LabWare LIMS v6

LabWare has released the next version of its LabWare LIMS product. LabWare LIMS v6 is the foundation application in the company’s fully integrated LIMS, which offers built-in instrument interfacing and a broad range of functional modules.

Under the LabWare licensing scheme, customers can use the v6 application to meet needs across their entire enterprise including everything from comprehensive sample management and automated data acquisition to inventory tracking, environmental monitoring, customer contact management, shelf-life stability study management, clinical protocol set-up and control, biorepository and storage resource management, among many others. The system is equally well suited to quality control and quality assurance as well as research and development settings and continues LabWare’s emphasis on customer configurability, negating the need for complex programming and application customisation.

LabWare LIMS v6 serves as the foundation application of the LabWare system, and the company’s architecture enables the customer to deploy the user interface as a completely browser-based solution, or via a thin client model on the Microsoft Windows platform. Hybrid deployments combining multiple architectures are also possible.

Existing customers can upgrade to the v6 release, with complete preservation of their existing configuration. When implemented as a fully browser-based solution, the LabWare LIMS v6 application is deployed in conjunction with LabWare’s newest WebLIMS presentation layer to deliver a zero-footprint solution.
