Exemplar Laboratory Information System for Tablets along with the new generation of tablets such as the Google Nexus 10, Samsung Galaxy Note™ 10.1 and iPad™ 2/3/4, allows lab technicians to work untethered from a desktop or laptop computer and to take Exemplar with them where they are working. Exemplar’s Lab Management Software for Tablets features a workflow-driven, responsive touch interface with intuitive mechanisms for common LIMS software needs like multi-selection, file loading, resizing and scrolling. Exemplar also addresses the limited screen real estate by converting into full screen, app mode when its workflows are running. Wireless barcode scanners can also be joined with the tablet allowing for barcode scanning directly into Exemplar, further improving lab technician efficiency.
