The third layer of the LabLynx Informatics Platform is the Software-as-a-Service, or SaaS component, which comprises all of the various actual applications ("apps") available to LabLynx customers.


The term "ERP", or Enterprise Resource Planning system, is used to describe a total management system for a business. For the laboratory, LabLynx is your ERP – and your total support network.

In typically unique fashion, LabLynx stands out from standard LIMS vendors in offering a vast suite of business apps bundled with every LabLynx LIMS solution, comprising a comprehensive, ERP-level breadth of functions and features to address every aspect of lab management and data handling. Our firm belief is that your LIMS solution should be the complete answer to every one of your data management needs, from managing samples to designing a webpage and everything in between. And we also believe you should have it hosted for you and all at no extra costs - convenient, efficient, effective and full value at the lowest cost.

LabLynx LIMS

The LabLynx LIMS itself is at the core of your LabLynx LIMS solution. In and of itself, it is very much an ERP for your lab, offering world-class functionality and proven reliability. But more than that, it comes pre-tuned to your specific type of lab. That's because it was designed with immense user-configurability built in. It can be tailored to fit your exact terminologies, workflows and needs, no matter what type of lab you have. Each solution is already configured for your specific industry (see Industry Solutions), and then you can still tweak it any way you want during setup and training, so you have the prefect LIMS for you! Often the problem with having a perfect LIMS, though, is that as your needs change and time moves on, it becomes less "perfect". Again, the LabLynx LIMS avoids that pitfall, because you can make any changes you need to, quickly and easily, with hardly ever any need to contact us for help. That means your LIMS STAYS perfect for a long, long time - and YOU get maximum ROI (Return on Investment).

The LabLynx LIMS is web browser-based, and most of our customers prefer to leave the hosting and maintenance to us. However, if you need to host it on your own servers for any reason, that is also an option. Either way, there's no need to update individual workstations any time there are any changes, updates or upgrades. Users simply open a browser, go to the site (whether internal or in our LabLynx Cloud Infrastructure) and log in. You can have multiple lab locations using a single instance of your LIMS, and users can have different secure access profiles for each.
