Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) Market – Dynamics
Several key vendors in the market integrate electronic lab notebook (ELN) with LIMS. This integration allows researchers to efficiently document their work. In the past, researchers used notebooks to record their readings. Complex research such as genome sequencing, oncology research, and chemical-based reactions require an efficient system than notebooks to keep track of the data. Thus, the introduction of ELN software has helped researchers to record, share, analyze, and control experiments easily. ELN is user-friendly and its adoption is slowly increasing. The latest LIMS integrated ELN has increased the penetration of the product in research labs. The integration of LIMS with ELN is considered to be revolutionary. Various segments such as healthcare, oil, and environmental science research require additional administrative support for their day-to-day workflow in labs. They face several challenges in managing data related to SOPs and samples that are very crucial for research. Research related to personalized medicine require more sophisticated privacy data management.
Key Drivers and Trends fueling Market Growth:
Introduction of LIMS in Labs to Combat COVID-19
Increasing Demand for Genomic LIMS
Integration of ELN with LIMS
Increasing Demand for the Mobile LIMS Application
Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) Market – Geography
