Building on Your Lab Infrastructure to Increase Turnaround Time

If you work in a database lab, STACS-DB Enterprise™ provides sample reception to manage sample submissions throughout the entire life cycle, including data entry and a number of powerful modules such as submission scanning and management of submissions duplicates, rejects, and expungements.

If you work in a casework lab, you may use a LIMS to track evidence and maintain the chain of custody. Whether it is commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software or something your lab developed internally, its purpose is to track evidence throughout your lab. It’s a safe bet that your LIMS was not designed to optimize the processing of DNA samples to give you incredible throughput, save you time and avoid incidents. Only the STACS® family of products is designed to do that. STACS-CW Enterprise integrates with your LIMS so that you can save time by eliminating duplicate data entry

To learn how STACS solutions differ from a LIMS, Take the LIMS Challenge.
