Oil & Gas Eurasia Magazine : Advantages of LIMS Integration with Corporate Information Systems

E-mail Print

 

One of the most common reasons for companies investing on laboratory information management systems (LIMS) is the ability to integrate laboratory tools and corporate information systems to streamline information management. Despite the fact that this integration is required by many laboratories, in practice this goal is not always successfully achieved. The results of various studies illustrate a certain gap between expectations from integration and reality. This is because of the complexity of interfacing

various software, while the direct integration of LIMS with lab instruments saves precious time, and eliminates the possibility of typing errors in results often present in data entered manually. These benefits are especially illustrative when applying gas chromatographs, which generate a significant portion of laboratory data.

The article discusses the various challenges in integration of LIMS with other operational (production management) and corporate (ERP) systems, and the advantages that the Thermo Sample Manager platform offers through its advanced integration capabilities with the use of Web-services with standardized protocols, allowing LIMS systems access to applications such as Microsoft, Biz Talk and Share Point.
