The idea behind Open-LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) is to create an Open Source project management suite which is organism- and structure-independent and can be expanded by additional extensions.

One of the main aims of Open-LIMS is to image all IT-supported laboratory processes with one software. This software increases the efficiency of laboratory processes. The members become more productive and save time by managing, viewing or finding relevant data.



The concept is based on a work-flow circle with different experiment phases.

The general phases are included in Open-LIMS. The possibility of the post experimental analysis is not included in Open-LIMS. Post experimental analysis will be included by additional extensions because analysis depends on experimental structure.
