COVIDLiMS is Key to Managing a Pandemic

COVIDLiMS is a complete LiMS – pre-configured with SARS-CoV-2 assay methods, but ready to expand to any other types of testing. It’s the quick-response answer for labs: whenever any new infectious disease appears, simply add the assays you need yourself and begin testing immediately. In fact, COVIDLiMS supports absolutely any type of testing at all and comes with a host of general features to fully manage your laboratory data – safely, securely, and reliably – no matter how your business grows.

If your laboratory or health care organization isn’t equipped to manage all the data points precisely, and handle the volume generated by outbreaks such as the novel coronavirus, business - and even lives - can be at stake.

COVIDLiMS Manages All Laboratory Information

The central component is the COVID Laboratory Information Management System, or LIMS, which manages all laboratory information. Its cloud database powers the entire solution. The other components are a sample information collection kit, issue management and support portal, health provider portal, community social media site, and exclusive integrating tool - all sitting on LabLynx’s advanced Next Generation Informatics platform,

How It Works

COVID Sample Information Collection (C-SIC) Kit

Sample Information Collection

Let’s say a company wants to have all of their employees tested, maybe even on a regular basis as a way to keep on top of steps they need to take to contain a novel coronavirus. They can all be entered manually to the myLabCare web portal, or transferred in from HR records. The Sample Information Collection Kit accesses that, and verifies it by scanning official IDs, then prints a barcoded label for each sample as it is taken. Nothing handwritten, no typos or mistakes. The SiCKIT can also operate independently, allowing ad hoc sampling information collection to be uploaded to the system.

Accessioned into COVIDLiMS

Accessioned into COVIDLiMS

The sample is transported to the lab, where its label is scanned and all registration information brought up as the sample is accessioned into the COVIDLiMS to be processed.

COVIDLiMS Provides:

  1. CLIA Compliance
  2. A Flexible, Easily Configurable Workflow
  3. High Throughput Handling
  4. Sample Pooling Capability
  5. Full Integration and Automation Capability
  6. Interfacing to Billing Services [Billing Interface]


Connecting All the Components

LabVia connects all the components with the database, including the lab’s instruments - creating a secure, closed, automated system that transfers data where they need to go: accurately, completely and immediately. The LIMS generates the results report, and LabVia sends it to the myLabCare health provider web portal.

COVID – Laboratory Information Management System

Maintaining Accuracy

The LIMS is also hugely important in maintaining accuracy in testing in other ways - first and foremost in molecular testing. PCR-based testing is complex and its accuracy depends on each step being done properly. COVIDLiMS can mandate each procedure, ensuring they are all done properly and in the correct sequence. With results entered automatically, direct from the instruments, errors are reduced to the smallest amount possible, or eliminated entirely. And any presumptive results can automatically trigger a confirmation test.
