Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) for Failure Analysis Labs

FA-LIMS is the ideal LIMS system for Failure Analysis and Materials Characterization Labs

Unlike other commercial Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), which focus primarily on chemical analysis and healthcare, Quartz FA-LIMS is designed to address the image-intensive nature and complex reporting requirements of Failure Analysis and Materials Characterization labs.


  • FA-LIMS is a feature rich, highly configurable software package for laboratory management that resides on your servers and saves time for all lab members, customers and management
  • We configure your LIMS software to match the desired workflow and terminology of your lab
  • The integration of our PCI software and our LIMS software takes the concept and value of a LIMS system to a level that you cannot develop on your own
  • Just based on increased Lab productivity, the FA-LIMS system will pay for itself in 12 months

FA-LIMS + PCI = Really Moving the Needle on Lab Performance

  • Easy, fast and accurate uploading of all types of data and analysis results into the FA-LIMS system
  • Even more effective with barcode scanners at sample check-in and instruments
  • Time Stamps — Tracks times by Job, Session, Sample, Instrument and Analyst — provides metrics for FA-LIMS Lab Management Reports
  • FA-LIMS is the only LIMS system that can time stamp all activity of your jobs as they move through your lab
  • Powerful Report Generator
  • Different ‘flavors’ of PCI for different types of instruments and other PCs
