Version 11 of STARLIMS LIMS software ideal for industrial, clinical and research laboratories

Abbott unveiled Version 11 STARLIMS LIMS software for industrial, clinical and research laboratories, featuring easy and reliable mobile applications for use with smart phones and tablet computing devices. The company also announced global availability of its secure and convenient cloud computing services.

Based on Abbott’s STARLIMS informatics technology, the v.11 LIMS software will expand user functionality to include mobile-device applications and advanced analytic capabilities. These features will allow STARLIMS users to work on the right screen for the right task with an expanded platform to access LIMS information anywhere for use in quality assurance functions, raw materials analysis and other needs.

At the annual Pittcon Laboratory Science and Equipment Exhibition, Abbott showed how its unified STARLIMS platform and new mobile applications offer efficient ways to consolidate and retrieve all types of lab information. STARLIMS is web-based and includes the award-winning Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), as well as Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) functionality and a Scientific Data Management System (SDMS).

Mobile Apps for Use with Smart Phones and Tablets

STARLIMS v.11 software runs on alternative browsers and includes support for  mobile applications for use with STARLIMS systems. The software allows users to access STARLIMS on Chrome, Safari and other browsers and to display LIMS information on tablet computers and smart phones. Two new control libraries are included in STARLIMS v.11 software: one for forms to be run on desktop computers using a range of popular browsers and the other contains controls commonly found on tablets and smart phones that use touch screens. The touch controls allow user interaction with Apple and Android devices in a manner consistent with what users of such devices would expect.

“Selecting the right screen for the right task enables lab managers and other personnel to utilize specially developed apps. Theseapps  provide clients for example, on-the-spot access to lab test results and reports allowing them to  authorize and release lab results remotely. ,” said Clive Baron, general manager, global operations, Informatics Systems, Abbott. “This innovation provides laboratories with broad functionality and unprecedented remote LIMS access and versatility.”

Cloud Services

STARLIMS Cloud Services combines industry-leading, web-based LIMS software with the convenient, versatile and cost-effective reliability of a cloud-based solution. The STARLIMS Cloud is a secure application with a powerful server and storage capabilities managed by STARLIMS which is fully accessible by a web browser.

With STARLIMS Cloud Services, there is no hardware or software to purchase and install and no need to reconfigure existing system infrastructure. Also, data is stored in a secure, cloud-based infrastructure and is delivered, managed and accessed via the STARLIMS application. The STARLIMS Cloud Services team manages the cloud infrastructure, application performance and database monitoring.

STARLIMS offers best-in-class cloud environments, public or private. With the STARLIMS Public Cloud, customers can work in their STARLIMS environment directly via the Internet. Users also can access STARLIMS as an extension of an internal network with the STARLIMS Private Cloud via secure connections such as IPSec or MPLS.
