LIMS Consulting

For almost two decades, LabAnswer consultants have been involved in hundreds of LIMS and LIS projects worldwide, performing tasks such as assessments, architecture, design, configuration, development, implementation, integration, deployment, maintenance, and support outsourcing. LabAnswer has developed the people, processes, methodologies, and intellectual property to scale for the largest global enterprise deployments.

An Enterprise LIMS Expands Laboratory Workflow Support

An all-purpose enterprise LIMS expands laboratory workflow support capabilities to accommodate many testing paradigms. Gone are the days where organizations need many separate LIMS vendors to accommodate various testing needs. Consider today’s pharmaceutical environment where you have pure research labs, research and development labs, stability labs, environmental monitoring labs, quality testing labs, pre-clinical labs, clinical trial testing labs, and so forth. As the usage of a single LIMS has encompassed multiple laboratories and business units, the complexity of implementations has risen and the need to carefully coordinate implementation activities between all these entities has flourished. LabAnswer understands this dynamic and excels at supporting these environments.

Laboratory informatics is a fast-paced, ever-changing industry requiring that LIMS workers have up-to-date knowledge of changing regulations, technologies, industry trends, and new science such as next generation sequencing, microarray technologies, medical imaging, and nanotechnology. In the past ten years, LIMS applications have evolved well beyond the boundaries of laboratory testing workflows into highly integrated, multi-functional systems that drive broader business workflows and decision making.
