Many laboratories have at least two or more individual laboratories in their company’s organization. These laboratories may be close together or across the country. What’s the best solution for LIMS? A simple, money saving option that Khemia offers is a second Lab ID, allowing a separate database on the same installation instance of the server. This provides each laboratory ID a separate client, analysis, sample and instrument list—the only thing shared is the server. From this approach, each laboratory can act independently and sub-contract samples to their own laboratories with the standard “paper trail” that would accompany sub-contracted samples to any sub-contract laboratory. Compared to a completely separate server and implementation, this is a much less expensive option.
With proper permissions, an owner or laboratory director may access multiple LabIDs to check on the status of multiple laboratories by simply selecting which LabID they want to look at.
