Universal LIMS-based platform for the automated processing of cell-based assays

In this brief article by Schmieder et al., the authors provide an example of applying laboratory informatics to research activities for drug discovery and personalized medicine. In particular, the authors look at the in vitro nephrotoxicity assay and the use of transepithelial electrical resistance (TEER) to evaluate the barrier function of cellular layers. Citing issues such as the significant multi-step processes involved with this type of testing, the authors attempt to demonstrate how a laboratory information management system (LIMS), laboratory execution system (LES), and automation standards such as SiLA can be used together to decrease the workflow complexity of such cell-based assays.
