Veterinary Diagnostics Laboratory LIMS Case Study

publication date: Jan 14, 2016
author/source: Autoscribe Ltd

Autoscribe Informatics has published a new case study on the use of the Matrix Gemini LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) at a multi-site veterinary diagnostic and clinical pathology laboratory.

 Matrix Gemini LIMSMatrix Gemini is being used by NationWide Laboratory Services to co-ordinate sample tracking, management and reporting across laboratories in four different UK locations. 

NationWide Laboratory Services is a UKAS accredited independent multi–disciplinary veterinary laboratory providing diagnostic and clinical pathology services for veterinary surgeons throughout the UK, Europe and beyond. The laboratory offers over 1100 test options across the full range of clinical pathology disciplines. The case study highlights how Matrix Gemini was introduced to replace the individual LIMS running at each site and to provide remote access to test results for those veterinary specialists who work from home.

Matrix Gemini’s dual web/Windows user interface makes it ideally suited to multi-site applications. The unique Matrix Gemini configuration tools on the desktop client ensure that any screen that has been configured for use on the desktop is immediately available to a user running a web browser. The system can manage sample testing at individual sites, sample testing at multiple sites and samples that are tested both internally and at 3rd party laboratories if a test not available within the portfolio is required. 

The configuration tools were also extremely important since they have provided the end user with the flexibility to adapt the system in future. Matrix manages the entire workflow from sample registration to reporting, including the management of inter-site sample transfers.  The rapid order entry allows a wide range of information to be captured. Pre-printed barcodes provide a unique reference and allow tests to be started, and other clinical information can be entered manually. The system acts as a searchable repository of information across all the sites, including the complete history of the animal. Data can be transferred directly into reports using veterinary standard VETXML.
