Integration with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Enhances STARLIMS Workflow and Collaboration Capabilities

HOLLYWOOD, Fla., March 10, 2009 — STARLIMS Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq:LIMS), a leading provider of laboratory information management systems, or LIMS, today announced that it has integrated its software with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, offering several powerful new features that will enhance collaboration and facilitate regulatory compliance.

STARLIMS’s integration with SharePoint Server provides comprehensive control over electronic content. This improves the sharing of information—and decision-making—within the enterprise and throughout the supply chain. It also enhances organizational efficiency, and helps harmonize business processes.

“The Microsoft .NET Framework provides the basic platform for our award-winning LIMS product, and we also rely on Microsoft Windows and SQL Server. As a result, the integration of SharePoint Server was seamless, and allowed us to maximize our systems’ collaborative capabilities,” said Itschak Friedman, president and CEO of STARLIMS. “In addition, such wide-scope technological alignment with Microsoft products future-proofs our solutions, by ensuring rapid deployment of future enhancements to Microsoft’s dynamic products.”

Integrated Content Management

Integration with SharePoint Server will enhance the collaborative and content management capabilities of the STARLIMS® Scientific Data Management System (SDMS). STARLIMS SDMS adds unstructured data management capabilities to the company’s flexible LIMS platform.

“Life sciences firms often struggle with the volume of unstructured and scattered data across internal systems and their extended value chains,” said Michael Naimoli, U.S. life sciences industry solutions director, Microsoft Corp. “Built upon the Microsoft platform, including SharePoint Server and SQL Server, STARLIMS SDMS creates a powerful solution for managing unstructured scientific data together with structured laboratory data. By integrating various types of content into a single, web-based platform, STARLIMS customers can now streamline their information management, maximize their availability and utility of information resources and promote enterprise-wide collaboration.”

Close Partnership and Long-term Benefits

According to Friedman, STARLIMS customers are well positioned to benefit from Microsoft’s ongoing investments into its server-based products. The award-winning STARLIMS V10 web-based system is built on the Microsoft software platform utilizing Microsoft’s most advanced technologies—and STARLIMS’s three-year product roadmap is geared to take advantage of many of the new .NET Framework capabilities. In addition, STARLIMS is a Microsoft Gold Certified partner, and enjoys the highest level of technological support and interaction with Microsoft.
