STARLIMS Content Manager : An End-to-End Solution Integrating LIMS, SDMS and ELN Functionalities

STARLIMS Corporation, a leading global provider of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), today announced an OEM agreement with EMC. Under the terms of the agreement, STARLIMS will embed EMC Documentum technology to provide integrated content management and collaboration capabilities for scientific, testing and research-centric organizations. The resulting solution, named the STARLIMS Content Manager, will be unique in that it will integrate LIMS, Scientific Data Management System (SDMS) and Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) functionalities into a single platform.


Data in scientific research is primarily unstructured and is not typically managed in a consistent fashion, making it difficult to implement systematic procedures necessary to ensure regulatory and legal compliance. By integrating the Documentum platform, STARLIMS will have a single end-to-end platform that enables customers to capture, manage, share and archive scientific data.


Barry Ruditsky, Vice President of Content Management Business Development, EMC Software Group said, “EMC’s platform strategy provides our partners content management software and enablement services to build world-class solutions that benefit our mutual customers. Our new relationship with STARLIMS will enable both companies to deliver best-of-breed content management solutions to meet the specific needs of scientific organizations.” 


“We are excited about this partnership, which will enable us to bring the gold standard in enterprise content management to laboratory and scientific environments,” said Itschak Friedman, President and CEO of STARLIMS Corporation. “This is a significant step in our long-term strategy of making LIMS a pivotal part of scientific knowledge generation and enterprise-wide collaboration. STARLIMS Content Manager will be integrated into STARLIMS Version 10, an entirely web-based LIMS that was released in March this year.”



“The scientific and analytical communities have made it quite clear that the ‘silos of information’ approach is not a viable option. They are seeking solutions that incorporate their disparate types of data—enabling users to efficiently store and reuse data rather than spend laborious hours alternating between different data repositories. I am delighted to hear of this new partnership between STARLIMS and EMC, which addresses this pressing market need,” said Michael Elliott, founder and president of Atrium Research, the leading scientific informatics market research firm.


As part the company’s new relationship with EMC, STARLIMS has also joined the EMC Documentum Application Developer Program. As a member, STARLIMS will receive specialized design consultation and guidance, along with access to dedicated Documentum technical resources to ensure that STARLIMS Content Manager meets the highest quality standards. 


The EMC Documentum Application Developer Program helps ISVs, VSPs and SIs target, design, develop and go-to-market with successful offerings based on the EMC Documentum platform. As a member, partners can submit their offering to be considered for “Designed for Documentum” accreditation, which ensures their offering has met all requirements to be certified on the Documentum platform.  To learn more about EMC Documentum Developer Application Program, please visit
