DSM Discipline Resources
DSM’s multi-disciplinary Laboratory Information Manual is the source of current and consistent laboratory references and values for DSM’s Winnipeg region labs. Phase Two of the LIM initiative will be to further expand the manual to apply to all labs within DSM’s provincial system, beginning with the integration of the Westman Regional Laboratory data into the DSM LIM.
Cadham Provincial Laboratory is not part of DSM. Please refer to their website for information.
