With a LIMS, you can automate workflows, integrate instruments, and manage samples and associated information
A Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is software that allows you to effectively manage samples and associated data. By using a LIMS, your lab can automate workflows, integrate instruments, and manage samples and associated information. Additionally, you can produce reliable results more quickly and can track data from sequencing runs over time and across experiments to improve efficiency.
Modern genomics generates an unprecedented amount of data. Faced with increasing data volumes and sample throughput along with frequent changes in technology, labs must modernize their approach to managing, tracking, and centralizing genomics data.
Although the primary purpose of a LIMS is to track and manage samples, it can do so much more. It can:
We offer guidance to next-generation sequencing (NGS) labs on selecting a LIMS. These include the key features to look for, and considerations around the types of instruments you’ll need to integrate. Managing and sequencing samples are particularly beneficial in a high-throughput environment due to the efficiency and accuracy a LIMS provides.Learn How to Choose an NGS LIMS
