LLMS – Lyons Laboratory Management System - LIMS for Material, Textile & Apparel testing

lisadmin on Wed, 06/07/2017 - 06:37


Lyons Laboratory Management System (LLMS) streamlines the material, garment and fabric laboratory testing process. It is a cloud-based mobile and web LIMS system that is designed for quick yet comprehensive throughput of testing jobs in material and apparel testing laboratory. From a built-in library of standard test methods, technicians enter product test results from which pass/fail determinations are automatically performed and reported using a versatile, robust reporting engine. LLMS also includes entry of test results from outsourced laboratories, remote job requests from customers, and extensive data analysis capabilities. In addition, users may easily view the distribution of work within the laboratory at specific steps within the testing process as well as turn time reporting.  LLMS LIMS is a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) that helps you manage your laboratory data easily and efficiently. Store, process, report and analyze your data in a secure cloud based environment.

Textile and apparel manufacturing laboratory processes traditionally are very labor intensive. LLMS increases efficiency by simplifying data capture and automating data analysis. LLMS swiftly creates flexible final testing evaluation reports. LLMS also integrates data from external database systems. LLMS is fully user managed and has flexible and comprehensive query capabilities of test, supplier, and laboratory information. The system is easily customized to use non-standard testing methods and test procedures, and employs non-proprietary technology for its database and code infrastructure. As with all Lyons software systems, nothing is “hard-coded”, and content is secured and fully managed by appropriate manufacturer’s staff.

LLMS conducts a plethora of qualitative and quantitative tests according to recognized industry and international standards such as AATCC, ASTM, CTS, FTMS, MER, and TAPPI.  Whatever standards or regulations that apply to the kinds of materials you are testing, rest assured your LLMS supports them. Here you can find a list of standards which are supported by LLMS.


Potential Benefits of LLMS Implementation
When looking at potential benefits of installing a LLMS, most ultimately result in saving money. This savings can not only help justify the decision, but also underscore the need to prioritize rolling out certain critical features first.

Installing a LLMS can help your company:

  • Increase number of samples processed
  • Decrease sample processing time
  • Cut number of analyst hours needed for processing
  • Reduce error rates
  • Reduce frequency of process inspection
  • Speed release of manufactured products
  • Reduce customer service needs by offering self-service, read-only access to sample status and test results

In addition, a few intangible benefits include:

  • Achieving and demonstrating compliance more easily
  • Detecting and correcting errors earlier
  • Improving customer satisfaction


The system may be configured for use behind a company firewall, or hosted as a web-based system. All that is required for user access is a Tablets (Android or Apple iPad),  or Windows browser, and access to the LLMS cloud based system. Product testing data may be recorded from outsourced and in-house testing locations. Security and content is completely controlled by user(s) with system administration rights and privileges. A final report of test findings is created from a very flexible report generator that may include as much content as desired including imbedded images, attached documents, etc. Final test reports are electronically sent to product test requestors when a job is completed.


Sample management / accessioning / tracking

Good sample management processes are necessary to ensure sample integrity, data quality, and proper chain of custody. 

Laboratory management

Understanding the overhead and capacity that your team can support is key to determining timelines, reporting on turnaround times, and resourcing projects. You can review complete overview of samples that are queued and their status.

Workflow capabilities

Users can quickly build workflows which map to actual laboratory processes, automating decisions and actions and reducing the need for user intervention. Labs can easily adapt to new methods and process changes.

Mobile LIMS

LLMS – Lyons Laboratory Management System mobile LIMS application makes features available via tablet, wherever there is an available internet/network connection, so you can take the LIMS with you to execute methods and collect and process samples.

Dashboards and data visualization

Data can be visualized in the system through reports and dashboards enabling laboratories to track overall laboratory performance and assigned work.

Reporting and data analytics

Information in the LIMS can be reported on, shared, analyzed, and audited. All relationships and metadata are captured, enabling users to work with data in context.

Data archival

Ensure proper electronic records retention and data archival to comply with the latest requirements.

Collaborative work environment

Collect and share data securely in real-time with collaborators in your lab or across the globe.

Cloud or on-premises deployment

The option to deploy using a LLMS – Lyons Laboratory Management System managed infrastructure including servers, OS and database, backup, disaster recovery and information security monitoring, reducing initial hardware and ongoing IT costs.


Cybersecurity is critical to ensure data integrity and business continuity. Ensure secure data and system access on premises or in the cloud.
