti et al. of the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine at Marshall University present their health informatics platform, the Appalachian Informatics Platform (AIP). Designed to support "research efforts by enabling curation and analysis of data using the different components," the platform is described in detail following the presentation of necessary background information on the unique informatics and healthcare challenges of the Appalachia region. After describing their methodology and results, the authors discuss the perceived utility of AIP and conclude that AIP is indeed useful in "enabling seamless and secure data access, model development through an analytics engine to explore novel and unexpected hypotheses, and simple yet effective communication of all findings via interactive visualization."
