A Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is software that allows you to effectively manage samples and associated data. By using a LIMS, your lab can automate workflows, integrate instruments, and manage samples and associated information. Additionally, you can produce reliable results more quickly and can track data from sequencing runs over time and across experiments to improve efficiency.
Modern genomics generates an unprecedented amount of data. Faced with increasing data volumes and sample throughput along with frequent changes in technology, labs must modernize their approach to managing, tracking, and centralizing genomics data.
Although the primary purpose of a LIMS is to track and manage samples, it can do so much more. It can:
BaseSpace Clarity LIMS is designed for genomics labs and optimized for next-generation sequencing (NGS) studies. As a key component in the BaseSpace Informatics Suite, it helps laboratories track samples, and optimize procedures and workflows. Our LIMS solution integrates with Illumina instruments and other mission-critical laboratory tools.View Product
We offer guidance to sequencing labs on selecting a LIMS. These include the key features to look for, and considerations around the types of instruments you’ll need to integrate. Managing and sequencing samples are particularly beneficial in a high-throughput environment due to the efficiency and accuracy a LIMS provides.Learn More
