L is for LIMS

LIMS is an acronym that means “Laboratory Inventory Management System.” Because of the amount of data that laboratories such as ours must keep track of, using LIMS is necessary.

At SIREAL, we use LIMS for light stable isotopes that was developed at the Reston Stable Isotope Laboratory, part of the United States Geological Survey.

LIMS for light stable isotopes does more than just organize and store your data, it also contains all the necessary algorithms and does the necessary calculations to convert raw data from the mass spectrometer into usable isotopic results that can be compared among laboratories internationally.
