Computerised LIMS


In today’s modern analytical laboratory such as a contract research organisation (CRO), a laboratory information management system (LIMS) is no longer a luxury but a necessity, critical to the management and control of laboratory data and information. Due to the rising cost in R&D and biotechnology, many companies are looking at ways to maximise efficiency and profitability in order to remain competitive

Approaches to achieve these goals include implementing LIMS and automation, deploying Six Sigma, extending facilities to the Asia-Pacific region, and increasing the amount of outsourcing to CROs. This article will focus on ways to leverage automation with LIMS and method validation software as a means to increase operational efficiency, enhance data quality and facilitate regulatory compliance.

The majority of US laboratories face the challenge of doing more with fewer resources, at lower prices, in a complex regulatory landscape, and with a constantly evolving global economy. Organisations often do not invest in automation infrastructure, instead, relying on outdated manual systems that are prime targets for audits. Not only can negative audit findings prove to be costly, but they can damage the organisation’s reputation and result in a loss of business.
