Product News Jan 04, 2006
LabVantage Solutions, Inc. has announced the availability of its Sapphire R4.4. Sapphire R4.4 is designed to offer a significant number of features and benefits.
The features includes: Architectural Enhancements, Enhanced Scheduling, M18 Internationalization Improvements, Advanced Analytical Quality Control Functionality, Programmable Business Rules, Archiver Module, Improved Patching Capabilities, Clustering Module, Evergreen™ Configuration Tool Enhancements, Enhanced Stability & Shelf-Life Testing Module, LDAP Capabilities and BioBanking Module.
"Sapphire R4.4 further adds to the out-of-the-box functionality available in Sapphire to better address the needs of the top research, development, formulation, raw material testing, and quality management laboratories," said Jim Aurelio, CEO of LabVantage.
"As a true thin-client solution [versus just a web-enabled software], Sapphire is unlike any other leading LIMS on the market, enabling enterprise-wide access and visibility coupled with the lowest total cost of ownership for our customers," Jim added.
Sapphire R4.4 is available immediately. As an added benefit to current maintenance & support customers, LabVantage also announced that it will perform free virtual installations and upgrades of Sapphire on any licensed server.
As with previous versions of Sapphire, this release features a user-friendly interface enabling quick end user acceptance and training.
Sapphire’s built-in Evergreen configuration tool allows Sapphire to readily adapt to a variety of data capture, result management, storage, and sample handling needs for any laboratory – whether it’s for an initial deployment or to address future changing business requirements.
With functionality spanning from R&D through manufacturing, all on one enterprise platform, Sapphire offers IT organizations the ability to support only one complete solution, rather than multiple point systems.
Moreover, Sapphire’s open architecture and API enable easy integration with third party systems, instruments, databases, and other business applications.
