Despite the very wide variety of materials and associated testing that are serviced by commercial testing laboratories there are many common requirements. These common requirements are however the basis of a specific requirement for each organization. These requirements are well addressed by the unique features offered by Matrix Gemini software and it's powerful, built-in, One Time configuration tools.
Contract Laboratories are one of the larger market segments that have adopted Matrix Gemini LIMS - why?
Flexibility – any LIMS must be able to capture, store and report a very wide range of materials and tests. The test formats and any associated limits or specifications must be user maintained without needing to contact the software developers or implementers.
Matrix Gemini is not only a LIMS – it will function as a business management system as well. For example, Matrix Gemini will allow the creation of quotations, order booking, allocation of appropriate prices and the production of invoices either directly or in conjunction with a corporate accounts system. The pricing part of the system is completely configurable allowing discount structures based on customer, number of samples submitted, turnaround times requested and more. An example benefit is that Matrix Gemini can help by monitoring profitability right down to the test level.
Matrix Gemini is a dual desktop/web system and therefore customers of contract laboratories can be given controlled access for the purposes of registering samples, checking on the work status and obtaining reports, for example. This functionality will reduce the number of phone calls and e-mails sent into the contract laboratory. Please note that this access facility could be limited in any way that the contract laboratory decides e.g. regular and large customers only.
Composite samples are often encountered in a contract laboratory particularly when the test results are likely to show “not detected”. It is a means of reducing both the test load and the cost to the customer.
Successful Autoscribe LIMS implementations include:
- Pharmaceutical contract laboratories
- Food testing laboratories
- Environmental laboratories (air, water, soils and plants)
- Equipment calibration and service laboratories.
- Materials testing laboratories (soils, concrete, clay, etc.)
- Physical testing laboratories.
- Veterinary pathology laboratories
- Asbestos testing laboratories
- Fuels and lubricant laboratories
This page only gives you an introductory flavour of the benefits that Matrix Gemini can bring to the contract laboratory including the reduction of costs in the business.
