STARLIMS Congratulates the California Department of Health Services for its “Best of California Award”

STARLIMS Corporation, a leading global provider of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), today announced its congratulations to the California Department of Health Services (CDHS) for receiving the “Demonstrated Excellence in Project Delivery – Best of California Award”. CDHS received the award in recognition of its implementation of a STARLIMS solution in the Richmond Laboratory Complex, the tertiary public health lab for the State of California. 


“We are delighted to see CDHS receiving this much-deserved recognition,” said Jeff Ferguson, Chief Operating Officer at STARLIMS Corporation. “The success of this project reflects the commitment and hard work of key CDHS managers, and the leadership of Mr. Chris Cruz, Senior Project Manager. We congratulate Mr. Cruz and CDHS on their achievements and look forward to continued collaboration.”


“Best of California Awards” are designed to recognize California government agencies for “efforts and innovations to advance service to the citizen via the use of technology.” They are awarded by the Center for Digital Government, a national research and advisory institute on information technology policies and best practices in state and local government.

Replacing several legacy systems, it incorporates input from over 110 instruments and a workflow for approximately 200 tests. The STARLIMS solution serves about 100 lab technicians and scientists in five laboratories.
