Product overview: 

From developing a new drug to providing accurate test results, Abbott Informatics’ solutions are transforming labs everywhere. Abbott Informatics software simplifies complex processes, uses analytics to connect the dots, and makes data available on the go.

One Partner, One Power Solution – Abbott Informatics’ LIMS, ELN and SDMS products, coupled with analytics and mobile capabilities eliminate the need to develop and manage costly and multiple information management interfaces from multiple partners:

•STARLIMS Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) - STARLIMS is built on decades of expertise and enhances data integrity, management and sharing. Fully web-based, STARLIMS expertly handles complex processes, supports regulatory compliance, and promotes collaboration, both within your own lab and between labs around the world.

•Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) - The ELN eliminates paper-based notebooks to increase efficiency, reduce error rates and promote regulatory compliance. This powerful tool gives you peace of mind that all data and supporting information are properly documented and that Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are followed.

•Scientific Data Management System (SDMS) - The SDMS extracts information from various scientific documents and places it into a structured, easy-to-access format. Spreadsheets, product specifications, instrument output files and more are synthesized into SDMS, enabling integrated searches.

•Advanced Analytics - All lab workflow data can be viewed in an intuitive interface that shows the links between data, enabling your users to generate information for critical decision making.

•Mobile - Use your smartphone or tablet to connect to your lab from anywhere. View key performance indicators; approve results, view status reports and more, to increase lab productivity.

Building a Smart Laboratory 2018 highlights the importance of adopting smart laboratory technology, as well as pointing out the challenges and pitfalls of the process


Informatics experts share their experiences on the implementing new technologies and manging change in the modern laboratory


This chapter will consider the different classes of instruments and computerised instrument systems to be found in laboratories and the role they play in computerised experiments and sample processing – and the steady progress towards all-electronic laboratories.


This chapter considers how the smart laboratory contributes to the requirements of a knowledge eco-system, and the practical consequences of joined-up science. Knowledge management describes the processes that bring people and information together to address the acquisition, processing, storage, use, and re-use of knowledge to develop understanding and to create value


This chapter takes the theme of knowledge management beyond document handling into the analysis and mining of data. Technology by itself is not enough – laboratory staff need to understand the output from the data analysis tools – and so data analytics must be considered holistically, starting with the design of the experiment
