Matrix Gemini v6.5 introduces LIMS web application
Autoscribe Informatics, a provider of configurable Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), has announced the release of Matrix Gemini version 6.5.
In a major upgrade to the underlying technology, Autoscribe has introduced a new web browser application for Matrix Gemini known simply as the New Matrix Gemini Web application. By adopting the latest technologies and standards, Autoscribe ensures that Matrix Gemini meets, and will continue to meet, the changing requirements of a modern laboratory informatics solution.
The LIMS workflow, screens, menus, lists and all other configurable options are available for the New Web application in the same way as the existing Desktop and Web applications. Configurations are created and modified using the built-in Matrix Configuration Tools and, after approval, are instantly available to the users in all three applications.
The underlying software is untouched by configuration, with configuration details held in a separate database. All configuration changes are recorded in an audit trail and released in a controlled way. Since a complete history of changes is always available, users can revert to any previous version of any screen or workflow should the need arise. This functionality is unique in the world of LIMS. It ensures laboratories have a complete history of all configuration changes in much the same way as they have a complete history of all the samples and sample data that goes through the LIMS.
Customers upgrading from a previous version of Matrix Gemini will automatically be able to take advantage of the New Web application, exactly as they accessed their Desktop and Web configurations in previous releases.
The New Web application is available as a beta release in v6.5. Current customers are encouraged to load both the Web and New Web applications side-by-side and fully test their LIMS configuration using typical test cases to ensure expected functionality.
