PRESS RELEASE

Matrix Gemini LIMS

The ‘OneTime configuration tools’ provided with Autoscribes’ Matrix Gemini Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), not only allows the system to be configured without the use of custom programming, but also provides an audit trail each time a display screen for the system is updated or modified.  If a screen is being altered, no one else can modify it until it goes live again. Each version is saved with a version number so the audit trail allows the possibility of returning to an earlier version if required.

A visual workflow screen editor shows the screen in edit mode along with the options and control properties associated with that screen. Screens can be linked together and information transferred between them without any programming. New screens can be created by copying and modifying existing screens from the screen library.

The screen and menu files can be e-mailed between the user and the Matrix support group at Autoscribe, if required, allowing experts to review any proposed changes and provide advice on the implementation. Proposed changes can be developed in a training/development database and once approved can be copied into the live database for immediate use.

More screen technology is available within Matrix Gemini with its ability to migrate existing LIMS desktop applications, developed in previous versions of Matrix, to become web enabled. This ensures that any screen that has been configured for use on the desktop is immediately available, with appropriate security, to a user running a web browser, without the need for programming, java or esoteric scripting languages. 

Matrix Gemini is a pure Microsoft.NET/C# product and not a mixture of other technologies. It provides the benefits of close integration between the Windows operating system and web technology so that just a single configuration is needed for both desktop and web use with no further modification, effort or cost.
