LIMS and the Lab Informatics Landscape

    How LIMS fits into today’s Lab Informatics landscape, and best practice integration with technologies such as ELN and LES

This webinar will review the current Lab Informatics landscape, with particular focus on LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System). The role of LIMS will be discussed – how it has evolved, current functional footprint and how it is likely to evolve in the future considering the emergence of other complementary technologies such as ELN (Electronic Lab Notebooks), LES (Laboratory Execution System) and SDMS (Scientific Data Management System). Best practice integration with ELN, LES and SDMS will also be reviewed, with a view to helping clarify the confusion that tends to exist in the market regarding the “overlap” between LIMS and ELN/LES technology.

This webinar will address:

  • The current Lab Informatics landscape involves several technologies (LIMS, ELN, LES, SDMS etc.) and this can lead to customer confusion and uncertainty about how to prioritise purchases and deployments
  • How “big” should the functional footprint of LIMS be ( compared to the other Lab Informatics products ELN, LES, SDMS etc.) and where are the areas of potential functional overlap?
  • If a laboratory is already automated with a LIMS, what extra benefits might ELN/LES/SDMS bring?
  • How to achieve a paperless laboratory?

3 key benefits of attending:

  1. Learn how the leading LIMS vendor views how LIMS should integrate in today’s complex Lab Informatics landscape, based on real-life experiences
  2. Discover best-practice approaches to LIMS implementation (with or without integration to ELN/LES technologies)
  3. Learn how the leading LIMS vendor views the future of LIMS, in relation to other Lab Informatics technologies such as ELN, LES and SDMS

Who should attend:

  • QA Manager
  • IT Manager
  • IT Director
  • QA Director
  • R&D Director

from pharma, biotechnology, medical devices, consumer product companies (e.g. cosmetics, healthcare products)


Mark Gonzalez
Technical Director – LabWare Europe

Mark Gonzalez is Technical Director for LabWare’s European operations. He has been involved in LIMS for over 20 years. His first exposure to LIMS was as a Laboratory Technician within the pharmaceutical industry, when he was selected to administer the system.

After a couple of years as a LIMS Administrator, Mark moved over to the vendor side of LIMS, working in a variety of jobs from Technical Representative to Software Development Manager. During this time, Mark was involved in several LIMS implementations around the world.

In 1995, Mark joined LabWare, who were looking to achieve in Europe the same success they had achieved within the USA. Mark implemented the first installations of LabWare LIMS within Europe.
