Biotech company turns to LIMS
Biotech company Trenzyme is using a LIMS solution, which allows for systematic data management by filing of R&D data and analytic data within one system.
In many cases, R&D teams prefer to use ELNs, while analytic departments prefer sample-based LIMS. AAC Infotray, using its Limsophy technology, has developed a software concept that grants easy data accessibility across departments, including the management and supply chain.
RALIMS (Research and Laboratory Information Management System) allows for systematic data management by filing of R&D data and analytic data within one system. The data can be saved both in a sample-based structured way (for the analytics) and in an project-based unstructured way (R&D). The data can be accessed via both a full-text search and database query.
At the push of a button, the RALIMS report builder generates a versatile report, which comprises of all relevant data of a given project. This can include documents such as SOPs, the development steps and furthermore, analytical results where desired.
The biotech service provider Trenzyme, located in Constance, Germany, uses Limsophy RALIMS throughout its entire business processes. The Limsophy RALIMS handles the address administration with contact history, bid proposal management, project management with cost monitoring, order processing management, SOP-based documentation, sample handling, reporting, entry of services rendered, invoicing and transfer of the accounting records to the financial accounts department.
The main workflows are supported by a variety of modules such as strain and culture maintenance (including storage documentation), supply administration with lot control and many more. The Limsophy RALIMS import gateway enables the data import of laboratory equipment, though results can be entered manually, too.
