Laboratories that perform COVID-19 diagnostic tests need to increase their testing capacity by minimizing the turnaround time to meet the growing demand for COVID-19 tests. Various tests performed in a COVID-19 testing laboratory include RT-PCR, serological tests for the detection of IgG/IgM antibodies, Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA), neutralization test, and Rapid Diagnostic Tests (RDT). COVID-19 diagnostic testing laboratories usually receive a large number of COVID-19 specimens and test requests on a daily basis. It is essential for them to efficiently manage samples, protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of patients, and provide accurate and reliable test results. A LIMS software solution could help COVID-19 testing laboratories meet unprecedented testing demands with ease.
FreeLIMS is a cloud-based Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) that helps COVID-19 diagnostic laboratories manage specimens, safeguard patient data, and report accurate and reliable test results. It eliminates chances of manual errors and helps generate custom test reports as per FDA and CDC guidelines. FreeLIMS also helps COVID-19 diagnostic laboratories meet regulatory compliance, such as HIPAA, with ease. You can easily manage the results of positive and negative control samples and compare them with the results of patient samples to accurately determine the final test results and validate them before sharing the test report with patients or physicians. Additionally, FreeLIMS enables COVID-19 research laboratories to securely manage research data and share it with colleagues for studies.
