Maximize lab productivity with barcode functionality, instrument integration, batch specimen processing and document imaging which allows you to scan and associate any type of document with a specimen or account.

Have your customers place orders from the ApolloLIMS Outreach Portal to drive efficiency, and, if required, configure your internal workflow to order confirmatory testing based on screening results.

For labs that have (or grow to) multiple performing locations, ApolloLIMS can scale to support your lab’s operations, easily adding users, instruments and new reports, as well as seamlessly exchanging order, result information and billing information as needed.

The State of Toxicology Testing

Changes in reimbursement, an intensely competitive environment, and regulatory scrutiny have shifted the landscape of toxicology testing. Still, drug testing remains a critically important service for government agencies, employers, and healthcare providers (particularly in the addiction treatment and pain management space). The best run tox labs today have adjusted to new reimbursement levels, developed a broad client base, controlled operating expenses, and built a solid technology foundation.

Addiction Treatment

The addiction treatment market is growing rapidly. The utilization of lab testing to monitor substance use is a critical component of nearly every addiction treatment regimen and can significantly aid in the effectiveness of these programs. Lab tests provide valuable information to providers and help patients manage their addiction. But addiction treatment labs can quickly become overwhelmed with a high volume of tests, lack of an automated ordering process with associated clinics, reporting limitations, and a lack of integration with key third-party systems.

Pain Management

Chronic pain is a reality for many, and while opioids are commonly used to treat chronic pain, the opioid crisis has gained national prominence as a significant societal issue. The use of opioids must be very carefully administered by providers to avoid adverse health outcomes in patients.

One of the greatest challenges to the treatment of chronic pain is identifying which patients may be potentially at risk prior to the initiation of therapy, as well as identifying those patients in whom problems may develop during therapy. In order to solve this challenge, providers often assess patients before treatment, and then monitor patients during treatment, with urine drug testing.

With its intuitive navigation and rule-based configuration capability, informed by years of toxicology experience, ApolloLIMS is a user-friendly platform that enables technicians in a pain management lab setting to work as efficiently as possible in the face of an increasing volume of tests. Key features include:

  • Instrument Integration
  • Barcode-enabled functionality
  • Easy ordering and results reporting via the ApolloLIMS Outreach Portal or direct integration with the clinic EMR
  • Ability to track multiple patient visits / specimens, allowing the lab to develop a patient history over time
  • Quality Control
  • Medication / prescription tracking capability
  • Ability to compare prescribed medications to laboratory results
  • Flexible, customized results report (e.g., abnormal summaries, historical graphs, comprehensive notes)
  • Complete audit trail
  • Support of multiple testing locations
  • Management & Ad Hoc Reports

Forensic Toxicology

Forensic toxicology is focused on delivering accurate measurements on a range of sample types to identify drugs or chemicals present in the body. This type of toxicology lab, often found in Medical Examiner offices, relies on the use of highly sophisticated instruments, chemical reagents and precise methodologies to determine the presence or absence of specific substances in a sample, usually provided from an autopsy or crime scene. The main goal is typically to determine the extent to which drugs / poisons may have contributed to impairment or death.

We understand the key needs of forensic toxicology labs and appreciate the unique workflow these labs require. As such, we have added capabilities to ApolloLIMS that are specific to forensic toxicology, which include:

  • Case oriented, multi-specimen processing workflow
  • Ability for image association with any specimen, batch
  • Aggregation of data for legal records
  • Comprehensive audit trail of activity
  • Specimen storage functionality
  • Supply management w/ requisition printing
  • Integration with court management software
  • Ad Hoc Reports
