About MSC

Mountain States Consulting began as an information systems consulting firm in 1986, and recently celebrated 25 years of continuous growth and success (see MSC Celebrates Twenty-Fifth Anniversary).

In 1995, following the success of the first MSC-LIMS installation (see A Small Lab Develops A Laboratory Information Management System, Water Online Times, December 1996), the firm focused solely on improving and expanding MSC-LIMS.

Today, our business' only product is MSC-LIMS and our services are devoted to helping our clients successfully implement the system. We recently celebrated 20 successful years developing and supporting MSC-LIMS (MSC-LIMS Celebrates 20th Anniversary), and our Business Plan is to continue improving the product.
