The course is targeted for laboratory managers, chemists and biologists from all industries but will also be of interest to IT personnel.
Modern laboratories utilize a variety of software solutions to deliver analytical results to their internal and external customers. Most analytical instruments have supporting software associated with them. In addition, laboratory automation tools like LIMS, electronic notebooks (ELN) or scientific data management systems (SDMS) have been available for many years, yet few laboratories have an organized plan or strategy to ensure that these tools are properly implemented and/or integrated with one another. As a result, laboratories do not gain the efficiency, productivity, quality and cost benefits that they should.
Many LIMS are not properly implemented and often instruments are not integrated. This course is designed to provide participants with a technical understanding of LIMS and ELN products, how to justify them, and how to implement in a cost effective manner. Tools will be provided to help participants evaluate solutions or approaches in their own laboratories. Pitfalls and success stories from real world case studies will be discussed.
Participants will be encouraged to share their experiences and current challenges in a workshop format and the key aspects of successful projects will be discussed.
