Laboratory informatics solutions are as unique as the laboratories that depend on them, coming in many "flavors." Sorting through this great variety of systems can be a daunting task. Add in the fact that many laboratories don't have the personnel who understand every nuance of laboratory informatics and the laboratory information management system (LIMS) or laboratory information system (LIS) they require, and it quickly becomes obvious that finding the ideal LIMS is no simple task.

This annually updated guide provides a comprehensive and informative body of knowledge as it relates to the laboratory and implementing informatics solutions within it. From the software, hardware, and data management side of laboratory informatics to considerations towards security, acquisition, and implementation of the ideal solution, the reader is provided with a wealth of knowledge to better guide their LIMS and laboratory informatics decisions.
