Technology and products

LIMSsolution and LabSolutions

LIMSsolution is a laboratory information management system (LIMS) that has been optimized to be "directly linked to analytical and measuring instruments."[2][3] (The product may not be available in all markets; it was removed from the main Shimadzu page in 2016 or '17 but is still found on the Australasia and Japan sites.)

LabSolutions is a suite of chromatography data systems (CDS) that "features an innovative operating environment and provides complete data management to ensure secure information in networked laboratories."[4] The three LabSolutions CDS solutions are:

LabSolutions LC/GC: "[E]nables simultaneous control and analysis of LC/GC systems and data for a more user-friendly environment"; optimal for labs with only a few users and instruments.[5]

LabSolutions DB: "[I]ntegrates a data management function with LabSolutions LC/GC and is compliant with the ER/ES Regulations"; optimal for labs with only a few instruments and no networking needs.[5]

LabSolutions CS: "[C]an read data from any personal computer on a network"; "analysis directions and instrument monitoring and control can be performed from a personal computer (client PC) not connected to the instruments"; optimal for large labs with many instruments and networking needs.[5]

A feature comparison of the versions can be found in the Shimadzu brochure.
