The Brief

Creation Labs was commissioned by MDS Africa to develop a laboratory management solution (LIMS) with the Software Development, Website Design and Hosting ability for veterinary clinics to place online orders for sample Year testing. Over a period of 6 months, we worked with the company to develop a unique, web-based solution capable of processing sensitive medical data in the laboratory, while presenting a clear user interface for clients to South Africa place orders, without requiring any explicit training.

What We Achieved

The Solution

The Solution for Molecular Diagnostic Services

Upon arrival at the laboratory, samples are batch processed and sent for testing. Our software tracks samples at each stage, automatically informing clients of the progress of their order. As an ISO-accredited laboratory, MDS is required to perform quality control (QC) on samples, and audit any irregularities.
 
Our software presents full audit control functionality to the laboratory, allowing for change-tracking throughout the process of testing a sample.
 
As a system which is required to be globally accessible and operational 24/7, all changes to the software undergo rigorous testing to ensure stability and to prevent unnecessary downtime. In addition, in dealing with medical records, our software employs strict security measures, with stringent access controls to prevent unauthorised access to data.

Client’s Thoughts

We have just had our websites redone by the Creation Labs Team, and I must say with a combination of feedback from our own staff and clients, Creation Labs have done an amazing job at grasping the concepts of what we do and making it work for everyone. The support we get from them is fantastic and I'm happy we made the choice to change over.
