The laboratory solution for research laboratories
We are currently developing a preconfigured solution for research laboratories with the support of the ESF. Compared to other laboratories (company laboratories, contract laboratories), the procedure in the research laboratory is considerably different. It receives its research assignments from production and it defines and executes concrete tests with extensive autonomy. The focus is on achieving a technical result and not on commercially billable profit. Commercial orders by a third party are the exception.
Resources and deadlines are therefore the most important key figures in organisational terms. A test has a chronological sequence and requires the use of resources. The test conditions must be documented. Measured values are only partially recorded. Limit values play a subordinate role. Unlike the other types of laboratories, the process here focusses on the test.
In contrast to traditional company laboratories or contract laboratories, research involves the use of special functions such as test progress management. iLIMS can be adapted to your individual needs via the integration of different additional modules.
We recommend the following additional modules in the research laboratory:
