Histology LIMS

Laboratory informatics improves the productivity of histology departments while preserving chains of custody.

Get a Histology LIMS Solution for High-Throughput Slide Preparation

Your lab’s histotechnicians (HTs) and histotechnologists (HLTs) take on the delicate task of preparing tissue samples for microscopic examinations. Pathologists perform these examinations to support medicolegal investigations that contribute to criminal cases. Although automation helps, much of the preparation process is still hands-on. Producing reliable results requires strict adherence to standard operating procedures. In addition, the department must preserve chains of custody for all wet tissues, intermediate samples and slides.

ELab LIMS for Histology is a special configuration of LabLynx’s cloud-based informatics platform. Your histology team only sees the features and data they need to prepare slides for examination. Specimen tracking and case management features preserve chains of custody. Configurable assays and workflows, combined with instrument integrations and notifications, ensure your HTs and HLTs consistently perform their tasks. At the same time, ELab LIMS for Histology integrates seamlessly with your lab’s overall ELab LIMS implementation.
