Public health officials around the world depend on your lab’s ability to not only monitor and track possible pandemics and epidemics, but also to determine causative effects whenever they occur. The STARLIMS Public Health LIMS solution automates processes throughout the lifecycle of the sample, from scheduling to sample login to reporting, empowering labs to deliver timely and accurate results to protect the health of entire population.
Molecular testing is becoming more affordable and now more mainstream. Even in the Public Health arena molecular assays are becoming the norm, and in the Clinical Diagnostic setting Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is becoming more prominent for disease profiling. The proliferation of complex molecular testing such as that of NGS in clinical laboratories has led to new requirements and guidelines to be issued by CAP, CLIA, and ACMG. These cover the need for assay validation and the management of sample processing, the data obtained during testing and the release and dissemination of results.
CAP and CLIA inspectors are starting to familiarize themselves with these guidelines and the recertification process will become more tenuous. Laboratories that have implemented the new requirements and recommendations reduce the risk of having deficiencies found during inspections. Having a LIMS that can demonstrate effective management of these high complexity molecular processes, contributes to the growth and validity of the laboratory.

"The software we used before was based on Microsoft Access. With all the limitations it entailed, the main problem we used to face was it was impossible to interface it with other software (SAP, CRM, etc.)."
