The introduction of software based laboratory information management systems (LIMS) has helped manage many aspects of the laboratory, from movement of samples and people to the experiments being carried out. These management systems have been developed further to interact directly with devices in the laboratory, automating certain experiments (such as auto-samplers). The use of online systems allows for remote management and control of experiments through web browsers and, where possible, through hand held devices such as mobile phones. Allowing remote control and review can benefit the experimenter in a number of ways such as increasing safety where the experimental environment is unsafe to remain in, improving results where small changes in the environment greatly affect the obtained results and can save time through early detection of failures
