What LIMS?
Qu’est-ce qu’un LIMS ?

There could be different and various definitions of a LIMS. The one we choose is the following: a LIMS is a method a laboratory uses to manage its data, disperse the results to designated areas and manage the resources that are available. It must support the life cycle of data, which includes data collection, storage, analysis, reporting and archiving.

Data can be managed manually or automatically with computer systems. In most laboratories, the LIMS data management capabilities lies somewhere in between, partly manual and partly computerized.
