LabLynx enables you to add and edit LIMS picklist information. Picklists are also known as "drop-down lists." Through the LIMS picklist screen, you can add drop-down lists and edit the options for each one. You can also remove them from the LIMS Picklist Tables List.

System Administrators use LabLynx ELab to manage LIMS picklist information.
