LIMS Software for Clinical Research & Testing


A Free LIMS Software for Clinical Testing and Molecular Diagnostics Laboratories



A clinical laboratory conducts tests on biospecimens such as blood, urine, feces, swabs, and more. A clinical test is typically conducted as a part of a diagnostic test to serve a patient’s medical requirements and determine a patient’s course of treatment, or as a part of research and development for the advancement of medical science, disease diagnosis, and novel pharmaceutical discoveries. For all clinical samples, it is required that the patient data be de-identified per the guidelines laid down under EU GDPR, HIPAA, and CLIA. In addition to safeguarding patient privacy, other important regulatory guidelines include maintaining a proper chain of custody for the samples, maintaining an audit trail and genealogy for each sample received. CLIA requires laboratory personnel to maintain proper records of instrument calibration and maintenance. As test results generated by clinical laboratories influence diagnostic decision making, any errors in testing or calculated results may lead to an incorrect diagnosis and may jeopardize patient health.




Therefore, establishing a system that not only simplifies the process of data management but also validates the results and maintains Quality Control (QC) & Quality Assurance (QA) standards is imperative. FreeLIMS is a cloud-based Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) tailor-made to meet the requirements of clinical research and diagnostic laboratories. With FreeLIMS, clinical laboratories can manage all patient data, sample information, test results, reports and studies with ease.
