A laboratory information management system (LIMS)is a software-based laboratory and information management system with features that support a modern laboratory’s operations. Key features include—but are not limited to—workflow and data tracking support, flexible architecture, and data exchange interfaces, which fully “support its use in regulated environments”. The features and uses of a LIMS have evolved over the years from simple sample tracking to an enterprise resource planning tool that manages multiple aspects of laboratory informatics.

  • Laboratory is one of the most important asset for
    Pharmaceutical, Chemical & Pathology Industry
  • Laboratory Information is even
    more vital & critical for such
  • Companies spend huge amount of money on maintaining the
    manual records, with little retrieving ability of information.
  • LIMS is an Innovative & Revolutionary concept that will change your
    world of Laboratory forever!
  • LIMS can save you a huge
    amount of
    time, money & energy, while
    dealing with Laboratory

What is the'LIMS Concept'?

1. Create Specifications for Testing

2. Allocate Samples to Test Analysts

Specifications Created >

Dashboard shows data for
1. New Specifications Arrived
2. Allocated Specifications
3. Test Completed
4. Customized View Possible

Allocate the Test
Samples to Various Test
You can create the
Reporting Hierarchy
where you can Specify
Test Manager, Test
Supervisor & Test
Analysts Roles.

Specifications created
from SCM are Registered in
Test Database, for future

3. Define Tests, Procedure & Formulae

The feature that makes LIMS more Powerful & Flexible

Define Test Cases (Physical, Chemical, Biological)
for various types of Raw Materials

Define the Test Procedures – elaborative
descriptions on how to carry out the tests.

Define the Scientific Formulae required to
evaluate the test cases.

Finally Define the Range of Output, which will
make the test Pass or Fail.

4. Create worksheet for Tests

Manual Laboratory Tests can be carried out

  • When Test Cases are selected for a
    sample, a Worksheet is generated, where all
    the tests are mentioned in required
    sequence, with explanations of how to carry
    out the tests.
  • The worksheets are printed by Analyst and
    readings are noted when tests are
    performed on various machines in
  • Finally, these readings are entered into the
    system for test evaluation.
  • The system can be designed to fetch
    Automated Readings, as per requirement

5. Evaluate Test Results

Automated Test Evaluation using Scientific Formulae

  • Once observations & readings are entered
    in LIMS, the system evaluates all tests with the
    help of pre-defined formulae.
  • Results can be verified by Supervisor & Test
  • The Test Manager can see the result, when
    supervisor approves the results.
  • Supervisor can see the result for Approval
    or Rejection, only when Test Analyst
    approves the sample.

6. Certificate of Analysis

COA for Company Audit

  • Certificate of Analysis is important step
    towards conclusion of any test and
    mandatory from Regulatory guidelines.
  • When Test Manager approves the Test
    results, the COA is issued by the system.
  • For failed test cases, samples go into
    Rejected queue. These Samples can be retested
    or sent back to supplier Vendor.
  • Approved samples, which has COA, go to
    Production Line.
  • COA layout can be pre-defined and
    output is taken in PDF.
