A Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is computer software that is used in the laboratory for the management of samples, laboratory users, instruments, standards and other laboratory functions such as invoicing, plate management, and work flow automation. A LIMS and a Laboratory Information System (LIS) perform similar functions. The primary difference is that LIMS are generally targeted toward environmental, research or commercial analysis, such as pharmaceutical or petrochemical, and LIS are targeted toward the clinical market (hospitals and other clinical labs).

Impact of biotechnologies on LIMS

Biotechnologies have introduced a number of changes in the Life Science field. High Throughput spread from the limited field of drug candidate screening to gene screening, protein screening, etc. This make LIMS a new necessity, even in fundamental laboratories.

In the case of a lab that carries out many different tests for multiple customers - a sample-centric approach is preferable because the sample type can drive the process configuration. If a lab carries out a single test at high throughput testing - a process-centric approach should be used in order to optimize the workflow.
