Laboratory Information Management System TerraLab – for laboratory and business

Nowadays it is hard to imagine the modern laboratory practice without a laboratory information system. But what sort of system is best? What processes must the system automate? What problems must it solve? For a laboratory the processes connected with sample registration, labeling, logistics and connection with analyzers, reducing the influence of human factor on diagnostics, as well as organization and control of laboratory work are the most important. But we should not forget about such important things for business as marketing, company image, personnel control, inventory accounting and financial analytics.
