The HPA data management system
A dedicated laboratory information management system (LIMS) was developed to handle the flow of samples in the HPA workflow, allowing thousands of samples to be processed daily. The HPA LIMS is a web-based, state-of-the-art platform and handles all the steps in the program, including production, analysis, and validation. All data processed by the LIMS are stored, including the noncompressed images. Visualization of the data is made both internally and externally through the HPA portal. The LIMS system is constantly updated to meet the needs of the program.
