Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS)

  1. 1. LIMS IE 618: Engineering Cost and Production Economics Instructor: Randy Reagan Date: February 18, 2009 Performed by: Dian Jiang & Mariam Israiel
  2. 2. <ul><li>Business logistics costs $1,183 billion (9.5% of gross domestic product) in the United States in 2005. </li></ul><ul><li>In 2006, the cost of business logistics rose 11% over from the previous year to a record $1.305 billion. </li></ul><ul><li>American businesses spent a record of $1.4 trillion on logistics in 2007. </li></ul>Proposal: Why LIMS
  3. 3. <ul><li>Laboratory Information Management System </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Management of samples, laboratory users, instruments, standards, invoicing and work flow automation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>LIMS Focuses </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pharmaceutical </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bio-technology </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Food and Life Sciences </li></ul></ul>LIMS
  4. 4. LIMS database applications that are used to store & manage information associated with the laboratory. They contain information such as: • Customers • Tests & test results • Collection sites • Bottle types • Preservatives • Sample matrix • Analysis Methods • Parameters • Employees • control limits • Passwords LIMS also includes: • Sample Tracking • Integrated Bar-coding • Sophisticated Query Searching • Integrated QA/QC Functions • Instrument Integration • Full Audit Trail • Powerful Reporting Functionality • Enterprise System Integration Laboratory Information Management Systems Cont’
  5. 5. <ul><li>The following are a few of the Overall LIMS Advantages that the wastewater facility can realize: </li></ul><ul><li>Very fast report access & queries </li></ul><ul><li>Reduction in paperwork </li></ul><ul><li>Improved data quality (reduction in errors) </li></ul><ul><li>Improved operational efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Simple to use Excel-like formulas </li></ul><ul><li>Increased productivity (reduction of routine tasks) </li></ul><ul><li>Productivity gains (instrument interfacing and auto-reporting) </li></ul><ul><li>Integration with other departments/business systems </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces transcription errors </li></ul><ul><li>Increases throughput </li></ul><ul><li>Avoids duplication  </li></ul><ul><li>ROI (Return On Investment is typically within 1 year) </li></ul>LIMS Benefits
  6. 6. <ul><li>Track training records and employee certifications </li></ul><ul><li>Track Instrument maintenance and calibration </li></ul><ul><li>Full audit trail/trend and QC charts </li></ul><ul><li>User configurable QA/QC </li></ul><ul><li>Automatic Limit checking </li></ul><ul><li>Automatic sample scheduling </li></ul><ul><li>Auto-reporting (fax, laser printer, </li></ul><ul><li>e-mail (pdf), etc...) </li></ul>QA/QC Benefits
  7. 7. Implementation Plan
  8. 8. Customized LIMS
  9. 9. Reduction in Non-Productive Hours
  10. 10. <ul><li>LIMS implementation saves approximately $300,000 per lab annually </li></ul><ul><li>Standardization saved companies the cost of IT and user training for multiple LIMS, estimated at up to $250 per user per year </li></ul><ul><li>Free up to 6.3Hrs of productive time to each LIMS user per month </li></ul>Cost Benefits
