Justifying a LIMS for your Small Water/Wastewater Laboratory

A currently popular and well-known definition of insanity is the repetition of the same behavior with the expectation of different results. Moreover, it is a key principle of laboratories that processes be repeatable with predictable results. Why is it, then, that many small water/wastewater or environmental labs continue to labor using paper and pencil and, at best, Excel spreadsheets for information management and yet expect to magically meet or exceed regulatory standards including NELAC/NELAP (TNI) and 21 CFR 11, increase efficiency, handle instrument calibration and maintenance (never mind results files!), generate all reports and trend analyses quickly and distribute them effectively, and interface with outside systems when it has ALWAYS been a struggle?

LIMS to get hot as Nano gets BIG!

Have you ever fantasized what it would look like ‘playing with wild fire’ or ‘making mountain from a mole’? If the response is overwhelmingly negative, the field of nanotechnology can give you some answers. Nanotechnology is a field of science that is garnering strength as we make new strides towards innovation and technology in preparation for the future.
