Benefits of PiMS to Scientists and Students
Monitors the location and use of valuable Samples. Records the details of Experiments.
Stores laboratory data in standardized formats, simplifying the search for experimental details.
Avoids the use of pre-defined workflows making it easier to record normal working practices, ad hoc experimental information and other unexpected data items.
Provides an overview of the work in progress for the laboratory head with access to details when necessary.
An Integrated Information solution
Avoids expensive errors caused by the cut-and-paste between applications and duplicate data entry.
