If it is worth doing - it is worth doing well

Welcome to BLIPS 8™ for the ILTOO Lupil-2 Study

The BLIPS software program has been iteratively designed and developed by ADS-Limathon in collaboration with the British Isles Lupus Assessment Group (BILAG) . BLIPS is the only BILAG scoring system validated and endorsed by the BILAG Group, and ADS-Limathon are the exclusive licensors of BILAG for commercial studies.

BLIPS™ was originally developed by ADS-Limathon as a desktop software application in 1995. It has been in constant use for over 20 years and now hosts BILAG data going back almost 30 years. In 2015 we were proud to introduce the latest version - BLIPS 8 Suite™ - a modular suite of BLIPS applications designed to monitor and assess lupus patients at regular assessments.

Nowadays, the BLIPS 8 Service is hosted on the latest high availability technology with server replication, using the latest dual processor servers, with RAID arrays of solid state drives for speed, daily backups for data security, and offsite backups for disaster recovery.
