LABLynx introduces openLIMS for 2004 - The openSource "Build your own LIMS" solution

Atlanta, GA (December 31, 2003) ¾ LABLynx, Inc. has introduced a new product line called "openLIMS" that will allow companies to "Build their own LIMS".  This system is an "Open Source" system that allows for custom LIMS development while maintaining an upgrade path for the product built on the LABLynx Informatics Server.

The openLIMS product compliments a growing family of Informatics products from LABLynx.  All of the informatics products, including openLIMS, are built upon the LABLynx informatics server product.  The openLIMS product will allow end-users, consultants, value added resellers and integrators, to build custom LIMS solutions that are geared to the exact operational needs of many different laboratories.

openLIMS is not meant to replace the current line of LIMS products from LABLynx but to provide a product that can fill a niche market need for customers who want a commercial grade application but would also like to fully customize it for their own specific needs.

openLIMS also fills the market need for consultants and integrators who wish to provide their own LIMS offering to their customers with their own domain knowledge being added to the openLIMS product solution.  This allows 3rd parties to develop their own value added products as a seamless integration with openLIMS that can be resold to customers for very specific industry solutions or for broad range use.  This approach provides the opportunity to greatly enhance the number of LIMS products that can be offered by a wide variety of solution providers.  Third parties interested in using openLIMS to provide their own custom LIMS solutions commercially  should contact John Jones at: [email][/email]

The openLIMS product comes with a wide array of functionality out of the box for applications in:

  • Life Sciences
  • Environmental
  • Forensics
  • Manufacturing
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Clinical
  • Mining
  • Agriculture
  • Water / Waste Water
  • and many others...

The openLIMS product is built on the LABLynx informatics server product which is a web browser, data driven application that runs on Oracle or MS-SQL Server.  The application is entirely web browser based and requires no software to be installed on the client workstation beyond a web browser.  The application itself is installed on your Windows Server on your LAN for access by those individuals you grant rights to.  The application comes with full security and audit trail features that allow for 21CFR11 compliance.

Functionality for openLIMS includes:

  • Multi-site support for multiple lab locations
  • Sample Logging and Tracking
  • Project Management
  • Results Entry by Sample, Batch or Method
