Environmental laboratory practices were the initial focus of BTLIMS. Started in 2002 and completed as a fully functional LIMS in 2006, BTLIMS was originally designed to help with the regulatory environment faced by the environmental laboratory industry.
Our staff consists of former laboratory and IT personnel that have many years of personal experience with environmental laboratories. We closely monitor regulatory issues and new TNI (NELAC - www.nelac-institute.org) developments to make sure that BTLIMS is perfectly suited for and up-to-date with, the environmental industry.
Over the past 15 years, a LIMS has become a necessity for laboratories in the environmental industry as regulations and data requirements call for better data management. BTLIMS is set up to work with the most common instrumentation found within environmental laboratories, including ICP, ICP-MS, GC, GC-MS, IC, and more.. As instrumentation has improved, the amount of data generated and required to be properly processed and stored has exponentially increased. An efficient LIMS that is capable of processing this data effectively is vital to the smooth operation of a laboratory. In addition, the BTLIMS reporting engine allows for the easy creation of multiple report types, including various EDDs, state reports, and client-specific reports. These reports may be emailed, printed, and/or faxed based upon the requirements of the end-user.
"The goal of the industrial hygienist is to keep workers, their families, and the community healthy and safe. They play a vital part in ensuring that federal, state, and local laws and regulations are followed in the work environment." - American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) website (www.aiha.org).
Industrial hygiene (IH) is a critical part of our daily lives, even if we never see it. The laboratories that run these samples are critical in ensuring the health of millions. BTLIMS has been involved with the IH industry since its inception and offers a very versatile, bulletproof LIMS to help ensure data quality, validity, and ease of access in an IH laboratory setting while following the stringent designs specified by the AIHA.
