Go paperless, increase efficiency, reduce costs, save time
There are many good reasons to digitize the processes in your laboratory. The linchpin of laboratory digitalization is the software that manages the data with which the staff works and to which the laboratory equipment is connected. In most cases, this requires a LIMS - Laboratory Information Management System. However, other systems, such as an ELN - Electronic Lab Notebook - may also be required or helpful for your digitization strategy, either modularly or stand-alone.
Why LIMS consulting?
In addition to the individual reasons for digitalization, every company has its own laboratory processes and, therefore, a wide variety of requirements for its IT solutions. Selecting the right LIMS product for your specific requirements and digitalization strategy is a challenge and key to your success. On the one hand, the list of software providers is long. On the other hand, the acquisition and implementation of the software are associated with high effort and non-negligible costs. The comparison of providers and the "IT-compatible" gathering of your individual requirements for the laboratory software takes time and requires a lot of know-how.
What we offer you
We, as the ApiThinking GmbH, support you as a competent, authentic, and highly specialized IT consulting company in the challenging LIMS selection process to choose the right LIMS software for your individual laboratory system requirements. Our approach is vendor-neutral and relies on custom-tailored 360° analysis. Our LIMS consulting saves you time, and you can be sure to receive a software solution that is optimal for your needs and for optimizing your laboratory processes.
We have numerous years of experience in laboratory digitalization and LIMS evaluation. We offer you custom-tailored consulting services following a holistic approach. As natural scientists, we speak your language and form the interface to information technology (IT) simultaneously.
We have a well-established network with LIMS manufacturers and know our way around the LIMS market. Our mission is to work with you to evaluate your laboratory IT requirements and find the right LIMS software to improve your daily laboratory routine.
We also stay by your side during the implementation and validation process of the software and ensure that your laboratory digitalization becomes a success story!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
There are numerous LIMS systems (or more correct LIM systems) available in the market, each offering different features and specializations. At ApiThinking, we provide vendor-neutral consultation to help you find the LIMS system best suited to your specific laboratory requirements.
A LIMS should be capable of optimizing laboratory processes, efficiently managing data, monitoring quality, and ensuring compliance with standards such as FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and EU GMP Annex 11. The exact requirements can vary depending on the laboratory and industry. During our consultation, we work with you to develop a detailed list of requirements to find the right LIMS for your needs.
A LIMS digitizes and automates the entire lifecycle of a sample in the lab, from registration to reporting. It consists of modules that cover specific laboratory functions such as sample management, quality control, and equipment integration. These modules work seamlessly together to optimize data processing and management. A modern LIMS integrates with laboratory equipment, ensures data integrity, and ensures compliance with standards like GxP. In conclusion: A LIMS acts almost like an additional team member, significantly easing not only the lab work but also the documentation effort.
The cost of a LIMS can vary based on its range of functions, the number of users, implementation efforts, and other factors. It's essential to consider not just the acquisition costs but also the long-term operational and maintenance costs. We'd be happy to advise you on cost aspects as part of our LIMS consultation.
An LES, or Laboratory Execution System, is an application designed to systematically support and document laboratory activities according to predefined work instructions. It assists laboratories in documenting crucial steps in executing methods at the very moment they are carried out. This ensures that Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are followed, and tasks are performed in a compliant and controlled manner. Essentially, an LES helps laboratory analysts in the correct and standardized execution of laboratory test methods.
Both an LIS (Laboratory Information System) and a LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) are software platforms designed for managing laboratory data. The primary distinction lies in their scope and functionality:
