LabLynx has improved its free LIMSkit resource so that users need only download the software once, receiving any future updates automatically. The new version also includes significant new information, demonstrations, LIMS development tools, career resources and tons of other valuable resource for all stakeholders in the laboratory industry. The LIMSkit is useful to LIMS users, administrators, developers, and LIMS vendors and consultants alike.

LabLynx has compiled a library of online functional demonstrations, information and valuable tools and continues to regularly publish information about both LIMS and all associated tools and applications.

Lab professionals - labs themselves as well as consultants, academics and associated companies providing products and/or services - from all over the world are downloading and using the LIMSkit to gain valuable information about LIMS and laboratory informatics.
