SampleManager 11 laboratory information management system (LIMS) features advanced tools that are designed to improve laboratory process mapping, management and automation. Users can build workflows to reflect their individual laboratory processes and take ownership of workflow management, allowing them to be synchronized with the changing requirements of the lab, without specialist IT intervention. Lab personnel can use the LIMS workflow to automate the logical decisions driving their activities, therefore improving throughput by saving time and simplifying user interactions. The system delivers workflow configurability, user-intuitive multiple sample login, point-and-click extensibility and enhanced data mining and tracking capabilities to benefit a wide variety of industries, including pharmaceutical QA/QC, oil and gas, contract labs, food producers and process industries. Traceability features, including the ability to track aliquots and composites, enable fine control over samples and more reliable data for decision-making and compliance.
