Toxicology Labs- Why Simply Getting Paid is No Longer Enough

As a company which actively maximizes revenue for toxicology reference laboratories, we have witnessed a wide variety of billing and reimbursement scenarios over the past few years. Many of these scenarios are proper, but a large portion are either the result of not knowing any better, or worse yet, the result of knowingly false billing practices. The later scenarios can place your toxicology laboratory and all of your hard work at tremendous risk.

LIMS Benefits for Every Holiday

Around every holiday there's an increase in buying activity. Your LIMS can lead to better inventory planning, quicker release of materials, and the ability to search for data more quickly. Be prepared for the next holiday so that you can reap the most benefits of increased consumer buying activities.

Principles and application of LIMS in mouse clinics

Clinical researchers conducting mouse studies at seven different facilities around the world shared their experiences using a laboratory information management system (LIMS) in order “to facilitate or even enable mouse and data management” better in their facilities. This 2015 paper by Maier et al. examines those discussions and final findings in a “review” format, concluding “the unique LIMS environment in a particular facility strongly influences strategic LIMS decisions and LIMS development” though “there is no universal LIMS for the mouse research domain that fits all requirements.”
