The days when biopharmaceuticals, clinical diagnostic labs, manufacturing laboratories—and healthcare in general— prioritised paperwork to conduct research are fast disappearing. As part of the digital revolution, today’s labs are implementing Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) that allow researchers to automate tasks, data inputs and management, and reduce errors. In fact, online-based LIMS are slowly becoming mainstream due to their ability to enable hassle-free and easy access to data anytime and anywhere from different locations, multiple branches, and various systems with a secure login ID. With online-based LIMS, there is no license cost, just a minimal installation fee, and no need for any databanks or in-house servers, no IT maintenance costs for software or hardware. Businesses can pay for only the functionalities they need.
Besides, technologies like mobile LIMS are enabling greater mobility within the lab and beyond. Researchers can now access standard features, like mobile-LES, to follow external SOPs and enjoy greater connectivity without compromising the quality of research. What’s more? Given LIMS’ ability to enhance data management by automating data transfers from devices to the system, labs are now looking to further expand this connectivity. With solutions like LIMS and AR/MR interfaces, biopharmaceutical organisations can ensure wider connectivity. This extends across people, instruments, and software systems to create a complete ecosystem, enabling scientists to drive innovation and operational excellence. Multiple teams can even work across different departments on a shared project, resulting in reduced time-to-market of new discoveries.
As a multitude of these trends is set to nurture the pharmaceutical industry’s growth, Pharma Tech Outlook has compiled a list of leading LIMS solution providers that are at the top of their game. The enlisted organisations are transforming last-mile delivery at the convergence of several disruptive technologies. Besides, the magazine also comprises insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for aspiring CIOs.
