Top 10 LIMS Companies - 2019

Just like any other institution with a pre-decided work system, laboratories too have goals to meet and data to handle. The samples come and go in bulk and keeping record of those is not as easy and effortless as it might seem. Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) has made this task a lot easier over the period of time and is still in the process of innovating itself by adding new technological advancements.

Recently, many have come to believe that automation is rapidly becoming the key to unlocking the future of laboratories and pathology. With the intervention of smartphones, automation in pathology labs has fallen as an easy access in the hands of many and its use has become a prevalent trend. The LIMS based solutions providers by coupling them together have made database management in labs a robust and agile procedure. Especially, the process of sample collection from multiple centers has been simplified through bar code generation which can be scanned through mobile phone of the assistant. Moreover, when applied during experiments, automated solutions are providing results with fewer errors at a cheaper price. Major market dominating brands are also deploying AI for automating daily tasks of recording and data entry which is redundant in nature. This has fastened the healthcare all together as larger samples can be processed per unit of time, and hence the reports are produced faster with less human effort.

Apart from this, there has been a gradual shift from the home-grown management system to a completely off-the-shelf LIMS. These systems have shown commendable maturity, reliability, and flexibility in data management helping pathologists to focus on other core competencies like analytical testing, and hence bagging a larger customer base. The workflow in the lab management sector has become even more streamlined recently with the arrival of cloud-based storage system as well. Market is witnessing an increased demand for cloud-storage in comparison to on-prem storage because it needs lower capital investment, reduced operational cost, and scalability.

In the close similarity to all the industries, LIMS space too is filing up with these technologies and in wake of these trends that are shaping the realm, a distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, analysts, and the Pharma Tech Outlook’s editorial board has reviewed the top solution providers in the domain of LIMS.

 We are glad to feature Xybion in this edition of Pharma Tech Outlook. Headquartered in Lawrenceville, NJ, the company is offering novel, purpose built cloud-based management solution that includes traditional LIMS, ELN, QMS, DMS, Data Management, and Analytics.

It can be challenging for lab-setups in a highly regulated life sciences industry to embrace cloud-based workflows and enjoy its multi-faceted benefits while being compliant with the local and international regulatory requirements. Traditional Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) and Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELN) systems lack the flexibility to adapt to the constant business changes through frequent upgrades or customizations. Xybion addresses four key challenges that had always hindered labs from going digital and paperless in a holistic and compliant manner—data integrity, massive expenditure, customizability, and data management
