Implementation of Veterinary Laboratory Information System at The University of Adelaide

The University of Adelaide is one of the top universities worldwide and one of Australia’s most research-intensive institutions. With world-leading researchers, modern facilities and an innovative culture, they attract over 27,000 students from more than 90 countries.

Citadel Health are pleased to have implemented their market leading Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), EVOLUTION, within The University of Adelaide. EVOLUTION is a highly scalable and configurable Virtual Laboratory Information System designed to deliver a flexible service model that allows access anywhere, at any time. It provides an innovative and best practice approach to enterprise connected health, delivering a single unified pathology service with a mobile workforce unrestrained by geography.

As part of the LIMS implementation, Citadel Health customised EVOLUTION to meet the University’s requirements, providing a digital veterinary laboratory system, managed services and associated technical environments, automation of processes and data inputs supporting customised veterinarian pathology workflows.

Citadel Health also provided on-site training and remote support throughout the entire implementation and ‘go-live’ process. The system went live in June 2020 and the University is already seeing the benefits that the new system is having to the efficiency of their laboratory management.

Tracey Murnane, Laboratory Manager, The University of Adelaide, said,

“EVOLUTION has made an amazing difference to the way we manage our laboratory. We are happy with how this new system has improved the efficiency and accuracy within the laboratory.’’

Stephen Lynch, General Manager Citadel Health said,

“Our implementation of EVOLUTION into The University of Adelaide is our first veterinary specific implementation of EVOLUTION. We are pleased to have had the opportunity to work closely with the University in tailoring our system to meet their unique requirements.’’
