BIMS Benchmark

A Benchmark of Biobank Information Management Systems

CTMM TraIT has recently performed a benchmark on Biobank Information Management Systems (BIMS). A BIMS is an ICT system that facilitates the “check-in”, “check-out”, and sample tracking of collected biomaterials. The main functionality of a BIMS is sample management.The aim of this benchmark is to give an overview of the BIMS used in large (academic) research institutes in the Netherlands. This document provides a comprehensive inventory of the available BIMS plus their strengths and weaknesses.

Please find the  document specifying the minimal requirements for a BIMS used to produce the benchmark.
