Some of the most popular discussions in the LIMS Forum

Posted by: John H. Jones

The LIMSforum is a user discussion group located on Linkedin.  The group has nearly 25,000 members, making it the largest and most popular user’s group devoted to all topics in LIMS and Laboratory Informatics.  If you are not already a member you can join it at  The group is open to everyone and the members are very helpful in answering questions and holding useful discussions.

Here is a list of some of the most popular and useful discussions:


There are tons of other great discussions going on in the group and there are a lot of job postings as well under the jobs tab.  The group is actively monitored and managed so that only valid, on-topic discussions take place in the discussion area while promotional postings are relegated to the “Promotions menu”.  This active, on-topic, non-commercial discussion group is what has made LIMSforum the largest and most popular discussion group within 2 years of it’s inception.

The LIMSforum was created on June 28, 2009 and as of the writing of this blog posting, it has 24,598 members and we are growing at about 1,500 new members per month.  Also there are a number of subgroups that are focused on things like Cloud Computing, Chromatography, Spectroscopy, Social Media, Healthcare, Life Sciences and more…

Be sure to check out all of these discussions and subgroups and feel free to post your own questions and invite others you know to join in.



  1. That’s great to hear that LIMS forum the user discussion group located on Linkedin has 25,000 members. Being a professional we wish there should be more such groups like this so that people may easily get educated being there.
