LIMS versus QMS: What Are They and Do I Need Both?
By Scott Renkes on August 29, 2014
In a laboratory setting, there is a lot of data that needs to be tracked. Very important work is being completed on a day-to-day basis and a system needs to be able to help a laboratory efficiently capture that sample analytical testing data. It needs to be able to provide traceability for the results, track the items that are used during the testing process back to lot numbers and be able to validate and QA that data to ensure its accuracy. As we know, testing laboratories of all types (environmental, forensic, clinical, food, reference, veterinary, & agriculture) have to routinely prove that their results are accurate.
Qualtrax’s Juliann Poff has written a white paper on LMS versus QMS, and why you should have both. Read the white paper here.
