Our unique combination of energy sector experience and lab informatics expertise has supported numerous LIMS, ELN, LES, and CDS projects, resulting in lower operating costs, better laboratory practices, and data efficiency improvements for laboratories across this industry.

From sample management to data reporting, environmental laboratories have a specific set of requirements for their lab informatics tools, but there are an overwhelming number of LIMS on today’s market that claim to be perfect for the water or environmental lab. CSols experts have experience with both the needs of an environmental laboratory and the products that work best in both the government and private sectors.

Market demands, new regulatory requirements, and increasing supply chain pressure mean that food and beverage businesses need to leverage every available tool to stay ahead of the game. CSols has experience supporting both R&D and QC labs at food and beverage clients through the informatics planning and implementation process. CSols has helped food and beverage clients harmonize and optimize lab processes, more easily prove regulatory compliance, integrate enterprise systems, accelerate R&D processes with a range of laboratory informatics tools.

The pressure to produce fast, accurate, and high quality data is unrelenting for modern forensics labs. Well-implemented laboratory informatics tools help improve chain of custody, support scientists in the field, and provide faster turnaround times. CSols has extensive experience with applying these tools to support crime labs’ informatics initiatives and understands the science behind the forensic results.

Pharmaceutical manufacturing and R&D, biotechnology discovery and scale-up, high throughput clinical and genetic testing, pharmaceutical analytical services, and blood and tissue banks are all areas of the life sciences where CSols experts have deep and broad experience. Whether optimizing an SAP-LIMS integration, keeping up with regulatory changes, or validating a new computer system, CSols experts can support the informatics project in your life sciences lab.

Whether a quality lab or a development lab, managing data in a medical device laboratory can be even more complex than in a traditional pharmaceutical laboratory. CSols has experience navigating regulatory and data challenges in the medical device industry, especially with LIMS and ELN implementation and validation.

Today’s mining and mineral laboratories are seeing the value and cost savings that implementing a laboratory informatics system can bring. Test requests, analyses, methods management, and results reporting are work streams commonly supported by LIMS and LES. CSols’ experience with these systems can help mining and minerals operations increase efficiency and lower costs.

Oil and gas laboratory testing can be complex and require hundreds of data points to produce one results. This type of laboratory presents a unique challenge to an informatics solution, especially when interfaces to enterprise and process systems are required. CSols has helped multi-national oil and gas companies select, manage, and implement LIMS across the globe and can bring this vast experience to your project as well.
