Ruro, a LIMS and sample management system provider, has announced the release of Limfinity, the engine behind Ruro’s LIMS 24/7 – now available as a stand-alone system that can be used without expert knowledge.

The system allows research and pharmaceutical laboratories to utilise personnel mastery and understanding to achieve automation and compliance, as well as gain a centralised repository for user, system and instrument data, says the company.

'The primary benefits associated with effective LIMS deployment come at potentially prohibitive resource requirements and, at times, can force a lab to abandon the beneficial intricacies of ‘how my lab works’ in order to fit a mold.

'Limfinity is the first information management platform that can leverage what a lab already has,' said Tom Dolan, director of sales.
