Welcome to LIMSwiki.org, the laboratory, health, and science informatics encyclopedia.
Users have contributed: 1,692 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.

"Quality management system implementation in human and animal laboratories"

The ability to rapidly detect emerging and re-emerging threats relies on a strong network of laboratories providing high-quality testing services. Improving laboratory quality management systems (QMS) to ensure that these laboratories effectively play their critical role using a tailored stepwise approach can assist them to comply with World Health Organization's (WHO) International Health Regulations (IHRs), as well as the World Organization for Animal Health's (OIE) guidelines. Fifteen (15) laboratories in Armenia's human and veterinary laboratory networks were enrolled into a QMS strengthening program from 2017 to 2020. Training was provided for key staff, resulting in an implementation plan developed to address gaps. Routine mentorship visits were conducted. Audits were undertaken at baseline and post-implementation using standardized checklists to assess laboratory improvements ... (Full article...)

Open-access articles becoming more common

A LIMSwiki journal article is a selected open-access article relating to various fields of informatics, free to republish elsewhere with proper citation. You can browse the collection using the tools below. Also note that like other articles found on this wiki, journal articles can be added to LIMSwiki books.

For a full listing of journals — open-access and otherwise — relating to laboratory informatics, bioinformatics, and other forms of informatics, please see LIMSWiki:Resources/Journals.

We've created several resources for users of the wiki over the years, including the LIMSwiki informatics resource portal, which contains among other tools:

  1. Magazines, journals, and blogs
  2. Organizations, not-for-profits, and special interest groups
  3. Conferences and trade shows
  4. Consultants
  5. Knowledge base, research, and reference
  6. Educational programs, training, and certifications

Nuclear Forensics (02813659) (14418094348).jpg
More refreshed and new content has made its way here this June. First, having not been updated in quite some time, it was time to review and refresh The Comprehensive Guide to Physician Office Laboratory Setup and Operation. This second edition updates numerous statistics and reference material, adds new findings related to POLs, and reorganizes the structure to be more consistent with current LIMSwiki guides. Trends concerning reimbursement for tests, molecular testing, pharmacy labs, and more were added to the guide, as was more up-to-date information about return on investment, data management practices, and quality assurance. Second, we're dipping our toes into a new initiative called "LIMS FAQ," which intends to, in a brief technical format, address important questions that can be asked about laboratory information management systems (LIMS) and similar software systems. The first LIMS FAQ article, What are the key elements of a LIMS for forensics and medical examiners?, is live on the wiki. It's not clear how often these will be created, but you can always poke your nose in here from time to time to see what's new. Happy reading!

Specification Types.jpg
It was time to put a refresh to LIMSwiki's laboratory informatics specification LIMSpec 2019 R1, and today we release that update as LIMSpec 2022 R1. The update adds almost 30 new regulations, standards, and other guidance, and it updates or replaces another 11. Examples of significant additions include CLSI QMS22 Management of Paper-based and Electronic Laboratory Information, ACMG Technical Standards for Clinical Genetics Laboratories, and WADA International Standard for Laboratories. Some verbiage on existing requirements was also slightly tweaked where necessary. Like the previous version, the spec remains firmly grounded in ASTM E1578-18 Standard Guide for Laboratory Informatics. Hope you find the specification useful in your laboratory informatics acquisition and implementation efforts.
