LIMS Supplier Survey 2021

Responses from the SCRIPT reporters survey in 2020 highlighted several key aspects that users felt were deficient in current laboratory information management systems (LIMS). Using these as a focus, SCRIPT undertook a LIMS supplier survey between September and December 2021 in the form of one-to-one interviews between SCRIPT team members and representatives from each of the ten LIMS providers identified in the user survey. There was 100% response rate from LIMS providers. This information was entered into an online survey from which analysis was undertaken to explore the status of current LIMS. The main findings are outlined in this summary report.
