The newest and most exciting area of diagnostics is growing rapidly and becoming a firm cornerstone of modern diagnostic testing. Currently, we see molecular diagnostics labs involved in a small number of general areas of application, including:

No doubt the areas of applications will steadily increase as additional uses for diagnostics at the DNA and RNA level become apparent. To meet the challenges of a relatively young and growing clinical sector like MolDx, it's important that your lab have the right LIMS/LIS solution - one that is powerful, robust and dependable, yet versatile and flexible enough to handle advancements and changes in techniques, devices/instruments and more.


The primary component of the LabLynx LIMS Solution for the Molecular Diagnostics Lab is webLIMS itself. The webLIMS clinical LIS is optimized for quick functions and ease of use, so results are turned around as soon as they are ready. Speed is of the essence, yes, but so is accuracy. Barcoded labels, auto-filled fields and automatically-generated unique specimen IDs all help minimize transcription errors and maintain peak accuracy. And you can achieve the best accuracy and speed possible, meeting all CLIA HITECH standards and more by interfacing your instruments directly with webLIMS.

With LabLynx’s cloud-hosted solutions, you get all of this and more. And there’s no additional charge for as many client logins as you need so they can enter test requests and/or access their reports using the webLIMS online portal.

And as a commercial contract laboratory, adaptability can be key. Whether you are dedicated to a regular single client or small set of clients or cater to a wider range, the ability to meet the testing needs that are sent your way quickly and reliably can build a good reputation that means more business. LabLynx supports you whatever tests you do, and its great configurability means you can add and update tests and processes whenever you want to - without costly development.
