Fink & Partner GmbH develops and distributes laboratory and scientific informatics software solutions. They also provide consulting services.

History

The company was founded in 1992.[1] In early 2019, the company announced its new [FP]-LIMS, a laboratory information management system (LIMS) built on its prior [Dia] modular database solution.[2]

Prior technology

[Dia] was a modular database solution for laboratories, very similar to a scientific data management system (SDMS). It was designed "for the use in laboratories for production, quality conformation, research and development in environmental analysis. It is not specialised on one specific branch."[3]
