Top 4 Things You May Not Know About Lab Informatics Systems
1. Labs gained the first opportunity to use automated reporting tools when the first generation of LIMS was introduced in 1982.
2. Second-generation commercial LIMS released in 1988 expanded LIMS into more application-specific fields and the third generation in 1990 used the emerging client/server architecture to give labs better exchanges and data processing.
3. LIMS went global in 1996 as web-enabled versions hit the market, letting scientists manage their operations beyond their labs.
4. The first generation of ELNs came out in the late 1990s and was designed for basic data capture. A second generation offered specific domain functionality such as searchable reaction databases, automated stoichiometry calculations and reaction planning for chemists, and the third generation of ELNs expanded this chemistry functionality and provided generic capabilities that extended ELNs’ reach to other disciplines, including biology.
