Getting LDMS Installed

If you do not have LDMS installed, contact Frontier Science as they will facilitate installation. As part of this process, your laboratory will be assigned a unique LDMS laboratory ID by Frontier Science. A laboratory ID is a 3-digit number that uniquely identifies a laboratory. This ID is used in several places in LDMS:

  • It is used to generate global specimen IDs for specimens, a number that uniquely identifies a single specimen across all laboratories using LDMS.

  • It is used for shipping specimens between laboratories.

Your LDMS laboratory ID will be assigned to you by Frontier Science prior to the installation of LDMS. Once this ID has been assigned to you, LDMS User Support will coordinate the installation of LDMS for you.
