Extending the Use of LIMS Into the Field

The new Matrix Gemini Field Analytics System from Autoscribe Informatics extends the use of the LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) to the field. Further enhancing remote access capabilities for Matrix Gemini, the new Field Analytics System allows test data to be recorded off-line and uploaded to the LIMS when an internet connection can be re-established.
The Field Analytics System is designed to operate on an Android tablet or mobile device and sync with the Matrix Gemini LIMS database. It enables users to select and download the sample information they want from Matrix Gemini. The sample data can be edited and relevant test results recorded off-line.
Results are automatically checked as they are entered to ensure they are a valid type (numeric, test etc.). Updated results are stored until an Internet or mobile data connection becomes available and it is convenient to upload the data to the Matrix Gemini LIMS database server.
Communicating with the database server via a web service, the Field Analytics System authenticates user rights before allowing access for data download/upload. It also records user identities when data is uploaded or changed. To limit the data downloaded, users may specify which samples are of interest. This keeps sync times to a minimum. A built-in search facility allows users to limit the number of samples shown at any one time on the device.
Researchers have developed a new AI-driven platform that can analyse how pathogens infect our cells with the precision of a trained biologist. The platform, HRMAn (‘Herman’), which stands for Host Response to Microbe Analysis, is open-source, easy-to-use and can be tailored for different pathogens including Salmonella enterica.READ MORE
The amount of information and data which workers find themselves confronted with every day has increased enormously over the past few years. As a result, decision-makers are often supported by digital information systems. But what effect do these tools have on the people using them? And do these information systems make users “stupid” because they, the users, are no longer being challenged? Quite the contrary, say new research.READ MORE
