diaLIMS is a comprehensive software solution which is suitable for laboratories of different industries. However, we have developed a particular strength in the support of laboratories for doping control analysis.
diaLIMS supports every process in the doping control laboratory and concentrates on the performance of routine tasks. Numerous functions are integrated for this purpose. But even individual processes of the respective laboratories can be flexibly integrated in diaLIMS.
The WADA conforming, safe and simple documentation of samples from different matrices is fully guaranteed with diaLIMS.
diaLIMS is a professional data management system in which particular attention is paid to the reproducible documentation of information. However, data inputs can be made quickly and should be clearly displayed. Dialogs help the user to enter data in many occasions. Wizard dialogs and macros simplify tasks that need to be performed regularly - including necessary plausibility checks.
To restrict access to certain data, we provide a flexible and configurable authorization system. Changes can only be made if the respective employee is approved for the area of work or the analysis method. If necessary, only department heads have to confirm every analytical result.
A configurable audit trail system allows data to be traced system-wide - including user, time stamp and before/after value.
The paths taken by a sample through the laboratory can be precisely documented in diaLIMS. The first step is to describe the routes of the incoming shipments and later the processing and storage of individual samples (A- / B-sample, aliquot). The position of each sample can be determined precisely by the integrated storage management. The path of a sample can be traced in detail from the receipt to its potential long-term storage and disposal.
Various export functions are available to support reporting for positive, atypical and negative samples. An interface to ADAMS makes it easy to upload sample batches of any size into the WADA online-portal. You can choose between complete transfers (taking into account the requirements of the current technical documents), updates (e. g. after confirmation analyses) and transfer of blood pass information. diaLIMS.adsx (Anti-Doping-Sample-eXport) is an independent export format within diaLIMS, which can provide data for TAs that are not connected to ADAMS.
Measured values can be imported in diaLIMS via a configurable standard import function. Files are processed in Excel format. The structure is only roughly defined. Various settings can adapt the import function to the file format provided by the lab.
This allows the laboratory to connect any number of analyzers to diaLIMS via a single interface.
Additional logic within the interfaces (recognition of valid measurements in blood analysis, indication messages when gender-specific limiting values are exceeded in the steroid profile, etc.) can be implemented individually in the import functions.
diaLIMS has been used for more than ten years in a renowned WADA-accredited doping control laboratory. Regular changes in this environment - through optimization and modification of laboratory internal processes or updated technical documents - are a matter of course for us and are supported in diaLIMS as fast as possible.
Our particular strength is project management. Project managers and developers are thoroughly familiarized with the complex subject of doping analysis and the special characteristics in this environment. The specific vocabulary of the WADA environment is just as familiar to us as the processes from sample collection to the procedure of certain screening methods. In this way, we always guarantee optimal consulting for the implementation of processes and the development of extensions in our software.
New requirements for data transmission to the ADAMS can always be realized at short notice due to the existing contact to the software developers of WADA in Canada.
