of robotic liquid handling and computerised analysis facilitates
more sophisticated data exchange between the LIMS and the lab processes.
We have developed a completely integrated system that generates
work lists for the various component instruments depending on batch
size and make up as defined either automatically or manually in
the LIMS. Wee have used export protocols within the analysis packages
to directly allocate results to the appropriate sample within the
LIMS. Both these interfaces reduce the chances for error and streamline
sample processing. A simplified process diagram of the proposed
system can be viewed here.
