A lack of perspective can rain problems on a major, multi-site LIMS project Randy C. Hice Twice this year, we heard from huge companies in the midst of "global" LIMS initiatives, and suddenly woke up to realize that buzzards were circling, and there was no plan in site to move forward. It seemed like a good idea, the project planning people thought. But, in fact, they had never actually implemented LIMS at more than one site before.
You don't have to be a programmer to be able to find uses for this program John R. Joyce, Ph.D. Anyone who has really worked with Unix knows what grep is. For those who haven't had the privilege, grep is a utility that allows you to search and manipulate files, both text and binary.
Jerry Fireman, President, Structured Information PerkinElmer's LABWORKS LIMS is used in a wide variety of industries. Although the following case study is not pharma specific, the users involved encounter many of the same challenges.
