Contract Testing LIMS
Supporting the specialized needs of labs supporting others
Informatics to automate, boost efficiency, and manage high-volume contract laboratory testing
Contract labs come in many types and sizes, specializing in a wide range of testing and market segments, from a reference lab that does blood testing for hospitals, to a lab that does microbiology testing for food and beverage manufacturers. Often the contract lab is one of few resources for unusual tests or highly expensive equipment. Despite the diverse types of situations, contract labs often share common traits, like the need for speed, efficiency, an online portal for entering requests and posting results, and a convenient way to manage the financials and bill clients.
LabVantage LIMS provides contract labs with these essential capabilities, and many more, in one platform. The highly modern and flexible informatics platform helps reduce overhead, cut costs, and standardize processes so that operations are highly efficient. Access to an online portal plays an important role in streamlining order entry and conveying test results. Interfacing with robotics for slide prep and specimen storage is another way operational technology helps increase productivity and speed testing—without compromising quality.
Contract labs can also count on LabVantage for:
