Despite of differences in the manifold laboratory tasks in environmental control, food safety and health control these sectors belonging to public authorities are covered and controlled through LABS/Q LIMS, with a workflow starting at sampling and going over documentation of the inspection to the final result and graphical evaluation. Inspection requests can be entered manually into the LIMS, or downloaded from other business-relevant software layers via interfaces and may directly trigger inspection order planning. Sampling and request-coordinated inspections are suggested by the LIMS and can be changed or confirmed manually by authorized users. Processing of the inspection is automated as far as possible in order to achieve reliable results. Evaluations and reports can be automatically generated and forwarded, completed manually or reworked as forced by the inspection order.
