LIMS integrates Accession details (Holding Room, Necropsy Observations & Tests Requested), Testing details (Virus Isolation, Bacteriology, Histopathology, Serology, Molecular Testing, Monoclonal, Special Tests, IBD Challenge & Research Project), Inventory, Billing, Storage of images or files for reference, Send Reports / Bills to Clients vide Email or Fax from the system, Generate Reports, Generate Worksheets to facilitate data entry work, Administrative tools to create users and assign rights according to their roles, Database management utility (backup or restore) and Advanced Search option with Boolean Search options. Each activity involved has been thoroughly analyzed and automated to facilitate the day-to-day operations of a poultry Lab. This end-to-end automation coupled with advanced search features and detailed reporting capabilities make this a very effective tool for the poultry industry. Efforts are underway to report laboratory data to National Animal Health Laboratory Network (NAHLN) through secure HL7 reporting in real-time basis.
VMWI worked with the Poultry Lab of University of Delaware in understanding the work flow in a paper-based system and converted it to a desktop application. A few years later, VMWI upgraded it to a web-based application that was used by the states of Delaware and Maryland.
