At the beginning of the year, setting goals and resolutions is tradition. Why not start the year with looking at how your laboratory can implement new and smarter ways of working? Evaluating your current working practices is a great start to assess where you can remove non-value-added steps to increase the amount of time you spend on value-added steps of your process. Sample analysis processes can easily be streamlined and improved with the help of an intuitive and easy-to-use LIMS such as LabHQ. Here’s where LabHQ can help you work smarter in your lab.
As a laboratory that has already made the leap from paper to LIMS, moving away from LIMS would be a step backwards, and certainly wouldn’t be the favourable option if your LIMS is no longer supported. What do you do when your LIMS supplier has discontinued service? In this blog, we go through the key areas to consider, so you don’t have to roll back to paper-based systems.
Looking for the right LIMS for your laboratory can take up a lot of time. As a bare minimum, you’ll need a clear understanding of your requirements and arrange demonstrations, so you can get a feel for what the LIMS can deliver for your lab. In this blog, we highlight some of the key areas to consider when you are selecting a LIMS.

Communication is a key part of working as a team, delivering on business objectives, and meeting customer expectations. When you’re working in a laboratory, there are many opportunities to communicate effectively to avoid disappointment.
Laboratory management can be challenging, especially when you try to keep your ducks in a row. With the implementation of a LIMS system, processes can be refined not only to create uniformity in your laboratory but
It’s a question I ask daily; how are you currently managing your QC data?
We all want to be productive, right? However, this is quite often easier said than done, especially in a busy QC laboratory environment! Who has the time spare to sit back and
The last check before test results reach a client is the approval stage. Where test results are formally reported on a certificate of analysis, approval is authenticated by signature. So, what does that signature mean? And what should Lab Managers review before they sign the dotted line?
