A Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), sometimes referred to as a Laboratory Information System (LIS) or Laboratory Management System (LMS), is a software-based laboratory and information management system with features that support a modern laboratory’s operations. Key features include — but are not limited to — workflow and data tracking support, flexible architecture, and data exchange interfaces, which fully support its use in regulated environments. The features and uses of a LIMS have evolved over the years from simple sample tracking to an enterprise resource planning tool that manages multiple aspects of laboratory informatics.

The definition of a LIMS is somewhat controversial: LIMSs are dynamic because the laboratory’s requirements are rapidly evolving and different labs often have different needs.

LIMS functionality includes sample management. Assay data management, data mining, data analysis, and electronic laboratory notebook (ELN).

Within the LIMS service content, BTS gives first level support and project management assistance at the beginning and the problems are notified to BTS directly.
