CloudLIMS, an advanced SaaS, in the cloud LIMS software with zero upfront cost, accelerates biobanking, analytical, diagnostic testing, and research laboratory operations by efficiently managing laboratory data, automating laboratory workflows, and following regulatory compliance, such as ISO/IEC 17025:2017, ISO 15189:2012, ISO 20387:2018, EU GDPR, HIPAA, GLP, 21 CFR part 11, among others. The latest version of CloudLIMS, version 2.0, is equipped with new features and enhancements to enable biobanks, clinical, and analytical testing laboratories, such as cannabis, food and beverage, oil and gas, to better meet the reporting, data management, automation requirements of the industry. The highlights of this version are the ability to generate barcodes for patients, process test requests in a batch, and batch import samples of different types to CloudLIMS’s storage management module.
Generate Barcodes for Patients: You can now generate unique 1D and 2D barcodes for patient records, create barcode templates for each type of patient, and batch update patient barcodes. You can exclude Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of patients from barcodes to safeguard patient privacy. This functionality enables you to generate patient barcodes containing the identifiers or attributes that would enable you to trace back to the patient without disclosing sensitive patient data to unauthorized users.
Process Test Requests in a Batch: You can now accept or reject multiple test requests in a batch, enabling you to quickly initiate the processing of multiple requests as soon as you receive them, reducing turnaround time. This functionality is particularly useful for laboratories receiving hundreds of test requests on a daily basis.
Batch Import Samples to Storage: You can now batch import samples of various types from a file directly to the storage units in CloudLIMS. Based on the sample type, the samples are automatically sorted. This functionality enables you to seamlessly import and assign storage locations to multiple types of samples you manage in your biobank or laboratory, saving time, effort, and reducing manual errors.
Select Analytes for Doughnut Chart: You can now include analytes of interest in the doughnut chart while reporting test results. You can save the analyte selection for the doughnut chart as a part of the analyte report template for using it over again, saving time. This functionality enhances the reporting flexibility and enables you to personalize test reports based on the reporting requirements that may vary from one customer to another.
Enhanced REST API: The latest version of CloudLIMS’ REST Application Programming Interface (API) enables your customers to place test requests using the API. This functionality enables you to provide an alternative mechanism to your customers.
