    Lab OS Architecture

    Lab OS provides a multi-users/multi-site laboratory data management system to an attractive entry level price without missing essential features. Lab OS is a modular scalable system with both Client-Server Access and browser-based access depending on the functionality. It provides high connectivity to instruments and other systems. As one of the few systems on the market Lab OS provides all the functionality under regulatory requirements.

    Multi-Layer Architecture

    Lab OS has a multi-layer architecture consisting
  • a database server at the core,
  • different server to access the instruments or other systems and to provide the data to
  • native clients and where necessary and sensible
  • browser-based clients
  • Database Server

    Lab OS recommends the use of Microsoft SQL Server as database management system. The main database contains all the sample based data. Other connected databases for usermanagement and workflow management.

    For small but high quality repositories Lab OS provides a solution without any external database, using a SQLite backbone.


    Lab OS contains a comprehensive reporting mechanism, providing (electronical signed) PDF reports in all parts of the system. An Audit trail is maintained and available for every action on the data.


    Lab OS is an ID based system and therefore supports almost every barcode scanner (HID) or RFID Scanner (125kHz/13,86MHz). 2D Rack scanner are supported and fully integrated by different manufacturer. Barcode printing is possible with every Printer providing a printer driver for the Windows system. The Barcode lables (formats/types) can be easily configured for the system.

    External Systems and Instruments

    Lab OS abstracts external data systems (LIS, HIS, other database..) as well as Instruments in an internal communication layer. Data Integration is possible as long as the others provide interfaces. Lab OS itself provides a high level web services based interface.

    Workflow Management

    Lab OS provides with the module Lab OS Station a workflow management system, which guides the user according electronical representation of your SOP and documents the process. Where possible the system documents process data automaticalls. The Workflow management is fully integrated with the Sample Database, i.e. preparation and controlled freeze processes can automatically be part of the sample documentation.
