The U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) is conducting market research for a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS).
Based in Fort Detrick, Maryland, the mission of USAMRIID is to conduct basic and applied research on biological pathogens in biocontainment laboratories.
The organization seeks an integrated network and information management system to meet the demands of high-content data-generating instrumentation that enable biological systems to be examined in increasingly complex and comprehensive ways.
USAMRIID researchers must additionally comply with DoD security requirements, which are often incompatible with the software and operating systems required to operate the instruments and analyses. This often results in inefficiencies as researchers are burdened with integration of datasets from disparate functional areas, manual execution of downstream analyses and manual data management.
The current effort seeks to create a system in which a project can be managed effectively across multiple functional areas, deliver workflow tasks to production scientists and technicians, report status and results to scientists and program managers, and reduce the amount of administrative burden on USAMRIID personnel so more resources can be spent executing research.
