History

Mountain States Consulting (MSC) began as a technology consulting firm in 1986.[1] During the summer of 1994 the company was confronted by the data management problems of a local government laboratory. After sorting through several options MSC decided to tackle the problem directly and create a custom data management solution, installing it in April 1995.[2] That LIMS went on to become MSC-LIMS.[1]
