Summary Note Laboratory Information Managements Systems (LIMS) are either custom-built or off-the-shelf solutions to the problems of controlling the flow of data through laboratories. In this book commercial relevance is ensured by authors from major industrial organizations who demonstrate by example successful application of the technology. This book provides an excellent up-to-date overview of this intensely competitive field.:
