LabCollector overview

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.

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

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.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.

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!- possibility for customization - frequent updates - User Support

Efficient development for a specific use in biobanking

Review Source: Capterra

We had a limited time to develop a system fitting our specific needs for biobanking animal samples, with a limited amount of money. The Agilebio team of developers made a proposition cheaper than we initially expected by using their already developed modules and linking them to build an efficient system that fully fits our needs. Even years after the initial development, they are still very responsive when I need updates. Easy to administer; many modules that can be activated upon your needs; addition of personal fields at no cost; very stable; a single entry for all the laboratory activities

We spent years searching for a tool like LabCollector

Very positive experience. This product has managed to fill a niche between desktop biobanking solutions and enterprise-class LIMS systems. It is a great LIMS that meets the needs of many academic research groups, institutes, and biotech companies. We spent years looking for a decent sample management software. Some of the key requirements that LC meet include: - web-based solution - software that could be implemented in house instead of being hosted by a third party. - no per user licensing fee LC goes beyond this set of requirements. There are a number of modules for managing other aspects of a lab operation beyond simply tracking samples. LC is progressively becoming a central hub of all our laboratory information. The use of a standard database (MySQL) makes it possible to access the data without going through the user interface when needed. Customer support is top notch. They are extremely responsive and helpful. We really feel that we get a personal attention.
