is a laboratory information management system suitable for small
SLIMS is geared toward chemoinformatics and biological assays but can
extended with new datatypes.
SLIMS is completly open source.
MAC OS/X Download
Important MAC OS/X update. You no longer need to download wxPython if you download SLIMS 1.3. (This is the slims.dmg file in the downloads section) Please update to this version as it fixes many MAC related issues.
SLIMS is now available for Mac OS/X! Download it from sourceforge, see installing SLIMS for more information.
SLIMS Update Note
SLIMS-1.2b updates SLIMS-1.2. Export to SDF incorrectly output a large
amount of compressed data in the SDF file which caused some compound readers
to operate incorrectly. This has been corrected. Installthis over
SLIMS-1.2. That is install SLIMS-1.2 and then SLIMS-1.2b
The slims-1.1 installation ommited the add experiment tutorial. This has
been corrected in the slims-1.2 installer. To use the new tutorial,
you should install the new version. You will not need to uninstall the
old version of SLIMS.
Opening tutorial databases now automatically open the tutorial
walkthrough. You no longer have to search through the
documentation to find the tutorial! Also, when browsing for files
from a tutorial database, the default folder is now the tutorial
data folder, making the necessary data easier to find.
TIP OF THE DAY
To plot dilution series data, make sure that the whole row is selected
clicking on the "Plot Dilution" command.
