Links for LIMS (L4L) interprets the request and gathers all the necessary data from (any) LIMS and passes it back to the instrument. Simultaneously, L4L collects results as they are produced and displays them to the user. AQCs are checked against limits and when the analyst has reviewed them, an approval action will send the results to LIMS. All AQC results are sent to an integrated AQC system for the statistical analysis and charting of all required AQC samples.
A surprising range of automation and integration requirements can be met with CSols’ fully configurable standard product, Links for LIMS which requires absolutely no user programming to implement. Links for LIMS is a highly configurable, easy to implement and simple to use instrument interfacing and integration product. Some similar applications require the user to utilize embedded scripting tools (languages such as Basic) to create usable solutions. It is important to consider the onerous validation issues created when allowing users to generate such custom programs.
As a ‘rule of thumb’ CSols’ experience shows that it is almost always financially worth integrating with LIMS if the instrument reports more than 100 results per day. In addition to cost benefits there is demonstrably improved analytical quality, faster turnaround and better analyst job satisfaction.
