LIMS for Service Labs - Maximize Lab Efficiency

Independent service labs need to increase customer satisfaction

Service Labs

Lab information has to be available 24/7 for customers to follow up their analysis. SIMATIC IT Unilab offers functionality to support direct customer interaction, immediate cost calculation for analysis requests and automated invoicing. This reduces the number of entry-errors, decreases administrative workload for the lab staff, and increases customer satisfaction.


User Management
Access definition is possible
per user or user-group
- to applications or functionality
- to data (read/write)
Single sign on for Windows users is possible
Full audit trail of user actions.

As access to your LIMS is possible from outside the company’s network, the most innovative and stringent
security measures are in place to protect your data.


Adapt your LIMS to your lab requirements through configuration of the application (over 80% of functional configuration can be done by your own staff).
There is no need for modifications to the standard software. No IT staff or vendor involvement is required.

The configuration approach guarantees your full benefit
from functional enhancements
in future releases.


The browser based approach considerably limits the need for hardware and software handling, as no application rollout is required and any device running a web browser can be used. Easy network set-up and LIMS integration with other systems based on the flexible and scalable architecture.

The back-up and archiving procedures enable the availability of historic data as well as real-time data.
