Labware LIMS

LabWare is a global provider of LIMS, serving customers in more than 60 countries. LabWare LIMS meets the requirements of a wide range of industries and laboratory types, such as R&D, QA/QC and contract analysis. An increasing number of organisations have chosen to standardise on LabWare LIMS as a global, enterprise-wide LIMS platform, rather than using multiple, ‘niche’ LIMS products.

LabWare LIMS is a COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) product delivering rich end-user functionality within the core product, including on-line instrument data acquisition. An extensive library of standard application modules delivers additional capability for industry specific areas. Advanced configuration tools enable customers to adapt the LIMS to end-user requirements without compromising the core software, support and product upgrades.

LabWare LIMS utilises ‘Configure Once, Deploy Anywhere’ technology allowing deployment by Windows, the Web and hand-held PDAs, providing considerable advantage when deploying the LIMS to a wide, and varied end-user community.
