43% of Laboratories Use a LIMS, Says New Report by Strategic Directions International

A new report from Strategic Directions International estimates that 43% of labs worldwide currently use a laboratory information management system, or LIMS.

Not only that, an estimated 44% plan to use one within the next two years. This is according to a new report, "The 2019 Market for Laboratory Software LIMS, CDS, MSS and Other Informatics," at The report covers the market for laboratory software, LIMS, chromatography data systems (CDS), mass spectrometry software (MSS), and other informatics products.

Laboratory information management systems are software packages designed to streamline workflow and manage information in the laboratory, with an eye toward regulatory compliance and simplifying lab management. Although the market for LIMS and other management software applications has been mature for several years now, new functionality such as increased integration and connectivity, along with increasing end-user adoption, is enabling disruptive changes to the business of lab management.

Increased user friendliness has been a significant driver in converting and retaining end-user adoption of LIMS. For lab personnel and management to trust their lab data and information with a new digital platform, they must feel comfortable using and controlling the system via its user interface. Furthermore, for LIMS adoption to be successful, all users in a lab must become proficient in the software's operation and use -- otherwise, the system will lose its intended purpose as being the central hub for all of the lab's digital information.

A second critical driver of LIMS end-user adoption will be the availability of systems that have superior integration and connectivity with third-party software and instrumentation. In contrast to the USB innovation, which allowed personal computers to connect to accessory hardware such as printers and monitors, lab instruments suffer from a lack of standardization due to the vast types of connections and data file types currently used by different vendors.

"The stereotypical image of a sleep-deprived postdoc, in the lab late at night, conducting experiments while simultaneously scribbling in a lab notebook, may one day be a thing of the past," said Ryan Harake, an analyst for Strategic Directions International and author of the report.

A LIMS with the versatility and flexibility to connect, read, store, and share data between instruments and software systems is of great value to labs. Additionally, cloud-based servers and mobile device connectivity are two more features you will more frequently see integrated into next-generation LIMS platforms.
