With a web-based user interface supplied as standard in addition to the traditional Windows-based desktop interface, the Matrix Gemini Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) from Autoscribe can be accessed remotely using a device equipped with a web browser and internet access. This means that laptops, popular tablet computers such as iPads and even the Kindle ‘Fire’ e-reader can be used to provide instant access to results, reports and sample status from anywhere in the world, subject to user’s password-controlled authority profile.
The dual web/Windows user interface provides a high degree of flexibility without any implementation overhead. As soon as any screen is designed using the unique Matrix Gemini OneTime Configuration Tools, it is immediately available via the web browser, without further modification, effort or cost. The web browser interface offers an identical user experience to the Windows interface.
Remote access is particularly useful for registering samples collected away from the laboratory. For example in water testing, details of the location, pH, temperature and time of collection can all be entered via the web interface, which provides full access to all the required sample registration screens. The status of the sample is updated when the sample is received at the laboratory.
