15 – Free and Open source LIMS : Laboratory information management system programs and projects
LIMS : is standing for ” Laboratory Information Management System ” , which is a software designed to manage laboratory data , laboratory work-flow , results validation , archiving the results in simple accessible database . There are many open source licensed LIMS , some are built for general medical laboratories , and others are built for special laboratories , here we assembled a list of open source LIMS , in order to distribute the power of open source among labs .

6 – YourLabData :
Your Lab Data is a free web-based LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System), aimed at a typical small molecular biology laboratory. It allows users to manage their chemicals, fridges, freezers, boxes, strains, plasmids or glycerol’s, oligos / primers and much more.
7 – HalX :
Open source web based LIMS ” laboratory Information Management System ” , Still in Alpha stage , developed to keep track of all the experimental details of any type of biochemical, molecular biology or structural biology experiment .
8 – OMIL :
OMIL Web application written in PHP & MySQL, it was created to replace a paper form filled by the users of laboratory requests for travel orders. OMIL is very convenient for people located in different buildings.
9 – Science Lab Inventory & Order Management :
Science Laboratory Inventory and Orders Management System: more suitable for school’s science laboratories to manage stored items (chemical and equipment) and add a way to order them on-line for science lessons and practical experiments. Built with PHP and uses MySQL for database . released under
10 – LabStoRe :
LabStoRE : is a web based LIMS ” Laboratory Information management System built with PHP and uses MySQL database . Its modular, multi account-based, inventory or LIMS system that provides a way to collect, maintain, present and archive information on laboratory stocks and records.
11 – LabLog :
The LabLog is a free tool to document projects running in a lab and to manage experimentally obtained data and its metadata. LabLog interfaces to a mySQL database that stores this information. Allows easy searching and retrieval of once recorded data.
12 – FlowCytometry LIMS :
The Flow Cytometry Laboratory Information Management System (FlowLIMS) is a web-based software system that gives users the ability to create and manage experiment protocols for the DiVa and FACScan flow cytometers
13 – protLIMS :
protLIMS is a Laboratory Information Management System dedicated to studies in the realm of proteomics. The goal of the prototype version is to develop the system to the point in the analytical workflow where samples are prepared for mass spectroscopy. This entails recording of biological sample data, sample preparation, protein separation/resolution, and isolated protein sample preparation, etc.
Built with Java and designed to be web based , run in a J2EE-compliant application server, uses a relational database for data management and the server file system for file storage.
