LIMS Rental Solution Helps Record Traceable Water Testing Results

Jul 16 2010

One of the UK’s leading marine consultancy, survey and laboratory testing specialists, Emu Ltd, has embraced QSI’s WinLims Rental solution for laboratories to enhance the accuracy, efficiency and traceability of its
laboratory information management procedures to improve the organisation’s microbiology and water quality laboratories’ customer service.

“When samples arrive at the lab we immediately register them on WinLims and then enter all results on completion of testing; WinLims then produces reports to be sent to our clients. The WinLims Rental system
helps us with traceability of samples from our laboratory,” explained Christina Scott, Microbiology Lab Manager for Emu Ltd. Scott continued: “We needed the LIMS system to help us develop and expand. We used a paperbasedsystem before and the WinLims system is definitely more efficient. We opted for the rental package due to cost efficiency. We had two or three companies come in to show us their LIMS systems and we didn’t really see any difference between the services or the products being proposed apart from feeling that the QSI seemed the most cost effective. The other companies did not offer a rental option. The cost of licences was a key consideration. Some of the LIMS packages being offered by QSI’s competitors would have required us to buy as many five or ten licences as a minimum which for our current use was too many.” Scott added: “The key benefits of the WinLims system we found were its ease of use as well as the technical support that QSI is able to provide. We would definitely recommend LIMS rental as an option. I am really happy with the system”. WinLims Rental allows an organisation to use a full LIMS for a low monthly fee, with a low up-front cost. The rental agreements are highly tax efficient and can be converted to a subscription contract or full purchase at any time, keeping an organisation’s options open.
