Laborinformationsmanagementsystem (LIMS)


Our Expertise for Your Objectives – your experts in LIMS (laboratory-information-management-system)


LABS/Q LIMS has been continuously developed based on our valued customers input, upcoming regulatory requirements and growing IT demands since 1986. More than 300 mid-size and large-scale national and multinational companies worldwide rely on our laboratory information and management system LABS/Q LIMS and use it most often as the central platform for R&D, in-process control, QA/QC, hygiene monitoring and environmental protection.


As a robust and highly flexible laboratory-information-management-system our LABS/Q LIMS has become a standard especially in the so-called process industry (pharma & biotech, chemical & petrochemical, food and beverage, cosmetics, automotive, etc.) and related contract laboratories, but it is also widely used in public laboratories mainly due to the easiness in industry-specific orientation and the high degree of automation.


Benefit from our long-lasting LIMS expertise to meet your goals in the lab. LABS/Q LIMS helps you to map your processes and workflows in a highly reliable and professional manner and with a maximum degree of automation, thus saving your time and costs.


With LABS/Q we offer a unique and highly integrated LIMS platform serving as an inter- & cross-functional solution for small, mid-sized and large scale laboratories belonging to different industry sectors.

Labor-Informations-Management-System mit branchenspezifischer Ausrichtung


Every industry sector, every customer and even every laboratory has individual requirements, which at first glance cannot be fulfilled by a standard off-the-shelf solution. However, because of the easiness to modify LABS/Q LIMS by means of configuration and customization, and its consistent modular structure already the standard edition may cover a minimum of 95% of our customers' requirements.


LABS/Q LIMS reporting capabilities

The built-in reporting module of LABS/Q LIMS already provides all necessary tools for generating, displaying, printing, faxing, emailing and editing of reports. More than 250 templates for reports, sample labels, certificates etc. are delivered with the standard edition of our laboratory-information-management-system and help to establish a rapid information flow from the beginning on.


  • Open Report Tool Interface 
  • Built-in interface to Crystal Reports, Jasper Reports, FreeEdit
  • > 250 predefined templates for report, certificates & sample labels
  • Automated report generation
  • Event-triggered report generation
  • Barcode and RFID support


Statistics and Control Chart Module for Result Evaluation

The standard solution of LABS/Q LIMS includes a graphical and statistical evaluation module for detailed and comprehensive analysis and visualization of analytical results. It covers a wide range of evaluation features like control chart functionality, run tests, statistical trend and outlier tests, moving averages, stability data pooling and shelf life trending and estimation according to the ICH guideline. 


Document Management System (DMS) integrated in the LIMS

The laboratory-information-management-system LABS/Q includes a completely integrated document management system (DMS) which is a strong tool for handling all your documents and attachments arround your LIMS. By this means, the integrated DMS helps you on your way to a paperless laboratory. The DMS tool includes support in administration of SOP doucments, archiving of raw data with support of the AnIML standard, full text search and various additional features. Use our LIMS-DMS solution to manage and archive your documents!


Additionaly the DMS serves as a central storage for raw data and can be used as a long-term archiving tool for raw data. Special built-in viewers allow to review data even without having the need to laoding these data into the original software. A unique functionality empowered by the new ANIMAL standard.


Modular Concept for Unrivaled Functionality

LABS/Q LIMS has been successfully established in various business areas like R&D, Production, QA/QC, Environment Protection & Hygiene Monitoring. Our customers arise from diverse industry branches: Chemistry/Petrochemistry, Pharma/Biotech, Automotive and the Food industry, just to mention a few of them.

The consequent modular structure of the LIMS brings functionality on demand and helps to save your money. The following function-specific modules are availabel to expand LIMS functionality: 

  • DoE-based optimization of chemical synthesis and galenic formulation development 
  • Analytical equipment and control types inventory
  • Stability & shelf-live studies 
  • Environment protection & hygiene monitoring
  • OOS management, actions and measures
  • Method validation
  • Raw data storage & long-term archive (ANIML)
  • SDMS
  • ELN
  • Chromatography data system



Automation is the key for increasing laboratory and overall buisness efficency. Special interfaces to laboratory instruments and business-relevant software layers help not only to automate worklows but also to avoid manual action and errors that may come up with it.


  • Unidirectional interfaces for simple laboratory devices
  • Bidirectional interfaces for complex instruments or control software
  • Bidirectional interfacees to laboratory software (CDS, ELN, SDMS)
  • Bidirectional interfaces to enterprise-relevant software systems (SAP, MES, PLS)
