Cloud hosted LIMS - 10 Things to Know Before You Jump

publication date: Feb 21, 2024
author/source: Autoscribe Informatics


Autoscribe Informatics (A Xybion Company) took the opportunity in a recent webinar to discuss the much-misunderstood subject of cloud hosted laboratory software solutions.

Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) are the heart of any modern laboratory, recording and storing all sample and associated meta data, as well as inventory, quality, staff training, and instrumentation information in one place. The choice of whether to keep the application and its associated data local to the laboratory and on-premise, or remotely in the cloud, is a more complex choice than it may seem. Considerations should go well beyond the resource needed to maintain the software and data and the costs of doing so, but often do not.

This webinar gives senior managers in organizations with laboratories, the knowledge to ask the tough questions and uncover which is the right choice for them.

Developed using Autoscribe’s many years of industry experience, it provides a balanced view of the benefits and limitations of on-premise and cloud solutions. Presented by Samuel Clark, Technical Sales Manager for North America at Autoscribe Informatics, it draws on recent experience in implementing laboratory informatics solutions across multiple industries from pharmaceutical and medical devices, to environmental, food and drink.


Topics covered include:

  • Why use the Cloud?
  • What does “Cloud” even mean?
  • How secure is a cloud system?
  • What happens to your data?
  • How can you integrate instruments and other systems?
  • What are the disaster recovery options


As a learning aid, this webinar is essential viewing for those making the hard choices of where to keep your main corporate asset – your data. It recognizes there are trade-offs to make, and often no perfect answers, yet arms the audience with the facts to drive the right decision for their organization. After this webinar viewers will be able to decide which choice is right for their organization. Either way, since Autoscribe supports both on-premise and cloud deployments with their Matrix Gemini LIMS, the choice is entirely up to the needs of each client.
