After China's entry into WTO, foreign laboratories have set up wholly-owned and cooperative laboratories, and their standardized laboratory management and quality assurance system have challenged environmental monitoring laboratories. The test report issued by the environmental monitoring and analysis laboratory is related to the national economy and the people's livelihood. In the whole process of environmental testing, all kinds of environmental testing technical specifications and analytical method standards promulgated by the state should be strictly implemented, and the analytical testing procedures and quality management requirements should be observed. In this paper, the application of Laboratory information management system (LIMS) in the quality management of environmental monitoring laboratory is studied. LIMS is an auxiliary tool to manage the laboratory by means of information technology. With the standardization construction of environmental monitoring business and the rapid development of business volume, the application value and potential role of LIMS in environmental monitoring departments have become increasingly apparent. LIMS realizes all-round management with laboratory analysis and testing as the core. It integrates many modules, such as sample management, resource management, data management, quality control, report management, resource management, etc., and forms a complete laboratory comprehensive management and product quality monitoring system, which can not only meet the external daily management requirements, but also ensure the strict management and control of laboratory analysis data.
