About the course

The reliability of analytical data thus obtained depends on several factors, sampling being the major factor. Current analytical methods require only few grams of food sample to analyze. Thus, it is necessary that a sample be as representative of the population as possible.

A Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is computer software that is used in the laboratory for the management of samples, laboratory users, instruments, standards and other laboratory functions such as invoicing, and work flow automation.

LIMS is designed for a wide variety of laboratory environments operating in many scientific and industrial disciplines.

Application of modern technology techniques inside laboratory is one most important modern ways of progress. Facilitating everything inside laboratory starting from samples receiving and handling, completing the analysis procedures, reporting the final analysis results, retrieving the old stored data results, auditing inventory of materials, is now can be handled easily by application and implementation of some kinds of software named as “Laboratory Information Management Systems” (LIMS).

Using the Implementation of such systems can easily facilitate and control all procedures inside laboratory starting from sampling plan until final analysis reporting. Also, authorization of data available inside laboratory can be easily controlled through access control for every person inside laboratory.
