Exemplar Lims 4.0

Sapio Sciences has released Exemplar Lims 4.0, which extends the product's functions in configurability and flexibility.

v4.0 features a fully extendible data model with support for complex relationships, such as many-to-many relations, all with zero programming, as well as improvements in the built-in querying and reporting tools. There are also improvements in performance and scalability, so a single server instance can now support several hundred concurrent users, and enhancements to freezer management with support for configurable freezers and easy viewing of samples in shelves/racks/boxes.
