LabVantage has announced Sapphire Release 5.1, its zero footprint configurable off-the-shelf (COTS) LIMS that consolidates functionality typically found in multiple laboratory systems. Sapphire is readily tailored to manage an organisation's laboratory information across its worldwide R&D pipeline and manufacturing supply chain.
Among the new features are eForms, which provide a configurable approach to creating and filling out forms electronically. Also, Grid Data Entry uses dynamic techniques to allow real-time rich-data visualisation via a grid/spreadsheet-enabled interface.
The LIMS also contains Protocol Management and Kit Management functions, as well as those for Study Management, Quality Management and Configuration Reporting.
