LII:LIMS Selection Guide for ISO/IEC 17025 Laboratories/Resources for selecting and implementing informatics solutions

From LIMSWiki
Jump to navigationJump to search
-----Return to the beginning of this guide-----

LIMSwiki provides a useful directory of LIMS vendors serving specific industries. If a vendor clearly indicates what industries they serve on their website, they are categorized under those industries. Otherwise, they are placed under the "General" category. However, "ISO/IEC 17025" isn't considered an industry for purposes of categorization; as we learned in Chapter 2, the testing, calibration, and sampling activities covered by ISO/IEC 17025 occur in a wide variety of industry contexts. As such, using such a directory will require you to examine vendors serving your industry and then investigate further how their LIMS touches all those requirements listed in the previous chapter.

For purposes of this guide, we simply list all known LIMS vendors as a base starting point. This may have little use to you, so you may also wish to consult the previously mentioned categorized directory for further granularity. The LIMS vendors and consultants listed below are directly pulled from LIMSwiki's maintained tabular listings of these types of entities. The professional section addresses trade organizations, conferences, and more. The last section further explores LIMSpec, which has been discussed in prior chapters.

4.1 LIMS vendors

NOTE: This listing represents all known active LIMS vendors. For a categorized listing of LIMS vendors by industry, see the listing of vendors by industry.

4.4 LIMSpec


LIMSpec is an ever-evolving set of software user requirements specifications for laboratory informatics systems, especially the laboratory information management system (LIMS). The specification has grown significantly from its humble origins over a decade ago. Earlier versions of LIMSpec focused on a mix of both regulatory requirements and clients' "wishlist" features for a given system. The wishlist items haven't necessarily been ignored by developers, but they do in fact have to be prioritized by the potential buyer as "nice to have" or "essential to system operation," or something in between.[27][28][29] This latest version is different, focusing strictly on a regulatory-, standards-, and guidance-based approach to building a specification document for laboratory informatics systems.

At its core, LIMSpec is rooted in ASTM E1578-18 Standard Guide for Laboratory Informatics. With the latest version released in 2018, the standard includes an updated Laboratory Informatics Functional Requirements checklist, which "covers functionality common to the various laboratory informatics systems discussed throughout [the] guide as well as requirements recommended as part of [the] guide." It goes on to state that the checklist "is an example of typical requirements that can be used to guide the purchase, upgrade, or development of a laboratory informatics system," though it is certainly "not meant to be exhaustive."

LIMSpec borrows from that requirements checklist and then adds more to it from a wide variety of sources, including ISO/IEC 17025. An attempt has been made to find the most relevant regulations, standards, and guidance that shape how a compliant laboratory informatics system is developed and maintained. However, the LIMSpec should also definitely be considered a continual work in progress, with more to be added as new pertinent regulations, standards, and guidance are discovered.

If you've never worked with a user requirements specification document, the concept remains relatively simple to grasp. Merriam-Webster defines a "specification" as "a detailed precise presentation of something or of a plan or proposal for something."[30] Within this organized "plan or proposal" are requirements. A requirement typically comes in the form of a statement that begins with "the system/user/vendor shall/should ..." and focuses on a provided service, reaction to input, or expected behavior in a given situation. The statement may be abstract (high-level), or it may be specific and detailed to a precise function. The statement may also be of a functional nature, describing functionality or services in detail, or of a non-functional nature, describing the constraints of a given functionality or service and how it's rendered.

An example of a functional software requirement could be "the user shall be able to query either all of the initial set of databases or select a subset from it." This statement describes specific functionality the system should have. On the other hand, a non-functional requirement, for example, may state "the system's query tool shall conform to the ABC 123-2014 standard." The statement describes a constraint placed upon the system's query functionality. Once compiled, a set of requirements can serve not only to strengthen the software requirements specification, but the requirements set can also be used for bidding on a contract or serve as the basis for a specific contract that is being finalized.[31]

Section 3.1.2 of Chapter 3 took those specific LIMSpec requirements linked to ISO/IEC 17025 and presented them as a means to demonstrate the critical functionality a LIMS should have in order for a laboratory to more easily comply with the standard. However, there's more to LIMSpec than just those requirements. The requirements span multiple areas of laboratory workflow and practice, from the core functions of a lab to its ancillary operations, specialty functions, technology and performance touch points, and data and security touch points. As of December 2022, LIMSpec is based off more than 130 regulations, standards, guidance documents, and more, proving to be a robust starting point for labs seeking to use a requirements specification to acquire a LIMS.

The next chapter discusses the user requirements specification, using LIMSpec as an example. You'll learn how to shape such a specification to your laboratory's needs, how to issue the specification as a request for information (RFI), and how to get the most out of it when getting decision-related information from vendors.
