Laboratory informatics is the specialized application of information through a platform of instruments, software, and data management tools that allow scientific data to be captured, migrated, processed, and interpreted for immediate use, as well as stored and managed to support future product development while maximizing laboratory operations.
Sub-topics in Laboratory Informatics
Laboratory informatics is often modeled as a central component or hub for other branching elements of the field. However, looking at the architecture in this fashion oversimplifies the field of laboratory informatics and risks giving the false appearance that branched elements of the field have greater importance than others. Instead, a multi-layered, non-hierarchical model of these elements that places an emphasis on an individual laboratory's identified business needs may be more appropriate. Important elements of laboratory informatics include but are not limited to:
- Chromatography data management system (CDMS)
- Electronic laboratory notebook (ELN)
- Laboratory information management system (LIMS)
- Process analytical technology (PAT)
- Scientific data management system (SDMS)
