Welcome to LIMSwiki.org, the laboratory, health, and science informatics encyclopedia.
Users have contributed: 1,558 articles.

LIMSwiki is a collaborative wiki dedicated to the scientific community, featuring organized, documented, and up-to-date content regarding all aspects of laboratory informatics, bioinformatics, and health informatics. LIMSwiki also strives to maintain relevant knowledge about laboratory equipment as well as commercial and open-source software likely to be used in a laboratory setting. This also includes the vendors of such equipment and software.

Like any community wiki, the value and success of LIMSwiki is dependent upon the scientific community contributing their vast knowledge through the creation of relevant articles and editing of existing articles where knowledge is absent. If you wish to enrich the content of this wiki or have something of value to add, please request an account and get started.

"Preferred names, preferred pronouns, and gender identity in the electronic medical record and laboratory information system: Is pathology ready?"

Electronic medical records (EMRs) and laboratory information systems (LISs) commonly utilize patient identifiers such as legal name, sex, medical record number, and date of birth. There have been recommendations from some EMR working groups (e.g., the World Professional Association for Transgender Health) to include preferred name, pronoun preference, assigned sex at birth, and gender identity in the EMR. These practices are currently uncommon in the United States. There has been little published on the potential impact of these changes on pathology and LISs. We review the available literature and guidelines on the use of preferred name and gender identity on pathology, including data on changes in laboratory testing following gender transition treatments. We also describe pathology and clinical laboratory challenges in the implementation of preferred name at our institution. (Full article...)

Key commercial laboratory informatics vendors

What does it mean to be "key" for the purpose of this ranking? The criterion for a vendor selling proprietary commercial laboratory informatics software being listed here: the vendor's LIMSwiki page must have a cited (from a publicly-available source) price list. Those with demonstration videos are given higher preference; items ranked by number of videos. Go here for all listed vendors in the wiki.


Laboratory informatics software and products
Key cloud- or SaaS-based laboratory informatics software

Listed below are key commercial and open-source laboratory informatics software offerings listed in the wiki that utilize the cloud or software as a service (SaaS) model. "Key" indicates vendor's (or software's) LIMSwiki page has a cited (from a publicly-available source) price list. Those with demonstration videos are given higher preference; items ranked by number of videos.

Relatively new to the wiki but previously unannounced is what will eventually become part of a series on the various industries and settings a laboratory can be found: The Laboratories of Our Lives: Labs, Labs Everywhere!. This guide may eventually change names and be integrated with more content. However, for now it acts as a solid introduction to the concept of how laboratories intersect our lives in ways we may not necessarily expect. The guide first sets a historical stage for the development of the laboratory, and it then offers a basic framework for looking at today's laboratories, whether by science, industry, or function. Then it provides a brief snapshot of 20 different sectors, listing lab examples, test types, equipment used, and how informatics may be applied in those laboratories, followed by a brief closing discussion. Hopefully the guide provides a more inspiring picture of how the laboratory intersects nearly every aspect of our lives.

New to the wiki today is the guide Past, Present, and Future of Cannabis Laboratory Testing and Regulation in the United States. This guide provides an in-depth discussion of the ever-changing status of laboratory testing and regulation of the cannabis plant in the United States. From the history, regulations, and standards to the chemical properties of cannabis and the laboratory methods used to define them, this Creative Commons-based work covers the social, political, and economic circumstances surrounding the controversial plant. It also looks at the equipment, software, and reporting of testing labs; provides future-looking trends and guidance both nationally and internationally; and offers a full directory of resources associated with cannabis testing and legislation. Enjoy!
