The collection and handling of day-to-day testing data are essential functions in laboratory settings. But that data is usually focused on specific cases, so it typically resides in a laboratory information management system (LIMS). Too often, information stored in a LIMS is disconnected from the organization’s other essential data and related processes. A reliable software platform with robust integration capabilities enables an organization to connect and synchronize data maintained in LIMS with the rest of its clinical trial, quality, audit and similarly critical information.
Companies around the world integrate critical business systems like LIMS with MasterControl process management solutions. Learn how MasterControl's platform connects data with people and processes.
A LIMS is a software solution used to manage laboratory test samples and their associated data. More than just a system for tracking tests, modern LIMS solutions also streamline and standardize lab operations like reporting and workflows. In addition, advanced LIMS solutions maintain sample records and simplify the handling of customer services, invoices and other types of records.
Laboratory testing data doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Its true value lies in how it relates to other associated processes and data sources, such as clinical trials, audits and compliance activities. But that data is usually stored in separate quality management or similar systems. It’s impossible to access accurate, up-to-date information on an enterprise level when critical systems are disconnected.
Keeping data consistent between critical systems shouldn’t be an ongoing concern. A solution that integrates your LIMS with other essential systems ensures a single source of truth for current data.
Compliance is contingent on dependable data. Information that is reliably updated and scalable across systems ensures the efficient execution of the compliance processes that depend on it.
Reliable LIMS integrations give you control over critical systems and the data that flows between them. Errors that inevitably occur in manual data transfers become a thing of the past.
Up-to-date data has greater value to authorized users who can access it from a centralized repository whenever it’s needed. A dependable LIMS integration sustains data integrity and accessibility.
