Autoscribe Informatics took the opportunity in a recent webinar to discuss the much-misunderstood subject of LIMS validation. Within regulated environments LIMS validation is a vital process, and yet is a subject that is open to many different interpretations. Regulatory bodies throughout the world, such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), require that software systems be tested and proven to work as intended. LIMS validation is therefore essential within such regulated environments to ensure data integrity and prove compliance. The need for validation is also enshrined in various international standards including, for example, ISO 17025 General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories.
