Astrix Webinar – Ensuring Successful LIMS Selection for Scientific Laboratories
A webinar sponsored by the Astrix Technology Group
Date: Tuesday, August 28th, 2018
Time: 1:00 PM EDT / 10:00 AM PDT
Organizations looking to address deficiencies in their legacy LIMS have two options – re-architect/re-engineer their legacy system, or purchase and migrate to a new LIMS. In our last webinar, we explored best practices for re-architecting legacy LIMS. In this webinar, we will explore the first step involved in migrating to a new LIMS – technology selection.
Many organizations try to select a LIMS without first performing the due diligence required to align laboratory functional needs with the strategic needs of the business – an error that is magnified if more than one site is involved. With over 20 years of experience helping scientific organizations choose and implement informatics systems for their laboratories, Astrix is uniquely qualified to help you select the LIMS that best meets your business needs.
Topics covered in this webinar include:
- Documenting the current (As-Is) state
- Creating optimized future state (To-Be) workflows
- Developing functional requirements aligned with business needs
- Utilizing these optimized future state requirements to guide LIMS selection
- Avoiding common pitfalls in LIMS selection
