Configurable LIMS Highlighted at Paperless Lab Academy 2023
11 Apr 2023
The latest version of Matrix Gemini LIMS from Autoscribe Informatics will be on show at the Paperless Lab Academy at Lake Maggiore, Italy, on 19-20 April 2023.
Now in its tenth year, The Paperless Lab Academy highlights and discusses the latest digital data management ideas for laboratories. It is the perfect place for those wanting to learn more about Laboratory Information Management Systems to compare solutions and learn about the latest trends.
Every customer of the Matrix Gemini LIMS uses the same software for their system. Personalised set-up is performed using the built-in Matrix Tools which keeps all configuration separate from the core software. The configuration tools are graphically based, so no software (C#, Java etc.) coding skills are required to make changes. Simplicity of use means the look and functionality of all screens in the workflow can be adapted to suit the exact needs of every laboratory in any industry.
The ability to adapt each screen to the exact needs of each laboratory ensures that the LIMS uses terminology relevant to users, and that the workflow mirrors their working practices. Training is available for companies that want to do their own configuration with all changes fully supported – whether whether done by the customer or Autoscribe.
Individual screens can be sent to Autoscribe for further investigation should an issue arise and, because underlying software is never changed by configuration, installing a new version of Matrix Gemini does not require merging of the configuration with the updated system.
Specific configurations exist for key industries including Contract Labs, Biobanks, Water/Environmental, Food/Drink, Pharmaceutical, Manufacturing and Veterinary labs – with additional changes possible to meet the exact requirements of specific users. Matrix Gemini can be extended to support full ISO 17025 compliancy with the addition of extra modules such as instrument calibration and maintenance and staff competency management, as the needs of the laboratory grow. Matrix Express LIMS, an out of the box solution for smaller laboratories, is also available.
“Configurable LIMS solutions are an ideal theme to highlight at the Paperless Lab Academy because they are the key to adapting to changing needs. For example, a data analytics package can be added to sift, analyse, and present critical statistics held within the LIMS,” said Tim Daniels, Marketing Manager. “Since the purchase of a LIMS is a long-term investment, ongoing adaptability and the ability to adopt new technology over its long lifetime is critical in the fast-changing world in which we live.”
