2023-01-10 Automatic Your Pipeline With Workflows In Labii LIMS


An automatic workflow is a series of automated tasks that are triggered by specific events or conditions. It is a way to streamline and optimize processes by eliminating manual steps and allowing tasks to be completed faster and more accurately. One of the main benefits of using a workflow is increased efficiency. By automating tasks, you can save time and resources that can be better spent on more high-value activities. Workflows can also help to improve accuracy and consistency, as they eliminate the potential for human error. Additionally, workflows can help to improve communication and collaboration within a team, as they provide a clear and transparent record of the progress and status of tasks. Overall, using an automatic workflow can help to improve the efficiency, accuracy, and transparency of processes within an organization.

With Labii LIMS, you can create custom workflows that automate tasks and streamline your processes. No more wasting time on manual data entry or chasing down team members for updates. Labii LIMS provides a clear and transparent record of the progress and status of your research, so you can stay organized and on track.

  4. Provide name and description of the backup

  5. Click Submit button

Trigger Labii workflow

If the trigger is defined, the workflow will be executed automatically.

  1. Record created, triggered by the creation of a record.

  2. Record updated, triggered when a record is updated.

  3. Interval schedule, triggered by an interval schedule.

  4. Crontab schedule, triggered by an crontab schedule.

Furthermore, you can manually trigger workflows using the following methods:

Workflow applications in LIMS

There are many potential use cases for workflows in a laboratory information management system (LIMS). Here are a few examples:

  1. Sample tracking: Workflows can be used to automate the tracking of samples as they move through the laboratory, including tasks such as sample receiving, preparation, analysis, and storage.

  2. Data management: Workflows can be used to automate data entry, validation, and analysis, helping to ensure the accuracy and consistency of data.

  3. Protocol execution: Workflows can be used to automate the execution of experimental protocols, including tasks such as equipment setup, sample preparation, and data collection.

  4. Quality control: Workflows can be used to automate quality control processes, including tasks such as sample testing, data review, and release/rejection decisions.

  5. Reporting: Workflows can be used to automate the generation of reports and other deliverables, including tasks such as data analysis, formatting, and review.

Overall, workflows can be used to automate a wide range of tasks within a LIMS, helping to streamline processes and improve efficiency and accuracy.
