Technology and products


SLims is a modular, browser-based laboratory information management system (LIMS) "providing LIMS + ELN + order management features."[3] The software is particularly marketed towards next generation sequencing (NGS), diagnostic, and research and development laboratories as well as biobanks. The key components of the LIMS include sample management for managing the logistics of experiments, a configurable electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) for recording experiment data, and order entry tools for internal and external management of customers and quality control.[3]
