Atlanta, GA, United States, 2009/03/24 - A new update for the LIMSkit, a popular resource for the laboratory industry has been released. This advance comes at a perfect time, with the new version including significant new information, demonstrations, LIMS development tools, etc.
Anyone who downloads the LIMSkit at limskit.com now only needs to do it once, as all future updates will be automatically incorporated and accessible. This advance comes at a perfect time, with the new version also including significant new information, demonstrations, LIMS development tools, career resources and tons of other valuable resource for all stakeholders in the laboratory industry. The LIMSkit is useful to LIMS users, administrators, developers, and LIMS vendors and consultants alike. LabLynx encourages all of these stakeholders to download the LIMSkit and start making use of this valuable resource.
Leading The Freedom Of Information Movement For Labs
The main reason the LIMSkit has proved so popular is that for a long time laboratory professionals have struggled to gain any real information about LIMS, often having to prepare RFPs without any substantial guidance as to how to identify their own needs regarding a LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System), much less compare functions and features of available systems.
LabLynx long ago decided to take the Open Access approach to every aspect of LIMS. Confident in the belief that an informed LIMS user/consumer will make the choice in LIMS that is best for their needs given the chance to have complete, thorough and open information. With this in mind, LabLynx has compiled an unrivalled library of online functional demonstrations, information and valuable tools and continues to regularly publish information about both LIMS and all associated tools and applications.
LIMSKIT A HIT
Because information has been so hard to come by in the LIMS industry, LabLynx reports unprecedented business as lab professionals - labs themselves as well as consultants, academics and associated companies providing products and/or services - from all over the world are downloading and using the LIMSkit to gain valuable information about LIMS and Laboratory Informatics.
There have been over 5,000 downloads of the LIMSkit since its first introduction less than a year ago and this single resource has resulted in LabLynx growing by over 50% in 2008. And already in the first quarter of 2009, the LabLynx growth rate has exceeded the entire revenue of 2008. This growth is directly attributable to innovations such as the LIMSkit and our webLIMS offerings.
LabLynx (lablynx.com) began what has proved to be a continuing track record of leadership in the laboratory informatics industry by introducing the world’s first web browser-based LIMS in 1997 and web hosted LIMS in 1998. And in 2006, becoming the founding member of the Laboratory Informatics Institute.
LabLynx, Inc. is incorporated as an independently owned and operated software company, whose flagship product, the ELab LIMS suite, offers unrivalled breadth of function and extreme configurability, making it suitable for any lab, regardless of industry or size. Its scalability, both horizontally and vertically, and leading edge technology give it a longer operational lifetime than any other LIMS.
The core LabLynx team has combined software development and laboratory management experience of over 125 man years; with all of that invested in the current release of the LABLynx ELab LIMS. So rather than being a product created by software engineers that are ignorant of laboratory/scientific concerns, ELab is a result of combined expertise of engineers, developers and chemical/laboratory professionals – making it the ideal solution for the laboratory industry.
