BlazeLIMS For Small Labs /Enterprises
It is a matter of fact that most labs are small businesses or small entities within a larger business. Nevertheless, the LIMS requirments for a small lab are no less comprehensive than for the larger lab, as the processes they employ are far more alike than they are different. BlazeLIMS is ideally suited to the smaller lab, as it meets the requirements of both large and small labs of all types. However, more than 80% of small labs continue to rely on manual data management methods. Respondents to a recent LinkedIn survey gave three major reasons why they were not automating with a LIMS:
- LIMS acquisition is too costly and time consuming.
- Risks of no real payoff and project failure are not acceptable.
- Getting started is difficult.
BlazeLIMS removes these barriers in a variety of ways.

- This process does not short circuit due diligence or achieving a best buy, but rather ensures them in a far more efficient way.
