Welcome!

The community portal is a place to track the initiatives and development process of LIMSwiki. If you're new to the wiki and need help, please consult the "Get started" section of the home page.


Community information center

LIMSwiki is a collaborative wiki dedicated to the scientific community, featuring organized, documented, and up-to-date content regarding all aspects of laboratory informatics, bioinformatics, and health informatics. LIMSwiki also strives to maintain relevant knowledge about laboratory equipment as well as commercial and open-source software likely to be used in a laboratory setting. This also includes the vendors of such equipment and software.

The development and curation of LIMSwiki has closely followed this definition since its inception in early 2011. Yet given limited contributors and a rapidly changing technology atmosphere, it's been difficult to keep up with and produce content relevant to the industry. Despite these challenges, LIMSwiki remains an ambitious project dedicated to collating useful information about the growing industry and its players.

What follows is the list of recently completed, unfinished, scheduled, and planned initiatives to broaden the relevant scope of the wiki. The content within this portal will expand as more contributions are made and more help is requested for new and current initiatives.

LIMSwiki initiatives

We're now using a public mind map to show our initiatives, projects, tasks, and maintenance items. You can view this mind map here. You can find the LIMSwiki-related material under Open Member Community > Content Development > Open Access Content > LiMSwiki.

Food Safety 1.svg
First, happy 2023 to you all! With a new year comes a new guide for LIMSwiki, keying in on some of that food and beverage content described in December 2022. Just released is the LIMS Selection Guide for Food Safety and Quality. Similar in vein to the Laboratory Informatics Buyer's Guide for Medical Diagnostics and Research released this time last year, this new guide recognizes the important role the food and beverage laboratory plays in our society towards food and beverage safety and quality, as well as the increasing need for systems like the laboratory information management system (LIMS) to enhance the lab's safety and quality efforts. The guide examines what these labs do, what standards and regulations affect them, and the traits the lab's LIMS should have to best improve the lab's activities. It also provides helpful information about food and beverage LIMS acquisition, including a LIMS requirements specification and information on how to best put it to use. Hope you find it useful.

The fall of 2022 has seen new LIMSwiki content in the form of both more LIMS FAQ articles (mentioned in late June news) and revisions to LIMSpec, all with a focus on the food and beverage industry. A series of four LIMS FAQ articles concerning various aspects of food and beverage laboratories have been released, again each article focusing on one primary question related to the industry. In a corresponding move, nearly 30 food and beverage standards and regulations have been integrated into LIMSpec, now updated to revision two (R2) for 2022. With these updates, those in the industry will hopefully feel at least a tiny bit more represented on the wiki. Happy reading!
