Welcome to LIMSwiki.org, the laboratory, health, and science informatics encyclopedia.
Users have contributed: 1,585 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.

"Health sciences libraries advancing collaborative clinical research data management in universities"

Medical libraries need to actively review their service models and explore partnerships with other campus entities to provide better-coordinated clinical research management services to faculty and researchers. TRAIL (Translational Research and Information Lab), a five-partner initiative at the University of Washington (UW), explores how best to leverage existing expertise and space to deliver clinical research data management (CRDM) services and emerging technology support to clinical researchers at UW and collaborating institutions in the Pacific Northwest. The initiative offers 14 services and a technology-enhanced innovation lab located in the Health Sciences Library (HSL) to support the University of Washington clinical and research enterprise. Sharing of staff and resources merges library and non-library workflows, better coordinating data and innovation services to clinical researchers. Librarians have adopted new roles in CRDM, such as providing user support and training for UW’s Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) instance. (Full article...)

LAB COURSE IN CHROMATOGRAPHY.jpg
This is just a quick update to advise readers the second edition of the guide Past, Present, and Future of Cannabis Laboratory Testing and Regulation in the United States has now been released. This second edition updates historical information with the latest stories through early December 2018, newest technologies, and revised URLs for vendors. A new chapter has been added that details vendors who are marketing their instruments, software, and equipment to cannabis testing laboratories, and new material has been added in addressing topics such as industrial hemp legalization and worker safety. Enjoy.

Several new useful pieces have been added to the wiki in 2018, with more in the works. First, be sure to check out the webinar series A Guide for Management: Successfully Applying Laboratory Systems to Your Organization's Work by laboratory automation and computing professional Joe Liscouski. The seven-part webinar takes viewers on a journey of laboratory technologies and how they may or may not apply to the work you do. And of course a whole quiver of journal articles have been added in 2018, touching on topics such as big data in healthcare and managing information across a wide variety of scientific contexts. What's coming in 2019? Look forward to updates to several key guides posted here, including more equipment and vendor information for the Past, Present, and Future of Cannabis Laboratory Testing and Regulation in the United States guide, and updated citations and statistics in our other popular guides. Happy wiking!
