MSC-LIMS Version 2.1 Improves User Interface

JACKSON, Wyoming—January 1, 2000—Mountain States Consulting, LLC, announces vast improvements in the user interface with its newly released MSC-LIMS Version 2.1. Making the best possible use of Microsoft's Access 97, Version 2.1 adds powerful new features to the system.

Users who enjoy the efficiency of MSC-LIMS' Excel interface will value Version 2.1's updated Excel import interface, which allows importing formatted results directly into Result Type and Result Value fields, and new facilities to use Excel templates to track data.

Standard query controls have been changed to a tabbed control with additional criteria controls; wildcard pattern matching is now available for sample ID, notes, conclusions and customer sample ID. A "custom criteria" tab is now available for site-specific query criteria controls. More flexibility in fine-tuning queries during invoice report setup, easier scripting of frequently-used labels, a simple check box to isolate inactive locations and sample types, detailed validation messages, an expanded audit trail, check boxes to exclude Internal Data analyses from reports, and more extensive options for sorting are only a few of the new version's capabilities.

MSC-LIMS provides sample tracking, scheduling, and warning, quality control samples and control charts, method development, instrument and procedure lists and calendars, and employee training and certification records. MSC-LIMS also includes barcoding capabilities, bench sheet, work sheet and chain-of-custody generation, data access security roles, and EPA audit trail.

Minimum system requirements are a Pentium 166 MHz Processor running Windows 95/98/NT4, 32MB RAM, and 800 x 600 small font resolution monitor. MSC-LIMS is available in single- and multi-user versions. Base system includes a single user license, barcode printer, laser scanner and one year technical support and software updates.

Founded in 1986, Mountain States Consulting, LLC is devoted to supporting and enhancing MSC-LIMS, its Windows-based laboratory information management system, and to helping its clients successfully implement the system.
