A LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) is a comprehensive software solution designed to streamline and automate core laboratory operations. It manages the complete lifecycle of samples, automates workflows adhering to protocols, provides a centralized data repository integrating with lab instruments, captures test specifications and requirements, generates reports and analytics for compliance and decision-making, and offers real-time visibility through dashboards and status boards. While specific features vary across providers, a LIMS enhances efficiency, data integrity, traceability, and regulatory compliance for laboratories by carefully aligning the chosen solution with the unique requirements of the laboratory environment.
