ABOUT - BIOBANKING LIMS LABA

LABA is a laboratory and biobanking management system that allows users to describe, locate and use materials, patient samples and storage facilities. It is an integrated system accessed by one login.

Who can use our
Biobanking LIMS:

  • Biomedical Laboratories
  • Hospitals
  • Forensic Laboratories
  • Diagnostic Laboratories

LABA - MODULES

LABA modules include Reagents, Virtual Storage, Biobanking and Lab Diary. They are easy to navigate and use thanks to shared basic principles and functions.

  • ReagentsIntuitive interface finds reagents fast, shows location
    and quantity. Biobanking LIMS stores details of correct usage, speeding the progress of your research.
     
     
  • Virtual storageCreate virtual copies of freezers. Check the box content, track location and quantity. See at a glance where free space is located. Expiry warning avoids waste. Simplify freezer cleaning when you track material by user.
     
  • BiobankingComply with data protection regulations in patient sample management. Biobanking LIMS can use barcodes, making sample labelling, search and access simple. Track samples by patient. With information stored on location and number of stored vials, planning your experiments is a breeze.
  • Lab diaryLab Diary simplifies experiment record
    -keeping, providing an intuitive interface
    for entering and describing experiments
     
     
     
     

Reagents

The Reagent Module has all the information you need about molecular and cellular tools so researchers can quickly see:

What is available? / How much do we have? / Where is it?

Efficient resource use! With LABA, the lab can keep details of proper usage, avoiding unnecessary experiments and saving the lab time and money by providing a knowledge base of correct use of reagents.

What you get:

  • Describe, list and search reagents in your lab.
  • Ready access to important details
  • Ensure optimal usage
  • Control quantity and expiry of stored reagents
  • Track location of stored vials

The Reagent Module is divided into sections tailored to each reagent type: antibodies, oligonucleotides, plasmids, cell lines, chemicals and other types. Select the required tool’s type and search intuitively, quickly finding and locating the tool you need!

Optimal usage details are in a card specifically structured for each reagent type, enabling lab members to easily enter and update details like dilutions, buffer composition or growth conditions. Researchers can quickly know how to optimally use reagents. Moreover, each card contains number and locations of stored vials – and, most importantly, the lab can define 2-level quantity alarms to track the number of stored vials.

Each category contains mandatory data, so no important data will be omitted during data entry and the lab is always ready for optimal use of material. Specific design features make data entry minimal, fast, and easy.

Virtual Storage

With VIRTUAL STORAGE you can create digital copies of freezers, liquid nitrogen tanks, refrigerators or any other storage facilities you may have. Then choose precise positions for storing and let the system do the rest. Track how lab members occupy storage space to see what is stored, when and by whom, for easiest possible freezer clean-up.

What you get:

  • Create digital versions or lab's storage facilities
  • Store material and track stored items by date and user
  • Find free space by mouse click
  • Monitor storage facilities use

With Virtual Storage, the lab generates digital versions of its storages, creating freezers, liquid nitrogen tanks or cupboards with no limitations on how you organise and run the lab. User chooses precise positions and places reagents into virtual storage. Easy access to information about stored items, their location and quantity.

The user has full control of stored content. At every instant you know which positions are occupied. A very important feature is that only previously defined items can be stored – so there’s no re-entering of item names and therefore no errors. You can track each lab member’s stored material and easily take a virtual tour through storage to quickly detect free space.

Enjoy fast and user-friendly storage management.

Researchers can add expiry alarms with four levels to ensure timely usage and enable lab members to plan their activities on time.

Finally, you can see all storage facilities from one place. The homepage displays updated content and free space and, with listed reagents and alarms, gives the lab a comprehensive overview of all storage and stored material.

Biobanking

Navigating our Biobanking module is easy, with simple access to patient data, consent forms and clinical samples and suitable for all types of clinical material: body fluids, tissues, isolated gDNA, RNA, and paraffin-embedded tissues. AND it’s connected to our handy virtual storage! So you can easily track stored samples and control their number and location.

What you get

  • Easy to navigate patient data and clinical sample management system
  • Full compliance with GDPR and FDA 21 CFR Part 11
  • Barcode use if required
  • Tracking of location and amount of stored material.

Fine-tuning of user rights ensures controlled access to patient data. Barcodes are available to manage patient samples, and you can upload patient consent – so our biobanking fully complies with GDPR and FDA 21 CSF Part 11.

LABA biobanking is structured in three parent-child connected parts. The first is the patient registry which holds patient contact and general data and where you can add an unlimited number of tissues, so it’s always possible to check the history of all tissues obtained from a patient. You can, though, also access tissues in the second part, a clinical sample repository to which diagnosis details can be added as well as adding cell lines and isolated DNA and RNA to a sample. Once again, isolates can be accessed directly from the third part. This parent-child structure makes it easy to access and manage different sections of the biobank.

Finally, our virtual storage tracks locations of stored clinical samples. Easily detect stored material, find important details, assign quantity and/or expiry alarms and so maintain full control over valuable samples.

Lab diary

Lab Diary manages experiments and their results, acting as an Electronic Laboratory Notebook suitable for both individual and collaborative research. The lab can track used reagents and tools, and so the diary helps the lab to accumulate knowledge and speed up research.

What you get:

  • Manage experiments and results.
  • Add unlimited amounts of analysis to any experiment
  • Filter experiments by cellular and animal model.

The Lab Diary’s intuitive interface makes it easy to enter and describe experiments. The user assigns an experiment to a project and so the lab can follow each project’s progress. The user also adds analyses to each experiment, which is useful for several reasons. Complex experiments involving many analyses will have grouped results, making interpretation of an experiment easier. Where analysis requires optimisation, the diary will help document the steps to solve technical details.

The Lab Diary also makes it possible to track molecular and cellular tools used in experiments, bringing several advantages. For one, the lab can easily compare the performance of cellular or animal models in different experiments and so detect a change in performance and look for a potential reason. For another, the lab accumulates knowledge and unnecessary experiments are prevented, speeding up the lab’s research.

Most importantly, each research team member keeps his/her own Lab Diary and decides which results will be shared with the team — but, when the research is finalised, corresponding experiments become accessible to all team members. Furthermore, lab members can list and search experiments by several criteria, so finalised experiments provide a valuable knowledge base about the performance of applied cells, organisms, clinical samples, reagents and chemicals.
