In the twenty-first century, ensuring food and water security remains one of humanity’s most critical jobs, especially in light of mounting worries about the adverse effects of climate change. Many segments of the global population face the dismal reality of inadequate food supplies, constrained access to clean water, and hunger if food and water security are not continuously prioritized. This includes all of the quality and safety guarantees that go along with it. Food and beverage laboratories conduct various types of testing. [Read More]
COVID-19 accelerated the process of digital transformation for many enterprises. To meet the demands of today’s competitive business environment, organizations are integrating digital technologies and business applications at an accelerating pace. Yet with more and more project managers utilizing Agile methodology (94% of respondents in the 15th Annual State of Agile Report noted that their organization practices Agile), industry leaders need a clear plan to sustain a long-term vision and achieve desired outcomes.

In Life Sciences we have data that we would classify as “Big Data”. That being high in volume, velocity, or variety. This Big Data is fundamentally transforming the industry. The explosion of health-relevant data enables new opportunity for R&D transformation; however, tools are needed to store, manage, and analyze this data. [Read More]
What are the main questions on a Laboratory Manager, Laboratory Director, Quality Manager, COO and/or CFO’s mind which are asked of the laboratory? There is operational reporting which is metrics related to how the laboratory is performing and useful to know on a regular basis. Examples may be turnaround time for testing and how many samples of what test are being processed. [Read More]
Lithium-ion batteries remain the gold standard for energy storage, providing a lightweight, portable, and rechargeable source of power for a wide range of applications. The current growing demand for electric vehicles has put renewed focus on the methods used to mine & extract lithium for energy storage use, including the quality & scalability of these processes. Lithium mining operations involve a wide range of teams & workflows, from quality control (QC) and research & development (R&D) laboratories, through to metal accounting, environmental monitoring, & process control.

For some lab-based organizations, commercial software is financially out of their reach or unsuitable for their needs. These organizations often turn to developing their own system to meet their needs. Karim et al. of King Abdulaziz and Temple University are no exception, in this 2022 paper explaining the development of their Biosearch System, a web-based laboratory information management system (LIMS) for biobanking and biomedical research. After a brief introduction, the authors provide details of their development philosophy and the software requirements for their LIMS. They then explain how the system functions, along with the results of a performance test using their own existing biobank data. After discussing the significance of their system, they conclude that "Biosearch System is a user-friendly LIMS solution for managing biobank specimens and their associated clinical information to facilitate genomic medicine research, leading to the discovery of disease biomarkers and therapeutic targets."
