Advancements in technology have transformed how people execute various tasks in modern labs. In the recent past, conventional labs have been transformed into modern centers of excellence thanks to the laboratory information management system (LIMS). LIMS facilitates a lab’s efficiency and accuracy of results.
Here are five advantages of LIMS systems that have influenced the transition from human laboratories into automated centers that guarantee delivery of accurate results.
Collecting and transferring samples manually is a time-consuming process. With the automation, these procedures can be executed much faster without wasting time and resources, unnecessarily. In essence, the sample tracking modules of the LIMS system has made the process as simple as scanning a barcode. Lab technicians can complete processes just by making a few clicks on their mobile devices such as laptops and tablets.
The inventory module in a LIMS system can automate purchases by processing expiration alerts and predictive reordering. Therefore, a lab with a LIMS system will never run out of stock due to controls pilferages. Meaning, the center will not turn away clients due to lack of inventory.
Elimination of human slip-ups
A LIMS system has the power of automating data and executing tasks on a single platform. This has eliminated chances of human errors and wasting of time that is often associated with manual efforts. The LIMS systems have enabled labs to do what they couldn’t have done quickly in the past.
Eliminates stress and workload
An efficient LIMS system is the backbone of operations in a modern lab. Managers and lab owners can get ample time to focus on the core aspects of running a business as the system automates various tasks and processes. For instance, the LIMS system can automate the process of approving and generating reports that could have taken pathologists and doctors several hours to process. Once you implement the LIMS system, you can reduce workload and probably focus on critical reports or lab reports with abnormal figures.
The LIMS system is equipped with swift Management Information Systems that process and make operational, inventory and financial reports available in different formats. In fact, real-time tracking of processes makes decisions making easier and more informed. Lab owners can quickly analyze trends, data and make accurate projections in lesser time. All that combined increases the overall productivity and Return On Investment (ROI) of a laboratory.
The LIMS system provides your lab technicians with greater control, which is a necessity in any modern lab center. Also, it is convenient for multi-center and multi-city operations.
