Using a LIMS to Solve Today’s Most Common Laboratory Challenges
(Part of the Laboratory session)
The presentation will include the following:
- Traceability –The ability to trace back from sample login to disposal is becoming increasingly important based on changes to standards such as TNI and ISO 17025.
- Data integrity – Learn how companies are integrating LIMS and laboratory automation to eliminate data quality issues.
- Reporting – Automating this entire process is a significant time saver by leveraging Web portals and automated emails to reduce turnaround time, thus increasing lab productivity, and lowering operational costs. We will highlight the ability to integrate LIMS with Hach WIMS to generate the monthly discharge monitoring report (DMR).
- Attaining/maintaining laboratory certifications – Quality standards such as TNI and ISO 17025 put significant pressure on laboratories to keep accurate track of hundreds of data points, QC data, laboratory supplies, instrument calibration records, and employee training records.
