SoftGroup® OneLAB is a laboratory data management system for efficient storage, management and reviewing of laboratory instruments data. The system distributes one set of necessary files to each laboratory instrument before the analysis including templates, methods, sequences, etc. After completion of the analysis, it collects result data from the instruments and stores it in one centralized database. The system supports HPLC, GC and dissolution instruments.
SoftGroup® OneLAB is an affordable solution for the efficient management of laboratory operations and assets. It is designed to accommodate common laboratory workflows, it is easy to deploy and use and can significantly increase your productivity.
SoftGroup® OneLAB is a client-server product, which consists of two parts:
Minimum requirements for normal functioning of the system are:
The workstations and the servers are connected to the LAN. SoftGroup® OneLAB Client is installed оn each workstation and the levels of access rights are set for the relevant employees. The database server maintains the database, stores all information and executes the current data exchange among different parts of the system in real time.
SoftGroup® OneLAB Server contains the administrative part of the system. It has the following functions:
SoftGroup® OneLAB Client is the client interface for working with the system. It is installed on the work stations (PC1, PC2, etc.) and is used for communication between the different instruments (HPLC Type 1, HPLC Type 2, HPLC Type 3, GC, SOTAX, etc.) and the centralized data server. The user can also review the result data after completion of the analysis.
SoftGroup® OneLAB can considerably increase your productivity. This is achieved through: •Secure central data storage•Instrument results review•Fast access to sample data, lab operations and assets•Automation of time-consuming tasks such as logbook maintenance
SoftGroup® OneLAB secures data through controlled access to files and functions specified by the system administrator. Login is mandatory, with an authenticated user ID and password. It simplifies security management by assigning users to typical laboratory roles and responsibilities. Centralized account and instrument management reduce the time needed to configure new instruments and add users because there is no need to replicate these tasks on each workstation.
SoftGroup® OneLAB is easy and affordable to deploy, administer and maintain. IT support is only needed to implement and maintain the network itself. The system can even be deployed in just a day if all the requirements are met. SoftGroup® OneLAB is designed to work with or without customization, depending on customer’s needs and preferences.
SoftGroup® OneLAB captures, tracks, and secures all files including master methods, sequences, and report templates with a complete revision history and tracking log. This functionality keeps information for the user activities and can be visualized by authorized operators. Every change, insertion or deletion of data is logged. The tracking log records any changes, storing updates as revisions allowing for easy review with complete traceability. These capabilities can dramatically reduce the time spent gathering information for an investigation.
The database provides a centralized way to organize, store, search and retrieve different types of files, including the data, methods, sequences and reports. There is no limitation for the number of supported laboratory instruments. As a result, data and documents are easy to find and share.
Many laboratories recognize the value in transitioning from paper-based to electronic processes and records. SoftGroup® OneLAB offers many features to aid in the transition to a paper-less system. The software’s electronic forms and records significantly reduce rework due to transcription errors, illegible or incomplete forms. Electronic forms also reduce tedious manual tasks such as scanning and photocopying documents for storage or sharing, walking paper documents between staff for sign-off, or finding documents when they are needed for an audit.
