LIMS/ELN/LES: Uses, Overlaps, & Benefits
The challenges and needs of scientists, laboratories, and organizations continually change over time and in response, the laboratory informatics industry has continued to innovate and develop new capabilities and software systems. This has resulted in an “alphabet soup” of lab informatics solutions (LIMS, ELN, LES, etc.) being offered by a variety of vendors. As the number and type of lab informatics systems continue to grow, the degree of functional overlap and convergence of purpose has likewise grown. As a result, it has become more difficult to determine which system or combination of systems will give you the capabilities and benefits that you are looking for and which solution is best for your situation.
In one hour, learn the benefits and uses of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), Laboratory Execution Systems (LES), and Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELN). An informatics expert will discuss the specific uses and benefits of each application type. The webinar will also review the convergence of functionality that is taking place in this space as well as why an integrated multi-system solution may work best in your lab, department, or organization.
