08/31/2022 - LIMS in Manufacturing

The history of laboratory informatics began in earnest with the commercialization of instrument data systems and LIMS software, the latter having the larger impact since it could affect the entire lab’s productivity and benefit the organization it supports. That software found a home in both industrial Research & Development, Manufacturing, and Healthcare (clinical laboratories). In each of these situations, LIMS provided a means of organizing and managing testing workflows and streamlining operations. [Read More]

08/31/2022 - Using LIMS Chain of Custody to Track Items and Ownership

Automatically recording the Chain of Custody (CoC) for an item is essential when it is necessary to track an item throughout its lifetime. A CoC will, for example record the location of an item, showing where it is now as well as where it has been. A comprehensive CoC, however, must record more than just the location history of an item; for example, it can be important to know who is, and who has been, responsible for an item during its lifetime.

08/31/2022 - Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches CE-IVD (IVDD) Next-Generation Sequencing Test and Analysis Software

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is quickly becoming the platform of choice for tumor molecular profiling due to its ability to simultaneously report on multiple biomarkers. However, lengthy turnaround times can limit the clinical utility of these results. To meet the need for rapid genomic insights, Thermo Fisher Scientific today launched the CE-IVD (IVDD) Oncomine Dx Express Test and Oncomine Reporter Dx for use in clinical labs. [Read More]

08/31/2022 - Laboratory information management system for COVID-19 non-clinical efficacy trial data

In this 2022 paper published in Laboratory Animal Research, Yoon et al., representing multiple healthcare entities in South Korea, present a study of their developed and implemented COVID-19 non-clinical trial LIMS. The LIMS, which was developed due to not finding systems "allowing multiple institutions to participate simultaneously in research related to COVID-19," was deployed at six animal Biosafety level 3 (BSL-3) institutions. After providing background on their impetus for developing the LIMS, the authors present the specifics of their solution and then discuss its applications at its participating BSL-3 institutions. They conclude that the system not only enables more "efficient and reliable documentation, management, and reporting of non-clinical COVID-19 test results," but it also "can be adapted to different research projects."
