Bika LIMS Products

The LIMS Landscape

Bika LIMS does chemistry very well, to ISO 17025 standard, and with the correct configuration, the same for many other disciplines - different tests, methods and sample types. Most labs only interface their instruments and configure the rest for a good fit

Some lab disciplines share configurations, the same analysis methods and Analyses and functional specifics

Earlier the different disciplines were applied as customisations in different Bika LIMS branches. All but the very specific are now consolidated and modularised in mature flexible configuration and add-ons that achieve the desired differentiation. 20 Years of continuous user feedback and development went into it

Don't do mixed discipline LIMS

Regardless of which LIMS, mixed discipline labs make for complex configurations having to differentiate analyses and methods for different sample types

In such cases it is better to run a LIMS instance per discipline, sharing a Client database. There are no licence fees and Bika can be deployed on multiple servers for unlimited users without additional cost
