LabX software features automatic data handling, high process security, full SOP user guidance and bi-directional third-party interfacing. All instrument data is automatically saved to the database. Both at the instrument and at the PC, results can be quickly searched, sorted and organized. SOPs and all associated instruments are centrally managed at one location. Various lab instruments, ELN, LIMS, SAP and Excel can be integrated into the system, and tasks generated by ELNs and LIMS can be brought directly to the instrument touch screen. Users can connect instruments in a simple or distributed and networked system. Customizable reports can be printed on demand, as well as automatically as part of the workflow on the instrument.
