Grow Your Own LIMS Code

May 5, 2015 9:05 am | by Helen Kelly | Articles | Comments

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...

The Case for User-Friendly Informatics in the Pharmaceutical QA/QC Lab

April 20, 2015 9:32 am | by Trish Meek, Thermo Fisher Scientific | Articles | Comments

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.

Another Brick in the Wall: The Legendary Rescue of a Doomed Project

November 20, 2014 2:08 pm | by Randy C. Hice | Blogs | Comments

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.
