Alltech has deployed GoLIMS across its research divisions to streamline data capture, eliminate data silos, facilitate collaboration and information sharing, reduce complexity and accelerate its research. As opposed to traditional methods of data sharing, global collaboration is enhanced through the instantaneous nature of the cloud storage system and electronic laboratory notebook. Meanwhile, data transcription errors are mitigated since the data is entered directly into the system at first transcription.
"We have implemented GoLIMS technology throughout our global research network because of its extensive capability to perform research management in a traceable and compliant manner," said Dr. Karl Dawson , chief scientific officer at Alltech. "GoLIMS establishes an infrastructure for centralized research data management, enabling our researchers to easily collaborate and protect sensitive intellectual capital."
