These acronyms are globally used and have entered in the laboratory vocabulary.
- LIMS: Laboratory Information Management System
- LES: Laboratory Execution System
- ELN: Electronic Laboratory Notebook
- CDS: Chromatography Data Systems
- SDMS: Scientific Data Management System
- DMS: Document Management System
- QMS: Quality management systems
- EBR: Electronic Batch Record
LRMS: Laboratory Resource Management System
We are now proud to add LRMS into the list: Laboratory Resource Management System. With the recent announcement of the new Optima LRMS version 2021.1, new steps for laboratory managers have been made to support their lab activities and efficiency, improve their KPIs and increase customer satisfaction.
The software applications are key assets when looking for a digital transformation of the laboratories processes. Whether the laboratory is dedicated to research, development, or quality control, whether it provides services to internal or external customers, whether the origins of the samples to be analyzed are biological or chemical, the available software solutions today are numerous and quite different from one to another. It is not anymore, a simple search for the so-called LIMS system that will drive the users to their most suitable solution.
When it comes to resource management, Optima is now proposing a solution that has been developed in collaboration with more than 30 laboratories from different industries, with different compliance requirements yet with very same demanding pressures from their company’s business goals and from their customers.
