Upgrade to MSU DCPAH laboratory information management system
On Monday, April 24, 2017, the Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health will implement an upgrade to our laboratory information management system (LIMS). The LIMS is an essential tool used for managing our laboratory workflow, from receiving samples to performing assays and generating results. We do not expect this upgrade to impact clients in any visible way--it will not change how we test samples or report results.
