In case you haven’t caught them yet, here's a recap of this week's most popular stories. Looking at the universe as a hologram; diesel fuel from carbon dioxide and water; first observations of a rare subatomic process; a big data history of music charts; secrets of colossal, invisible waves; perceptions of dress colors; and more are among the top hits.
The real benefit of laboratory information management systems (LIMS) is difficult to calculate....
Scientific Computing periodically features special informatics focus articles that...
Today's LIMS allow research institutions to monitor and manage a broad array of biomedical...
These days, using a LIMS seems to feature in every scientist's life, and for some small and medium-size labs, open source code is the way forward with a LIMS. In fact, businesses have grown up around helping labs implement open source LIMS and learn to make modifications in house. A bridge too far for a nonprofessional? Not according to Greg Wilson, who believes that most scientists can easily learn enough to slip into coding...
All the computing power in the world isn’t useful if the software designed to access it is poorly designed. And we’re all much more discerning about user interfaces and usability: we expect our laboratory software to behave as intuitively as our smartphones. After all, laboratory employees are unlikely to be preoccupied with lines of codes and processors — they’re focused more on how easy the software is to use.
SLIM (Stability Lab Information Manager) is a fully validated LIMS designed for complete management of drug stability programs — from the design of stability study protocols to statistical analyses and presentation of final data for regulatory, e.g., FDA, submission.

It is an adaptable and functionally complete LIMS system scalable to suit every size organization, from single-site, single-user to global organizations with 1000s of users.
Matrix Gemini Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) features enhanced cross sample testing capabilities. Cross sample calculations provide the ability to utilize one set of results in the calculation of another set of results. Examples include blank correction, drift and spike correction.
Despite the fact that industries won’t change working processes unless there is a mandatory need to do so, major milestones are expected in 2015 in the battle to adopt data and standardization in our scientific community. The need for deployment of these integration standards to enable efficient sharing of knowledge across our internal and external partners is re-enforced by regulatory bodies.
ONET networking software is for the setup, administration and control of large FT-NIR spectrometer networks. It is a server application accessed via a browser-based Web interface (WebUI), allowing users to set up, administrate and control a network of FT-NIR instruments from a central remote location anywhere in the world.
Of course, I remember the Berlin Wall being pummeled to gravel 25 years ago. I always hated what it symbolized, and I was excited. I was in Fayetteville, AR, at the finest hotel in town (a multi-story Holiday Inn at the time) when I saw the Germans storming the wall and whack-a-mole-ing the wall with ballpeen hammers. How I came to be in Arkansas is a rather remarkable and foreboding story.
LabVantage 7 is available in a number of different LIMS editions, including Enterprise, Express, Pharma, Biobanking and Quality. It provides users the ability to access laboratory data from any device using Web browsers, and features a built-in search engine, making it possible to find data as easily as on the Web.
The 2015 Bio-IT World Conference & Expo plans to unite 3,000+ life sciences, pharmaceutical, clinical, healthcare, and IT professionals from 32+ countries. The Expo provides the perfect venue to share information and discuss enabling technologies that are driving biomedical research and the drug development process.
Qualoupe LIMS 1.3 has a suite of over 30 applications that can be assigned to different roles within the laboratory so that users only have access to the applications they need to fulfil their role. All work within the system is based on management of samples and their associated details and action items.
The PrecisionMDx (PMDx) System is designed for molecular laboratories. It supports molecular diagnostic requirements of entrepreneurial molecular test development companies and the institutional services of molecular pathology departments in community, private and academic medical centers.

Smartphones are an important part of our everyday life, a trend that holds true for laboratories as well. In countless industries, features and applications on mobile devices allow staff working outside of the lab to easily and more accurately capture new types of data from remote locations. But without proper technology, working remotely also poses unique challenges.
Welcome to Informatics Snapshot — a feature that highlights the standout properties of the current crop of laboratory informatics systems. While not intended to be a full formal review of the featured product or to indicate whether the product is considered “good” or “bad,” its purpose is to present some of the “diamonds and rust,” as the Joan Baez song goes. In this article, we’ll take a brief look at the LabX system
