ATL Webcast: Roadmap to a Successful LIMS Needs Assessment
News Feb 27, 2015
Accelerated Technology Laboratories, Inc. (ATL) will host the third in a series of webcasts on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 entitled Roadmap to a Successful LIMS Needs Assessment.
A LIMS Needs Assessment provides tools utilized to identify not only requirements, but what types of laboratory automation technologies, methods and training should be provided to a laboratory in order to improve productivity, efficiency, and data quality, while meeting regulatory compliance requirements.
A LIMS Needs Assessment can be vital in assisting organizations in determining what the best options are for saving time and money when purchasing a LIMS. This is a critical step when launching a laboratory automation project as it provides assistance in clearly defining and validating requirements.
Assessments help accelerate the implementation process once a LIMS is purchased. Through the utilization of proven tools, techniques and methods, an Automation Needs Assessment assists organizations with developing clearly defined goals and objectives, adequate resource allocation, identification of risks and any "unknowns" which may create a delay in their project.
Recommended attendees include laboratory owners, directors and managers, and quality managers in the analytical, food & beverage, manufacturing (product/material testing), agriculture, energy, environmental, water/wastewater, life science, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, forensics and public health sectors.
