We discuss the possible searching for the oscillation by coherent $\Lambda\bar{\Lambda}$ production in $J/\psi \rightarrow \Lambda \bar{\Lambda}$ decay process. The sensitivity of measurement of $\Lambda - \bar{\Lambda}$ oscillation in the external field at BES-III experiment is considered. These considerations indicate an alternative way to probe the $\Delta B =2$ amplitude in addition to neutron oscillation experiments. Both coherent and time-dependent information can be used to extract $\Lambda -\bar{\Lambda}$ oscillation parameter. With one year's luminosity at BES-III, we can set an upper limit of $\delta m < 10^{-15}$ MeV at 90% confidence level, corresponding to about $10^{-6}$ s of $\Lam-\Lamb$ oscillation time.
