LabCollector Feature Reviews

Efficient development for a specific use in biobanking

2016-09-15

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

Lab management made easy

2019-04-03

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.

Cons

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

We spent years searching for a tool like LabCollector

2012-02-14

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

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.

Cons

We would prefer to have access to the source code so that we can better integrate this tool with our other informatics resources.

Pros

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

Cons

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.

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!

Good bang for your buck but runs slow

2019-01-10

Pros

We are encouraged to even use it as an electronic lab book though some would prefer a paper notebook.

Cons

We've encountered a few bugs or glitches which we reported to the developers.

Thank you for the feedback. In terms of performance, LabCollector can handle hundreds of thousands of records. It has been recently improved with an option for database optimization that can be activated in the Admin>Setup menu. Just contact our support in case of unusual slow speed. Thanks!

Very useful lab software well worth its price

2016-09-02

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

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 effective colleague!

2014-04-11

For that, if you associate the database and the electronic labnotebook (ELN), you have a very effective tool to follow your experiments, the samples generated and where they are stored.

LabCollector for managing assays

2012-02-13

Good. I would advise this software to every lab that needs to manage assays and samples. We don't regret the purchase of this piece of software.

Pros

LabCollector (track-IT) was installed and implemented quite fast in our lab.

Cons

We had to purchase licenses for an additional database to separate assays from samples.

LABCOLLECTOR as an effective repository of information

2015-08-28

We've been very satisfied of the support and the 'customizations' which we asked to develop for us Pro's - good ratio quality/price - easy to administer by non-professional IT people - simple web interface Con's - still various bugs present which need to be fixed - queries across modules difficult to setup - not possible to customize the layout of pre-defined forms We are convinced of the future potential of LabCollector because of the capacity of implementing customer requests.

Well designed and realiable

Pros

Well designed and realiable

Cons

Reagents and supply module allows "Storage Location" choice but not the cjoice of the box, nor the position within the box. A number of biochemicals product are small vials stored in 10x10 crio-boxes. Page formatting and cut-and-paste in ELN module is troublesome.

You can use the secondary storage in the reagents and supplies module to store your products on the appropriate equipment, box and choose the position.

LabCollector has become the heart of lab processes, which allows to keep information highly organised and accessible to lab members, and makes live very easy to everybody, especially newcomers which find there all they need to know, from finding a particular plasmid, antibody or reagent to making purchase orders, retrieve supplier contacts or an experimental protocol.
