Technology and products

Matrix LIMS product line

Matrix Gemini is a configurable laboratory information management system (LIMS) solution that helps laboratories "to accurately manage large volumes of data to strict standards, while at the same time constantly evolve to improve efficiency, automation and turn-around times."[8] One of the main features of this software is a set of configuration tools designed to add greater flexibility to security and workflow applications.[9] The configuration tools are graphical, requiring no software programming or scripting knowledge to use them, making them extremely user friendly. The word "Gemini" refers to the dual user interface of desktop or web browser. Any changes in configuration are instantly reflected in both interfaces.[10]

Matrix Express is a slimmer version of Matrix Gemini, one "for smaller laboratories or as an introductory LIMS in larger organizations."[11]

Matrix Tracker is a tracking application that "allow[s] you to setup and modify the workflows, screens and menus to meet detailed requirements."[12]

Matrix Study Management is software that acts as "a stability management system for complete control of stability studies for a variety of industries"[13] and features the ability to manage stability storage room operations, inventory, audit trail generation, and protocol design and approval.
