Microbiology Information Management System

The Microbiology Information Management System (MIMS®) provides a validated method of documenting and assessing facility operations.

By integrating features that not only record QC/EM tests and results, but also analyze and trend that data, MIMS ensures that your environmental control systems are operating as intended. These trends can provide valuable insight into the effectiveness of decontamination procedures, housekeeping practices, and personnel training, as well as identify the potential for microbial build-up during production.

Some of the key functions of MIMS include:
  • Support for a wide variety of predefined tests (i.e. particulate, microbial) as well as user defined tests (i.e. pH and chemical), including water testing
  • Generates worksheets (data sheets) and corresponding barcode labels to facilitate sample identification
  • Custom visual layouts of facilities and test sites
  • Store and display digital photographs and videos
  • Ability to generate e-mail notifications with optional historical data trend for "Alert Level" and "Action Level" conditions
  • Ability to generate e-mail notifications with optional historical data trend in the event that "flagged" organisms are identified
  • On-line review confirmation
  • Tracks media expiration
  • Tracks equipment calibration dates
  • User-defined report generator
Features that address the requirements of 21 CFR Part 11 include:
  • Custom levels of security that restrict access and data modifications. Permissions can be granted to only certain functions within the application, as well as to only certain buildings or areas within the database.
  • Electronic signature feature required for any inserts, updates, or deletions performed throughout the system
  • Security lock-out feature
  • Security time-out feature
