Asterian, LLC develops and distributes laboratory informatics software. The company also provides consulting and marketing services to other labs.


The company was founded in March 2019[1] by several former employees of eLab Solutions Corporation. That same month, Asterian acquired QuikLIMS from eLab.[2] Asterian seems to have since integrated QuikLIMS as a toxicology module in its ArgoLIMS solution.[3][4]
