Introduction

LabLynx enables you to add, edit, and export LIMS master parameter information. Master parameters are the foundation of the ELab system. Any information needing data captured at a test level should be considered a master parameter and listed in the Master Parameters list.

System Administrators use LabLynx ELab to manage several aspects of master parameters:

  • master parameter details
  • PIM master parameters
