Bika Lab Systems

Intelligent laboratory information management:
Bika Lab Systems was established in 2002 by Lemoene Smit and Inus Scheepers, identifying a need for affordable and easy to use information systems and instrument interfaces for small and medium size laboratories

Web clients were becoming popular but no LIMS was web based, merely web enabled legacy systems. And none of them open source

Bika positions herself as a lab system service provider, implementing and supporting innovative LIMSs customised to individual requirement

Programming is outsourced to Upfront Systems, proven developers who are also responsible for technical support. Bika herself takes care of system analysis and design, project management, testing, quality control and customer support. If it has to, systems administration
