LabCollector overview

What is LabCollector?

LabCollector Hosted is a lab information management software and electronic lab notebook (ELN) built around independent modules that interact with each other, managing a variety of day-to-day laboratory information. The software is used within small to larger labs, academics, pharma groups, and research and development (R&D). Using LabCollector, scientists can work efficiently by quickly accessing and modifying data which is made available to the entire lab community via the cloud.

LabCollector’s management modules enable users to perform information and stock management on a modular basis. The storage system enables stocks localization that is managed using box cell grids and can be defined by point and click. LabCollector’s customization features perfectly adapt to any data scheme.

Scientists can navigate lab storage places using a hierarchical browser tree, and all lab staff actions within the database are recorded onto history logs including audit trails and data versioning. A backup method is also provided for simple data storage on external and redundant media.

All information that is stored in LabCollector LIMS is identified by a barcode. Scientists can create linear 1D and datamatrix 2D barcode labels for quick sample data retrieval and can be printed on stickers to identify tubes or documents.

The solution provides a collaborative interface and is capable of extensive customization without any coding skills. LabCollector can be accessed from any computer as well as wirelessly from PDA devices.

Lab management made easy

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

Much better than spreadsheets. Very organized and highly recommended.

Pros
As a researcher, Labcollector has helped our laboratory in organizing data sets and files that need to be stored and used later. Inventory management is also a plus. The efficiency of the software is also worth noting in terms of its immense functionality.

Cons
None at the moment. We have been using it for almost 6 months now, and so far it has been great.

very good database for LabManagement

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

We started using this Software 3 years ago for all the Groups in our Department, we use it for cells in LN, reagents in freezers, slides, equipment (pipettes, instruments, etc...), plasmids, and General documents (SOPs).

Pros
Very easy to adapt to your needs, you can have separate databases belonging to single Groups, very flexible System. Good support.

Cons
It can get very slow if you add too many records to 1 single module, we have 1 with 6000 records and it is a bit too slow. The Import of tubes through a box Reader should be improved (we have the scanner but do not use it), it is complicated to Import big data from another database.

Response from AgileBio LLC


Thank you for your review. We love to hear how we can improve LabCollector for our clients.

Since LabCollector v5.2 an improved indexing allows a much faster database support. LabCollector supports this way big databases with over 100 000 records for one module. Another point of interest considering LabCollector speed, it is the server capacity by having your LabCollector on your local server. We offer servers with high capacities such as Virtual private server as well as dedicated servers.

Another improvement of version 5.2 is the import from Excel/CSV files! This has been improved making it simpler to import and new import tools are under progress.

Batch Sample Tool is a free tool in LabCollector to import from any rack reader into LabCollector. We are compatible with any scanner brand using our direct connector ScanServer.

Keep tuned as we keep making better versions every days!

Very useful lab software well worth its price

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2016-09-02
Review Source: Capterra

We wanted to implement an ELN in a start-up comany so we were looking for a program which is not too comprehensive but reasonably priced. Nevertheless, we were happy to find out that LabCollector is much more than just an ELN. It has repleaced not only hand-written lab books but also several spreadsheets at our company. The modular structure of the software is optimal for us as we can have the features which we really need and not pay for others which we would never use. It is also an advantage for a small company that you don't need to have your own server.

Pros
LabCollector makes the organization of the lab much more transparent and efficient compared to spreadsheets and hand-written lab books. It is definitely worth the extra energy you have to put into it at the beginning to set up your system. In addition, good documentation also adds value to our products. Furthermore, Agilebio offers excellent customer support.

Cons
There are some bugs in the program but if you report them to the developers they will try to fix them or at least they will suggest you a way to solve your problem.

LabCollector is an outstanding tool and since many years has become a critical tool in the daily routine of my laboratory. We use it extensively, not only taking advantage of the existing pre-defined modules but also through customization. The frequent updates constantly keep bringing new features and easy of use, so we look forward to go even deeper into using LabCollector, as it really frees our time for what really matters: research!

Pros
