CloudLIMS Version 2.20 Released


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 2.20, is equipped with new features and enhancements to enable biobanks, clinical, diagnostic testing, and analytical testing laboratories, such as cannabis, food and beverage, oil and gas, to better meet the data management, reporting, automation requirements of the industry. The highlights of this version are the ability to securely deliver COVID-19 test results to a mobile app, enhanced client portal services, the ability to send test reports to patients through email, and the functionality to track, search and locate storage units with ease.

  • Securely Deliver COVID-19 Test Results to a Mobile App: You can now securely deliver COVID-19 results and certifications on Folio’s mobile app as soon as the results are available. The test results issued include a unique secure QR code to facilitate contactless result validation, enabling COVID-19 results to be asserted, anytime, anywhere. This functionality eliminates any chances of lost or misplaced results and the need to print test reports or share them via email.
  • Enhanced Client Portal Services: Your customers can now place a service request constituting multiple orders from the CloudLIMS Client Portal. For placing a service request, your customers can simply import a file (MS Excel or CSV) containing the service request catalogs along with the sample information. When uploaded to the portal, the samples are added to the samples module, the test requests are received by the lab (if the service request is of a test), and the samples and tests are associated to eliminate any transcription errors. This functionality is particularly useful for your customers who place hundreds of diagnostic test requests or sample storage requests. It empowers your customers with an easy mechanism for placing multiple orders with you, instead of manually entering each order, saving time and reducing any chances of manual errors.
  • Email Test Reports to Patients: You can now deliver test reports to patients at their registered email address. As soon as a patient’s test report is validated and released, it is added to the patient’s record. You can then directly email the test report to the patient as well as the physician on file. This functionality enables the patients to receive the results as soon as the COVID-19 testing or diagnostic laboratory completes the testing process and enables quick decision making for treatment, quarantine and isolation, curbing further spread in the community.
  • Track Storage Units With Ease: You can now create 1D or 2D barcode templates for storage containers such as boxes, plates, trays, or update existing templates. Once a template is created, you can associate it with the storage containers for automatic generation of barcodes. Furthermore, you can design and print labels for the storage containers. This functionality enables you to seamlessly track the storage units using barcodes, eliminating any chances of sample loss or misplacement.
  • Search & Locate Storage Units: You can now perform a search using the name or label of the storage units and quickly locate them. This functionality eliminates the need to manually locate storage units amongst hundreds of hierarchical storage units and easily navigate to the desired storage unit.
  • Extended Login Functionality: The latest version of CloudLIMS supports Single Sign-on (SSO) using Okta in addition to Google and LinkedIn. This functionality enables central account creation, maintenance, and logins, simplifying the authentication process. Once you have signed in via Okta, you can access CloudLIMS seamlessly without having to log in and out each time. This functionality enhances user experience, productivity, and security control. Furthermore, this functionality eliminates the need to remember multiple passwords for different applications and therefore using forgotten passwords or reset passwords to set those.
  • Filter Samples Based on Custodianship: The latest version of CloudLIMS enables you to set the sample filters so as to display only the samples that belong to you by default. Furthermore, you can set filters to display the samples shared with you or transferred to you by other users. This functionality provides you a personalized view of your samples, enabling you to quickly trace them and filter out the samples that do not belong to you, saving time and effort.
  • Resend Test Reports: You can now resend test reports through email to your customers such as hospitals or physicians you work with or directly to patients. You can choose the email recipients before resending the test reports. This functionality enables you to resend test reports if the recipients have not received them due to spam filters or if you missed attaching test reports to your email before releasing them.
