Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are the steps for developing a laboratory management software?

Here are the steps you need to follow to reap the maximum benefits of custom developing a laboratory management software for your lab.

  1. Analyze the existing workflow and identify areas of improvement that can be automated.
  2. Choose between hiring an in-house software team or outsourcing the development effort.
  3. Find the right partner for developing your laboratory management software.
  4. Take the incremental approach to software development by aiming for a minimum viable product and scaling up gradually.

3. How does a laboratory information management system work?

A Laboratory Information Management Software (LIMS) allows you to streamline the operations of your laboratory by managing clinical samples and their associated data securely while ensuring its easy availability.

LIMS can help your lab in automating workflows, integrating instruments, managing samples and their associated information, and keeping a track of the inventory within the laboratory.

5. How much does a laboratory information system cost?

The costs of a laboratory management system can range from $5000 to $100,000 depending on whether you choose to purchase an off-the-shelf solution or build one for your lab.

Even in case of custom development of LMS, the costs can vary based on the features, complexity, software integrations required and the size and expertise of the development team working on your project.

If you have a clear idea of the scope of your project, healthcare software development consultants at Arkenea can help you get an exact estimate of the development costs of your project.

2. What are the advantages of custom developing LIMS?

There are a number of off the shelf laboratory management software, lab information systems and laboratory information management software which are readily available in the market.

However, most of them would either have a host of features that you likely won’t use at all but still pay for, or would have a basic version of software that you have to pay additional fees to upgrade for the features you want. Custom developing LIMS for your laboratory allows for a tailored software product based on your specific needs without having to overpay for features you won’t use or spend extra money on the features that you need added.

4. What is the difference between LIS and LIMS?

Laboratory Information System (LIS) and Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) are two related informatics software which vary in their function. LIS is primarily patient based and stores and manages patients' data and their test results in a hospital or a private laboratory.

LIMS on the other hand is more batch/sample centric and works better for groups of records that need to be processed at once.

6. What are the advantages of LIMS software?

Here are the major advantages of including laboratory management software in your lab.

  1. Automation of repetitive tasks leading to streamlining of workflows
  2. Reduced paperwork and elimination of chances of human transcription errors
  3. Automated reporting leading to increased productivity
  4. Integrating with other software to increase process efficiency
  5. Inventory management and tracking
  6. Improved workflow and data management
