Pros

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.
Labcollector contains already a lot of nice features which give the final application additional functionalities and a rich interface with a lot of possibilities.
We found this solution an excellent compromise between cost and functionalities.

Pros

Not enoughreviews yet

Cons

The different layers of the lab book are useless and just add confusion. Trying to fit my recording needs to the lab book was the reverse of what I needed.
Queries across modules difficult to setup. Not possible to customize the layout of pre-defined forms.
We had a limited time to develop a system fitting our specific needs for biobanking animal samples, with a limited amount of money.

LabCollector LIMS

Efficient development for a specific use in biobanking

Reviewed 6 years ago

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.

Pros

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

Cons

The animal module cannot replace a dedicated animal management system

LabCollector LIMS

Lab management made easy

Reviewed 3 years ago

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.

Vendor response

Thank you for using. We appreciate your review and we feel rewarded from all these years developing the tool. Feel free to reach out with any suggestion you may have so we continue to better serve you. Check soon our new version.

LabCollector in the Biotech Space

Reviewed 6 years ago

We have 10 users of LabCollector in our business and we have been using it for about 9 months. We have had some custom training while we have been moving from a paper-based system to an electronic system. The improved functionality and the ease of sharing between people is already evident. The improved productivity levels in the laboratory are also noticeable. In a short space of time we are already noticing that the increase in ease of work and productivity is such that we would never revert to anything other than an electronic system. The benefits apply not only to the LIM system but also we are obtaining enormous benefit from the ELN add-on. We are also investigating the purchase of additional add-ons to support our 10 user LabCollector licence.

Pros

Ease of use and improved productivity

Cons

It takes a bit of time to get to understand the software and to become a capable user

Vendor response

Thank you for your feedback. Do not hesitate to reach out if you need assistance finding a feature.

Laboratory Organisation

Reviewed 6 years ago

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

- possibility for customization - frequent updates - User Support

LabCollector LIMS

We spent years searching for a tool like LabCollector

Reviewed 11 years ago

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

It is not always obvious to understand how the different modules complement each other. We had to develop our in house policies regarding the use of LC modules. The software is encrypted. We would prefer to have access to the source code so that we can better integrate this tool with our other informatics resources.

LabCollector LIMS

very good database for LabManagement

Reviewed 6 years ago

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.

Vendor response

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....

LabCollector LIMS

Very useful lab software well worth its price

Reviewed 6 years ago

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.

Avalon Laboratory System

Lab Software that fits our business

Reviewed 2 years ago

I am very happy with Avalon and their staff. They are incredibly responsive to our needs and have helped us solve some issues with 3rd party software that Avalon wasn't responsible for creating.

Pros

Avalon LIS is intuitive and easy to learn to use for my lab staff. We were up and running within 2 days of implementing the software. It is very easy to connect Avalon to our analyzers so that results can be easily transferred to our LIMS which saves a lot of time.

Cons

The standard reports are not as robust as they could be so if I want a specific report, I go through Avalon's customer service. The turnaround time is quick, but I would like to be able to run reports myself.
