Californian water district chooses LIMS solution

A Californian water district has chosen the Sample Master Pro LIMS system from Accelerated Technology Laboratories (ATL) to manage sample analysis.

The North Marin Water District, which serves a population of 56,000 from in and around the city of Novato, chose the LIMS package for its flexibility in data entry and reporting. Attractive features included the ability to print bar-coded labels, and a built-in export to the California Department of Health Services.

The water district had previously used paper logbooks supplemented with Microsoft Excel and Word. However, an increase in data made it increasingly difficult to manually manage the many sample collection sites.

The LIMS package is easily integrated into other enterprise software packages used by the water district. It will also allow limits to be placed on when data can be entered and changed, and provides a meaningful interpretation of multi-variable data.

In addition to implementing the system, ATL will provide help with instrument integration, and provide training and support to the end user.
