Finding and implementing the ideal LIMS is not as straight forward as other software purchases. It requires in-depth research, planning, communication and knowledge. Given how much information the lab has to arm itself with to make the best decision on the ideal LIMS, this process can leave many labs frustrated before even getting started.

We want to help alleviate some of the frustration. The Ideal LIMS for Clinical Diagnostics: A Practical Buyer’s Guide eBook helps jumpstart the information gathering your lab will need when purchasing a LIMS, and it assists you with brainstorming the questions you should come prepared with when evaluating LIMS vendors.
