Who owns us? Seriously, I ask you this question as some food for thought.
In all these posts about the end of my job, some of you might be surprised that I’m only now writing about the LIMS. Me, too. U of M runs the LVS Biobanking solution which I knew before I had an inkling I would work there so I guarantee I’m not passing along any secrets, here. It was easy enough to see from reading people’s LinkedIn profiles so they’re not keeping it a secret.
Recently, with the biobanking initiatives many software vendors have, more systems appear to be including this sort of functionality. At the Boston LIMS/Laboratory Informatics meetings, I’ve had a couple occasions to see how a vendor has incorporated this functionality into their system or is providing a good plug-in for it.
