Rapid Micro Biosystems Announces Availability of Bi-Directional LIMS Integration

Rapid Micro Biosystems announced the general availability of two-way integration to laboratory information management system (LIMS) through its Growth Direct System. The new capability allows quality control microbiology labs to save time and reduce errors associated with entry of final test results of environmental monitoring, bioburden and sterility tests. The bi-directional LIMS integration uses widely supported comma-separated (CSV) files to communicate, allowing integration with most LIMS systems. Due to the flexibility provided by the communication method, integration is flexible and can be aligned to the specific needs of the quality control microbiology lab both initially and in the future. The integration supports the use of LIMS or Growth Direct created barcodes that are applied to Growth Direct Cassettes. After sampling, the cassettes are loaded into the Growth Direct System, which performs the incubation, detection and enumeration of colonies. Final results are automatically uploaded to the LIMS system. This eliminates the need for microbiologists to manually count plates and key the colony forming unit (CFU) values into the LIMS system, reducing the chance of a keying error.
