  • In its short history, the LIMS industry has seen more than a few myths come and go. Most of the time, these myths are the result of misconceptions that are based on misunderstanding.

    Unfortunately, a laboratory that accepts these myths as fact may be missing out on an opportunity to make a significant improvement in the efficiency of their data management.

    Let's take a look at the top 5 myths about LIMS interfacing and see if we can find the real truth behind them.

    Myth #1: Interfacing is easy, you just need an instrument driver.

    This myth has its origins in the very early days of LIMS interfacing when LIMS developers started using instrument drivers to create interfaces. In theory this approach seemed to make a lot of sense. Create a driver for each instrument, and in short order you have interfacing solutions for most common lab instruments. In practice it did not work very well.
