Laboratory Information Management System
CAT Squared’s Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) was developed specifically for the food-processing industry to manage lab samples and results.
As plant-floor samples are collected, LIMS generates documentation for each sample as part of a strictly enforced, bar-coded chain of custody. As samples are received into the lab, user-defined operating procedures ensure that personnel follow appropriate protocol. Analytical instruments may also be integrated with LIMS to automatically capture test results, reducing human error. With LIMS, information flows more efficiently, and the product is shipped in a timely manner; the bottom line is improved, while accuracy and compliance are ensured.
