Metals & Mining LIMS with a Focus on Quality Control

Companies in the metals and mining industry rely on laboratory testing at every stage of the mining life cycle, from exploration and preparation to extraction and processing. Those companies also face some of the toughest sample preparation challenges of any industry. Each location’s geology, the metals and minerals being extracted, and the local regulations will determine the lab’s combination of analytes, specialized instruments, sample preparation techniques, and testing methods. Whether your lab offers metallurgy testing for failure, corrosion, or heat treatment, or services in mineralogical analysis or geochemistry exploration, a LabLynx Metals & Mining LIMS can support your operation beyond simple sample tracking. Our ELab LIMS offers a variety of features and functions that can help metals and mining labs automate processes, achieve quality control, adapt to changing workflows, manage inventory and instruments, meet regulatory compliance, and more.
