Technology and products

OnLIMS and Online Worksheet

OnLIMS is a modular laboratory information management system (LIMS) for the mining industry that "specializes in geochemical solutions and was carefully designed to cleanly store samples generated in a small or large mining plant."[5] Primary modules include Online Worksheet (an electronic laboratory notebook or ELN), OnLQC for quality control, OnLab for laboratory management, and LabData for client management.[5]

Online Worksheet is an electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) module of OnLIMS that is "designed to integrate the laboratory at the bench level and to standardize all analytical techniques."[6] It's not clear if the ELN can function as stand-alone software.
