The LIMS
for startup labs

Get off to a professional start immediately with SAMPLES
and grow sustainably!

Made in Germany by passionate lab people

Your processes are challenging and not standard. This makes it all the more important to have them perfectly under control right from the start with a professional LIMS. SAMPLES offers a wide range of customization options – also for your specific application.

Thanks to the integrated audit trail, you can even take a relaxed approach to documentation and the obligation to provide evidence.

Many LIMS slow down your drive.

Traditional laboratory information systems are often not suitable for dynamic start-ups:

  • Staggering range of functions in a 90s look
  • Methods must be programmed
  • Expensive initial investment through purchase
  • Operation on own servers necessary
  • 20-30 year old technologies
  • Connecting devices means expensive projects
  • Vendor lock-in

With SAMPLES you really step on the gas.

The solution for efficient, reproducible laboratory processes is laboratory automation with SAMPLES.

  • Start with monthly rent
  • No additional costs for servers, interfaces, etc.
  • Simply set up methods yourself
  • Microsoft cloud technology and security
  • Latest device interfaces
  • Ready for laboratory automation
  • Generic web interfaces for further developments

Start immediately without risk

SAMPLES is a web app and can be used immediately. There is no need for a complex and expensive implementation project or lengthy training courses.

See for yourself in our introductory video. You can also download your free trial version from the Microsoft Store AppSource.

We also offer you attractive price models – including monthly terms that keep you independent and flexible.

Maximum flexibility for your application

As a web app, SAMPLES is available to you at any time and on the move – ideal for young, distributed teams or for working on research projects.

But SAMPLES also offers you maximum technical performance and connectivity: thanks to the open software architecture (GraphQL) and state-of-the-art interfaces, there are virtually no limits to your possibilities.

    Your individual configuration

    In SAMPLES you can easily set up everything yourself: parameters, methods, sample types, studies, etc.

    For even more customization, simply use user-defined fields and catalogs to map your individual process.

    Orders, test plans and interfaces

    You determine which tests are to be carried out with each of your samples.

    If your samples are related to external test orders, these orders can simply be transferred to SAMPLES via an interface. The measurement results also find their way safely back to the client if required.

    Linked methods and storage locations

    There are many methods in your laboratory, but only one that is suitable for your examination – SAMPLES knows which one.

    Do you have a sample that prefers it cool and/or dark? SAMPLES knows the preferences of your sample types and suggests a suitable storage location.

    Back to the future with Audit Trail and Timeline

    Nothing is as constant as change. By versioning the methods, you ensure that no old protocols are used, but you can trace when which version was used.

    Thanks to Audit Trail, you can track who made which changes and when at any time.

    Carry out an examination

    The Lab Execution System (LES) from SAMPLES guides you step by step through the necessary activities of a method. At the same time, you record consumables, interact with devices and measure parameters.

    With SAMPLES, you are ideally equipped to automate your processes in the future. Whether device interactions or evaluations, everything can be automated.

    Laboratory automation with a click

    Adding a device interaction to a method is easy for anyone in the lab. Three interaction options are available:

    • Read values from fields to transfer them to the device.
    • Receive values from the device and transfer them to a field.
    • Perform action on the device.

     

    Export your data

    You can export your sample lists, storage location allocations and all your measurement results to Excel at any time for further use as required.

    Let us show it to you personally in a demo appointment.

    Maximum security of your data

    We offer you the option of hosting SAMPLES in the Microsoft Cloud.

    The security of your data is important to you. Us too. That is why we pay special attention to data security – without compromise.

      FAQ

      General questions about SAMPLES

      ;
      :
      What is SAMPLES and how can it help my laboratory?

      SAMPLES is a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), but also a Lab Execution System (LES).

      Depending on how you use it, you can use SAMPLES to manage all the information about your laboratory equipment (devices, consumables, methods, etc.) and the laboratory routine, i.e. the samples and details of their analysis. You can even automate your processes by connecting devices and other software systems.

      ;
      :
      What kind of samples and data can I manage with SAMPLES?

      From waste water to tensile tests, everything has its place. SAMPLES is the chameleon among LIMS systems. Basically, all departments can be set up with the specific devices, methods and sample types. Do you have special parameters? No problem, you can even configure measured variables and units yourself and add to them at any time!

      ;
      :
      Is the LIMS compatible with other systems used in the laboratory?

      Of course. SAMPLES is an absolute team player! Depending on which interface the other system offers, we can implement the connection to all possible systems (ERP, CRM, order portals, etc.). Connection to device and measuring systems for the automation of your laboratory processes is also possible.

      Questions about use

      ;
      :
      How do I start setting up SAMPLES?

      As a rule, it makes the most sense to start with a laboratory process incl. of all master data, etc. in SAMPLES and to refine it over a test period. With the knowledge gained, it is easy to gradually transfer further processes.

      The system makes it easy to set up, but you still need time to set it up. No problem! We also offer the setup of your systems as a service. You determine the scope, from start-up assistance to complete set-up, everything is possible.

      ;
      :
      Can I import existing data into the LIMS and how does it work?

      Yes, in principle you can import existing data in different places. The decisive factor here is the form in which the required data is available. We can support you with this as part of the system setup.

      ;
      :
      How can I generate and customize reports?

      Once the measurement results have been approved, you can create a report for each order. To do this, you need just one click to automatically generate a PDF report from the stored template and attach it. You can even adjust which data appears in the report during the test.

      Questions about the operation

      :
      ;
      What operating models are there?

      SAMPLES is usually hosted on our Microsoft Azure Cloud. However, if necessary, it can also be rolled out on premise on your servers.

      :
      ;
      How does the LIMS secure my data and guarantee data protection?

      As part of our quality and IT security management, we place the highest value on the security of your data.

      The systems are usually hosted on our Microsoft Azure Cloud and benefit from Microsoft's high security standards. However, if necessary, they can also be rolled out on premise on your servers.

      In cloud mode, the data can be stored either in Western Europe (standard hosting) or on servers in Germany (premium hosting).

      :
      ;
      What happens if I do not have a connection to the Internet?

      SAMPLES is a web application. Data created in SAMPLES is stored online or in your internal network if you opt for the on premise version.

      A stable Internet connection is required for cloud operation. We offer an optional offline-capable app for sampling.

      :
      ;
      How are updates and upgrades for SAMPLES handled?

      SAMPLES is alive and growing. Our development team works daily to add and improve features. Technical updates are provided regularly, and we offer you extended functionality as an optional upgrade.
