Mettler Toledo and Applied Biosystems streamline software integration

Mettler Toledo and Applied Biosystems have collaborated to allow the seamless integration of Mettler Toledo‘s LabX Data Management Software with the Applied Biosystems SQL*LIMS laboratory information system.

Integrating the two platforms simplifies workflows, provides efficient data management and improves security processes.

The LIMS takes control of the Mettler Toledo instrument via LabX and sends all operator instructions to the instrument screen as a user interface, so that users can operate the laboratory instruments as normal.

The software guides the operator through each step of the worklist, ensuring SOPs are followed and avoiding procedural errors. It performs full data acquisition, data storage, and automated reporting and documentation for audit trails; data can be stored within the LabX database and/or the LIMS as appropriate.
