LIMS 2003 Readers’ Choice Finalist: WinLIMS
WinLIMS supports a family of clients: Windows Client for traditional local networks, Web Client that runs over intranets and the Web, and Pocket Client for PDAs and tablet PCs. The ability to run a LIMS over the Web provides flexibility for data entry or result retrieval and also overcomes poor local communication problems, for example to allow sample login from a remote location. Suppliers cannot only log in a COA sample to their customer’s laboratory in advance of shipment, but also the COA results themselves. The customers of a consulting laboratory can access their validated results over the Web.
