The LinkedIn LIMS Circus group aims to be informative, entertaining and provocative, towards the witty standard set by Slashdot. Join up and drop your pennies! 


Social media hype notwithstanding, useful shared information can be found and contributed to on otherwise business driven LinkedIn's lab related groups, speed reading with hot air detectors on.

Laboratory Accreditation and QC groups, with less proprietary ownership, carry more information rich posts. LIMS specific groups suffer from sterile political correctness and, much more so, vested group ownership that inhibits freedom of expression. 

Dispelling FOSS FUD since 2002
