Graphite, first Bika LIMS theme

Graphite by Naralabs is a Diazo theme compatible  with Bika Health 3.1.7, improving its usability and user experience further, delivering a visually appealing and clean design that maximises Plone's work-space, quick access to most of the LIS features with minimum clicks, and dynamic view loads. Graphite video demonstrationInstallation instructions.
