LabVantage Solutions Adds First Fully Integrated Scientific Data Management System to Its LIMS Platform
Product News Feb 28, 2020
LabVantage Solutions, Inc., provider of laboratory informatics solutions and services, has announced that the upcoming 8.5 edition of its LabVantage platform will include the first fully integrated Scientific Data Management System (SDMS). The SDMS is embedded in and interfaces with all elements of the LabVantage platform, including LIMS (laboratory information management systems), ELN (electronic laboratory notebooks), and LES (laboratory execution systems).
The integrated SDMS automatically collects and protects instrument and other relevant data as it is generated, which provides a rich informatics and analytical resource that aims to enable better lab management, improved quality control and enhanced security. Full integration means that all relevant lab-generated data can be collected automatically and then quickly made available to laboratory staff in several formats. Importantly, integration ensures data integrity and security, by eliminating the need to transfer data between system components, typically a weak link in the process.
The LabVantage Scientific Data Management System enables users to easily collect and secure a wide range of laboratory data from instruments and other elements of the platform. It ensures that data remains secure and available for future re-processing. It immediately captures externally generated data, including from:
- Complex instruments that generate files, such as chromatography systems
- Real-time data sources such as freezers
- Incoming emails and other file captures, including local drives and file shares.
LabVantage SDMS is designed to ensure security and control against data loss or modification. It uses powerful graphical parsers or Talend-based drivers to import lab data and offers robust storage options, including the LIMS file system and database. The system deploys remote file collectors to reduce data bottlenecks and quickly links back to files, included delimited, Word, Excel, text, PDF, and more. When needed, the LabVantage SDMS also restores files for re-processing.
