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.”
