LIMS in Action at a Radiological, Environmental and Analytical Laboratory

publication date: Dec 8, 2015
author/source: Autoscribe Informatics

Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) specialist, Autoscribe Informatics, has published a new case study describing the use of the Matrix Gemini LIMS in a major Radiological, Environmental and Analytical Laboratory.

custom table mappingThe laboratory carries out radioanalytical analysis of environmental samples to provide support for characterisation and independent verification surveys. A LIMS was needed to replace its in-house relational database which could no longer be supported. 

The system was required to handle a large volume of data and perform unique calculations to correct results. In order to facilitate this, ‘custom table mapping’, a standard technology built into Matrix Gemini LIMS was used. Here custom tables were created within SQL Server with a series of required auditing fields along with dozens of fields specifically named and designed to contain the complex radiochemistry data. 

The standards used in analysis factor in decay over time. Matrix Gemini is able to calculate this degradation using complex calculations so that an accurate value of the standard is used for each analysis, whenever it is carried out.

Autoscribe Informatics Managing Director, John Boother, commented: “This was probably one of the most technically challenging LIMS projects that we have undertaken, and yet once again, the configuration tools approach which underpins the Matrix Gemini LIMS allowed us to create a system that exactly met the customer’s needs. This configuration approach lends extraordinary flexibility to the use of Matrix Gemini. At the same time as we were building the system for the radiological laboratory, we were working with another customer to use Matrix Gemini to manage the administration of a lottery”.
