Our story

1988

The beginning

CliniSys’ story began when William Woodard Associates was founded in the UK by William Woodard and a group of pathology specialists who were passionate about offering better software for the pathology service. The company that would become known as CliniSys from 2008, began here.

1992

The start of our NHS partnership

First full NHS site goes live with our specialist LIMS, building on dominance of the private sector pathology market, BUPA (now Spire), Nuffield Health, BMI, Ramsey, and previous adoption at NHS department level. 
Starting as we mean to go on, our system adheres to all statutory requirements and continuous innovation is embedded in our approach, leading to ongoing improvement and enhancements to our software – something we remain committed to. 

1998

First Windows LIMS System

A big leap forward with the launch of our first Windows LIMS System, providing our users with a simpler and familiar user interface, alongside other new developments and tools to enhance productivity.

2001

Working with NHS networks

CliniSys secures its first NHS network, connecting three hospitals – including a large teaching hospital – and delivering standardisation across the county. This proved to be the first of many multi-site solutions, which has grown further with the advent of NHS Pathology networks in the UK.

2005

MIPS joins the CliniSys family

CliniSys acquires MIPS, the company that developed GLIMS and CyberLab, to become the largest European LIMS supplier, bringing our customers the combined benefits of broader expertise while retaining specialist local solutions.
CliniSys also acquired Torex Laboratory Systems, the company that owned and supported LabCentre, earlier the same year. 

2011

Logistics and Point of Care

2011 saw the launch of Logistics Management Solution for end-to-end sample traceability. 
Also the year we formed our partnership with Siemens to deliver Point of Care Testing. 

2015

Growth of MIPS Germany

MIPS strengthens presence in Germany with the acquisition of MCS-LDS, one of the major laboratory information systems providers in Germany. This acquisition is the platform to expand our products and services in the German speaking countries.

2016

CliniSys acquired by Roper

CliniSys is acquired by Roper Technology, whose healthcare division includes Sunquest and Data Innovations. We then merged Sunquest’s ICE business to become the market leading Order Communication Software supplier in the UK.
MIPS acquires Belgian Anapath LIS market leader Fresco Consult.
And, in what was clearly a busy year, CliniSys and hc1.com form a partnership to deliver a unique pathology relationship management solution, offering an innovative platform that enables labs to deliver the highest level of service to our customers. 

2019

New markets and services

MIPS acquires Cointec, a Spanish market leader of laboratory information software.
CliniSys plays a major role in supporting England’s primary HPV screening service, after securing contracts to provide its requesting and reporting software (ICE) to seven out of eight new laboratory hubs. 

2020

Supporting Covid-19 testing

CliniSys Group develops innovative solutions to increase test capacity across the UK and Europe to help tackle the Covid-19 pandemic. Continuous innovation also sees us launch GLIMS Genomics in France and the UK and provide Tissue Typing and Newborn Screening LIMS Solutions in the UK.

2021

A fresh look for the CliniSys brand

CliniSys Group launches new website and branding. One brand and voice whilst delivering the same high level of localised support to our customers through the combined strengths and experience of the CliniSys and MIPS teams.
