Commercial-Off-The Shelf (COTS) laboratory informatics systems generally require configuration and customization to meet your business objectives and requirements.
Configuration is generally defined as tailoring the ELN or LIMS solution utilizing the COTS vendor’s tools and templates. This does not require any programming. Examples of configuration tasks include the definition of user profiles and users, data elements such as sample types, tests, templates, spreadsheet, workflows, business rules, and event triggers. Customization, on the other hand, is the modifying of the COTS LIMS or ELN system through programming. Examples of LIMS customization and ELN customization include the development of new functionality, extension of system functions, and programmatic interfaces to instruments and other systems.
Best practices dictates that when implementing a laboratory information system that the amount of customization be minimized whenever feasible in order to maximize long term supportability of the system. Therefore, intimate knowledge and expertise of the capabilities, features, and tools of the particular LIMS or ELN system being implemented is critical to your project’s success.
