Accelerated Technology Laboratories (ATL) has introduced Sample Master LIMS 8.5, its flagship LIMS product, which features a range of user-suggested enhancements.
These suggestions came via ATL Technical Support and a variety of customer forums (ATL User Group, LIMS Boot Camps, training webinars, industry conferences) where ATL discusses LIMS requirements with its clients. In addition, ATL continually monitors the regulatory compliance requirements for core customer segments like environmental, food and beverage, agriculture, public health and biotechnology and changes in these requirements are reflected in this latest update.
