Autoscribe Informatics will be highlighting key developments in its Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) at Lab Innovations 2023.
New and updated features on show will include an improved laboratory execution system (LES), a new subcontracting module, an improved audit reporting function, and federated single sign-on (SSO) functionality.
The Laboratory Execution System (LES) guides laboratory staff through a defined workflow or Standard Operating Procedure to help ensure that the correct preparation and test workflow steps are followed, ensuring the validity of the end results. An unlimited number of workflow steps and highly flexible interface ensures that laboratory processes can be accurately modelled.
The sub-contracting module enables laboratories to easily manage testing by external laboratories. It manages the contractor information, which samples they are shipped, the tests performed on them, and the results of that testing to ensure the chain of custody integrity.
The audit reporting functionality has been updated to enable an instant audit review of each sample. It shows what preparation and testing has been done on each sample, by whom and when, as well as any available test results. If chain of custody actions have been applied to samples, these are also shown , along with all versions of updated test results (together with who updated them, when and the reason for the change). Whilst such this data has always been available, the update makes it simple for view from a single source.
Federated single sign-on functionality allows users to login to the LIMS application using corporate login credentials, simplifying user support for corporate IT teams – something which is increasingly requested to ease integration, particularly in cloud-based IT environments.
Matrix Gemini LIMS is developed using an agile development methodology which allows monthly enhancements to be released to the field. Simon Wood, Product Marketing Manager, said: “Fast, tightly managed development cycles allow us to provide critical new functionality to meet customer needs well within the timescale of a LIMS project.
“The speed of our development cycles differentiates us from other LIMS vendors. Customers have the flexibility to upgrade when they wish, using the built-in upgrade tools which automates the effort. The combination of regular fast releases, strong support and customer focus makes Autoscribe unique in the LIMS industry.”
All the latest Autoscribe news and developments can be seen on Stand K24 at Lab Innovations, NEC Birmingham, on November 1 and 2.
