The LabLynx Enterprise Edition includes everything that all of the others do, except that the annual Service Plan is separate (whether cloud-hosted or self-hosted) and it is not a subscription-based license.
Remember that regardless of which edition you choose for your LIMS or LIS solution, you always need to factor in the hourly services involved for implementation, including:
- Setup & Training for both administrator(s) and users
- Report configuration
- Any special Customizations
- Any Integrations, e.g. to other systems/databases, instruments, services etc.
- Validation if required
"Example? Sure, here you go!"
OK, Let's suppose you have a commercial environmental lab with sixteen lab users. No more than ten would tend to be logged in to the LIMS at any one time. Remember, you can also have any number of outside clients submit samples and/or view their reports online with no additional charges if you have the portal implemented. You do testing for internal as well as outside clients, and they will submit their own test requests and view status and final reports. You do some specialized asbestos testing along with other types of testing including metals. You want three instrument interfaces. The webLIMS Enterprise Edition implementation includes sample tracking, customer tracking as well as document management, inventory management, and instrument maintenance and calibration. Also included is a portal for client access to results. Implementation of the GEN Sample Group module is anticipated and includes a barcoded sample label, bench worksheet and a standard result report. WebLIMS meets ISO 17025 and other accreditation requirements. Includes tracking samples. Here's how it might break down:
Note that the Service Plan is a separate annual subscription (Includes 24 annual Support Hours). If you prefer to host it on your own servers, add the Self-Hosting Fee of $4,500 per year to the annual Service Plan, which allows for additional access issues that may be encountered by the support and development teams.
