Two Major STARLIMS Releases at Pittcon 2004

LIMS Functionality Published as Web Services

STARLIMS Web Services Framework enables enterprises to utilize core LIMS functionality without the need to develop specific interfaces between the LIMS and enterprise systems. This is achieved by publishing (aka “exposing”) LIMS functionality running sample tracking, results entry and quality analysis as industry standard Web Services.

A Web Service is a software system, whose public interfaces are described using XML, thus allowing other software systems to discover its definition and usage. Web Services interact between themselves using XML based messages.

Web-service based LIMS functionality, can be controlled and consumed by arbitrary information systems dependent on laboratory information such as a procurement system rejecting failed lots of raw material based on lab inspection results or a logistics system that quarantines a failed batch of finished goods suspected of contamination.

In the long term, the ongoing costs associated with the maintenance and validation of multiple interfaces is significantly reduced and STARLIMS traceability functions are readily accessible throughout the supply chain.

Next Generation Integrated Document Management 

STARLIMS Document Management offers a one-stop solution for managing scientific document and data in one familiar and compliant platform.  The next generation of document management, not only provides scientists with tools to securely store and share the original data and “picture” of the scientific report, but also enables meaningful extraction of the data, setting the ground for powerful querying and analysis of the information within STARLIMS.  This solution comes with enhanced XML rendering and parsing functionality allowing users to automatically retrieve knowledge from both structured and unstructured data.

STARLIMS rendering and parsing capabilities are powered by licensed technology from Liquent, Inc. the world’s leading provider of content assembly, publishing, and regulatory and intellectual property information solutions for the life sciences industry.
