06/22/2022 - The Ideal LIMS for Clinical Diagnostics

Finding and implementing the ideal LIMS is not as straight forward as other software purchases. It requires in-depth research, planning, communication and knowledge. Given how much information the lab has to arm itself with to make the best decision on the ideal LIMS, this process can leave many labs frustrated before even getting started. We want to help alleviate some of the frustration. The Ideal LIMS for Clinical Diagnostics: A Practical Buyer’s Guide eBook helps jumpstart the information gathering your lab will need when purchasing a LIMS, and it assists you with brainstorming the questions you should come prepared with when evaluating LIMS vendors. Download your complimentary copy of the book today, and start mapping the journey to your ideal LIMS.  [Read More]

06/21/2022 - What Should Be Integrated with a LIMS?

What Should Integrate with a LIMSWhen you implement a laboratory information management system (LIMS), you’ll have to plan for what you will integrate with your LIMS and when you will do it. Understanding the potential benefits or difficulties of integrations will help the implementation team do this planning. In today’s informatics and data-sharing environment, it’s true that almost any system or instrument can be integrated with a LIMS, but what should be integrated with your LIMS and in what order is unique to your situation.  [Read More]

06/20/2022 - Simultaneous quantification of 17 cannabinoids in cannabis inflorescence by liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry

In this 2022 paper published in Separations, Hewavitharana et al. examine a more simplified means of quantifying cannabinoids using liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC-MS) with a low flow rate rather than a more expensive ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) system. After descrribing their materials and methods used, the authors discuss the optimization of their extraction method, as well as the optimization of chromatographic separation and mass spectrometry, and how the processes were validated. They conclude that "the main advantage of using this approach is that the method can be easily adapted to use with a simple HPLC-MS (single quadrupole) system," and that "the method is well suited for routine phytocannabinoid analysis across a range of applications in a variety of laboratory settings."
