LinkedIn, LLC develops and distributes laboratory informatics software systems, with a strong focus on cloud-based laboratory information management systems.

History was established in July 2013.[1] In roughly December 2014, the product name changed from CloudLIMS to BioTracer.[2] In later 2017 or early 2018, the company dropped the BioTracer name and renamed its sample management software to have name consistency with its LIMS product.

Technology and products

CloudLIMS and FreeLIMS

CloudLIMS Lite (formerly BioTracer) is web-based sample management software "for any laboratory wanting to automate their informatics systems in a secure and reliable environment."[3]

CloudLIMS Standard (formerly BioTracer) is web-based sample management software "designed specifically for laboratories that have complex business processes, multiple users, and require advanced security features."[4]

CloudLIMS Enterprise is a laboratory information management system (LIMS) that focuses on "the operational and regulatory needs of managing laboratory data and processes."[5] It has the same features as the Standard version but also adds study management, request management, and inventory management.[5][6]

The company also offers a scaled-down version of its CloudLIMS, as FreeLIMS. The software is advertised to work for small biobanking, cannabis, clinical, and food and beverage laboratories.[7] The software is limited to two users, one administrator and one user. It comes with "limits on available modules, functionality and on the number of records you are permitted to store in each module."[8]
