CloudLIMS, an advanced SaaS, in-the-cloud Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) software with zero upfront cost, accelerates biobanking, clinical research and diagnostics, cannabis, environmental, and water testing laboratory operations by efficiently managing laboratory data, automating workflows, and following regulatory compliance, such as CLIA, ISO 15189:2022, CAP, ISO 20387:2018, EU GDPR, HIPAA, GLP, ISO/IEC 17025:2017, 21 CFR part 11, among others. The latest version of CloudLIMS, version 3.70, is equipped with new features and enhancements to enable laboratories to better meet their data management, automation, and regulatory requirements. The highlights of this version include the functionality to generate comprehensive services and billing reports, associate tests with inventory templates for the automatic deduction of lab inventory quantity, associate subjects with studies in a batch, and more.
Generate Comprehensive Services & Billing Reports: The latest version of CloudLIMS enables you to generate a comprehensive report of all services offered by your laboratory along with the billing information. This functionality enables laboratory managers and staff to quickly generate a report of all service requests received by the laboratory to date, for example, you can now generate a report for test requests and sample storage requests for a given month.
Associate Documents with Study Records: You can now easily associate a document with all the records of the same study in a few steps, thus saving time. This functionality saves the effort of associating common documents with each record individually. Alternatively, you can associate a specific document, such as an Informed Consent Form, with a specific study record. Only approved, validated, and published documents in the Documents Module can be associated with study types and records, which prevents any rejected documents from getting associated.
Associate Subjects with Studies in a Batch:Associating subjects with studies is now more convenient. While adding a new subject record individually or while importing multiple subject records from a file, you can associate each subject record with one or multiple study records using lab-defined or system-defined study IDs. Furthermore, you can update study records associated with existing subjects in a batch. The functionality makes it easy to associate multiple existing or new subjects with studies in one go instead of doing it individually for each subject, saving time and eliminating chances of manual errors.
Enhanced REST API: The REST API is enhanced in the new version of CloudLIMS to support retrieving, sending, and updating files, such as images and documents, attached to sample records. These attachments can be exchanged among end users, clients, or third parties using CloudLIMS’ enhanced REST API. This functionality provides an alternative mechanism for users to update files in CloudLIMS’ Sample Management module.
Associate Tests with Lab Inventory Templates: The latest version now enables you to associate a lab inventory template with a test type. Once a test type is associated with a template, CloudLIMS automatically deducts the amount of inventory typically consumed during a particular type of test depending on the default deduction quantity configured in the template. For instance, if 5 ml of a reagent is consumed for a particular test, the system automatically deducts 5 ml from the available inventory and reflects the reduced amount every time the test is performed. In addition to the automatic deduction, you can manually specify the inventory quantity to be deducted while entering test results to account for inventory consumed for a test. The functionality facilitates a quick, easy, and automatic way to keep the inventory stock updated in the system as opposed to having to manually deduct the inventory amount consumed each time a particular test is performed.
Cross Module Referencing Extended to Context Search: You can now quickly run a context search to trace sample or test records using Client and Patient attributes. This functionality extends the context search functionality across modules and makes context search more versatile, enabling users to further refine search results to generate meaningful reports.
New Time Format Support: A new time format, hour-minute (HH:MM), has been introduced, and CloudLIMS now supports the hour-minute time format in both 12-hour and 24-hour clock time. You can choose a preferred time format or change it as required.
