LabVantage Adds SDMS to LIMS Platform

July 9, 2020

The new SDMS automatically gathers and protects all instrument and other laboratory data as it is generated for enhanced lab management, quality, and security.

LabVantage Solutions announced on July 8, 2020 that it has added a fully integrated scientific data management system (SDMS) to the newly released 8.5 edition of its laboratory information management system (LIMS) platform.

According to a company press release, the new SDMS automatically gathers and protects all instrument and other laboratory data as it is generated for enhanced lab management, quality, and security. The new system also reduces bottlenecks by deploying distributed file collectors; utilizes a centralized LIMS-controlled file system, database, or Amazon web services cloud storage; finds and links back to files; and allows for the creation of graphical Talend-based parsers to extract and process data.

“During these challenging times, we are especially proud to release LabVantage 8.5, which represents a major advance reflecting our commitment to making the advantages of digital transformation fully accessible to our customers,” said John Heiser, CEO of LabVantage, in the press release. “LabVantage 8.5’s fully integrated SDMS is specifically designed for the LabVantage platform and provides major benefits to laboratory managers, with the aim of making their operations more efficient, productive, and secure. Our user-friendly, all-in-one SDMS offers seamless, continuous data integrity. Importantly, it allows managers to secure all of their data, not just the final results.”

“LabVantage 8.5 also provides a substantial advance in simplifying LIMS administration by adding change control capabilities supporting distributed administrative teams, a timely improvement when work arrangements are especially fluid. We have also simplified moving system configuration and master data between LIMS environments. Additional improvements to LabVantage 8.5 include several customer-requested features to make our ELN [electronic lab notebook] even more powerful and easy to use,” Heiser added.
