As the founder of LIMSource, I am pleased to report that the recent acquisition of the LIMSource by Technology Networks has resulted in an even better online LIMS experience for industry professionals researching laboratory information management systems (LIMS).
Folding the two resources into a single, robust platform allows us to deliver the most current and relevant information about products, services, industry mergers and acquisitions, new white papers and events of interest (both online and in person). Now, the scientific community has access to the largest directory of LIMS, Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs), Scientific Data Management Systems (SDMSs) and other laboratory automation products from the most current database anywhere.
Whilst updating and incorporating LIMSource into the Technology Networks’ portfolio, I discovered that many of the vendor profiles were not only out of date and needed to reflect the vendor’s current product offerings, but a number of companies had merged or been acquired by other organizations. Sadly many had also thrown in the towel and were no longer in business — some of which had been fairly recent additions to the database. During this thorough housekeeping upwards of 20 percent of the listings were eliminated or significantly changed.
So what does this all mean to users? In addition to the ability to offer faster, more targeted searching for LIMS and other products of interest, the new Technology Networks-LIMSource community provides the most accurate, objective information on the internet. I can’t tell you how delighted I am to be part of this evolution; in fact I am telling you!
Till next month,
