Expand LabCollector LIMS Capabilities With Additional Modules
LabCollector LIMS can include optional applications. We are constantly working on these modules to provide you with a larger choice of features. In the near future we may open this possibilities to custom 3rd party modules. You can also suggest ideas for optional modules in the forum.
You can save and manage your experimental results with our ELN module. Built as a collaborative platform you can create books and share them with lab collaborators. It is versatile with the possibility to generate Workflows based on specific templates. Use Workflow and page templates for routine work or free and flexible experiment records for research activity. Organization of experimental data is made in 3 levels displayed in a tree-like browser. The ELN is easily searched by keywords and content. Includes integrated certificates management and digital signature content validation.
LSM – Lab Services
This module will allow a lab to keep track of client samples, gather them in jobs (with workflows/task lists), manage plates and generate or export data into reports and have service history for billing purposes, etc. It will manage any kind of lab service (analysis, microbiology, chemistry, molecular biology, etc).
This add-on centralizes temperature, pressure, humidity and many more sensors values over time. It includes automatic import from netowork loggers. All temperature data is stored and displayed graphically. LabCollector samples are then easily associated to temperature charts. GSM/SMS and email alerts can be used.
This module allows the management of workflow templates (a catalog of job workflows) that can be used to start new jobs. All jobs are stored and then status and advancement can be monitored. Step validation is possible. Steps are linked to LabCollector data modules for record storage and edition.
This module allows lab staff to directly import data stored as 2D data matrix barcodes of well plates/racks. Use it to catalogue samples information (name, tube position and rack ID) into LabCollector LIMS. Now compatible with most scanners (FluidX, BioMicroLab, Micronic, Thermo …).
FREE/INCLUDED by default in LabCollector license!
Micronic / BioMicroLab
This add-on helps you recover dispatched samples on storage and place them on a working tray. It generates a picklist automatically and the necessary instruction files for the tube sorter robot (Micronic / BioMicroLab, etc). Join the scanner and tube sorter to really improve your efficiency in recovering samples in quantity.
The module also generates Fluidigm EP1 files!
This add-on module will add a calendar system to LabCollector LIMS. Every user can create and share several calendars to manage events. A general shared calendar is visible to all lab members for common events. Events can be recurrent. Calendar sharing is defined user by user allowing groups to be formed around project calendars. All events can be linked to existing LabCollector records, allowing scheduling of events related to biological actions (ex: blood sampling on patients or animals).
Based on our equipment scheduling system, this adds a scheduling & reservation calendar to equipment stored on LabCollector LIMS, Users can quickly check & add reservations to any equipment or facility in the lab. It supports recurrent events (like every day or specific days on the week). It includes a reporting tool to give equipment usage statistics in the past or upcoming events (by user, by equipment or by categories).
This module gives you a way to store and organize all photos you generate during your projects from microscopy, electrophoresis, animals, etc. You can create unlimited galleries, unlimited categories, upload several photos in a click, comment, etc. It can support TIFF, JPEG, PNG, GIF and most movie formats. It also allows custom media formats definition to help you store/archive raw images. Linking to samples in LabCollector is possible.
A Photo Uploader tool for Windows is also available to speed up charging images to the PhotoBank directly from image source computers.
Simple Test Lab
This FREE add-on for LabCollector has been created for labs that need to deal with basic testing with efficiency AND simplicity. Here you have a connection with 3 modules: the Address Book to handle the information of the patient or the requester, the sample module for your sample storage management, and a module for your reports & results.
This module is a complete animal facility management system dedicated to fish growth and experiments. You can manage fish entries, transfers and exits from tanks, growth, feeding (including live food production), custom and unlimited alerts. It gives inventory and several types of reports. You can manage all kinds of aquatic animals including mutants or transgenic breedings. Integrates easily into LabCollector LIMS. This is a multilingual module (currently French and English).
SSM – Sequencing
This module gives the tools to a lab to manage clients and sequencing orders. Users will be able to place orders and check sequencing status and download results. Service admin will manage orders, organize them on plates or single tubes and easily upload results.
It comes with an ABI chromatogram file viewer, integrated for efficient results management.
SSM is composed of two main interfaces: Sanger sequencing and NGS service managements. NGS part gives project follow-up tools with result delivery.
PTS – Protein
This module is a protein production management system. Integrated into LabCollector PTS allows the lab to follow up different process and task progression in several projects. Users can follow all steps of protein production, purification, analysis …
This collaborative tool allows a lab to manage and follow-up any service or tasks. It allows multiple custom forms to be created for a project level and tasks/services level. Progress is monitored and results are uploaded to each item/sample. Remote access for clients is possible from an external page.
This module allows the management of typical workflow for SNP genotyping labs. It includes assays vials storage and retrieving (pick lists) using machine pickers, preparing plates for Fluidigm EP1, re-ordering of assays to suppliers, etc.
2 Box (Free)
This add-on is a visual database query builder to create custom data reports/exports. It follows relations between modules. You can design any type of query with filters to extract part or total of your record relations. You can save queries for later reuse for regular reporting. Reports can be sent to Excel.
Add-on for automatic file parsing from local or cloud folders.
This collaborative catalog allows LabCollector LIMS users to share data from modules across all users of all LabCollector instances. Therefore a LabCollector user can search if a product like antibody, primer, plasmid … is available on other labs or groups of the insitute/campus/department, for example.
Each lab team chooses which information they want to share with the lab community through a extensible configuration file.
This application allows administrative department manager to have access to all the purchase lists form the different instances of LabCollector on the enterprise server.
The Purchase Orders Manager will help you to manage the order lists, the reagents, chemicals and supplies but also sellers contact details.
LabCollector is user access restricted. However in some cases a public database may be interest to provide a list of lab resources to the community.
For those who need a catalog of resources for the other labs in the same network (same institution for example), we propose a template page that can be customized and giving access to defined custom modules. Users can log in as visitors (you can define a group of external users) to that page and will be given access to “public” modules.
Features include the search engine, but storage and other information were removed.
