Thermo Fisher Scientific”slaboratory information management systems (LIMS) offer efficiencies,improved productivity and regulatory compliance for the modern miningindustry. LIMS are a component in the day-to-day management of a modernmining operation, not only to monitor the quality of the mine’s output,but also to drive increased productivity and help the mining operationscomply with myriad regulatory requirements related to everything fromdocumentation and instrument calibration to environmental monitoring.Thermo”s SampleManager LIMS offers the modern mining industry acentralized system to access data and extract information, enablingeffective management of laboratory operations. The LIMS providesevidence and documentation to support laboratory compliance with ISO17025, allowing full traceability of personnel and procedures enteredand facilitating the review of all incidents, corrective actions,non-conforming results and other events. SampleManager LIMS alsoincludes built-in functionality to handle environmental monitoring.Within SampleManager, environmental monitoring of key areas of thelaboratory can be scheduled, and validation of methods allowslaboratory managers to achieve continuous compliance with ISO 17025.
