LabVantage 8.8 Delivers More Power, Reliability, and Value

Exemplifying a commitment to continuous improvement, LabVantage 8.8 increases the accuracy, speed, usability, and security of the LIMS platform. Notable enhancements include:

  • Intelligent approvals – Applies rules-based AI to streamline and speed data reviews. Manual approvals are enabled by exception only, as automatic approvals take place unless there is an exception.
  • Automatic redo calculations – If users forget to manually re-calculate values, it can affect final, intermediate, and downstream accuracy. Automatic redo calculations automatically triggers re-calculation when a reference is modified to improve accuracy and data quality.
  • Cyber protection – Enhanced security against OWASP Top 10 threats, and includes third-party certification of testing.
  • Accessibility – LabVantage Portal is certified for compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) international standard, Section 508, to provide increased accessibility to the platform.

LabVantage 8.7 Introduces Secure Web Portal

The latest version of LabVantage LIMS includes a redesigned web portal that lets LabVantage customers extend appropriate access rights to their clients outside the laboratory. This new Portal protects customers’ valuable and sensitive data, while eliminating the need for manual requests for tests and other services.
A new, next-generation user interface makes Portal features easier than ever to use for those outside the lab needing access to data but who are not familiar with LIMS.

LabVantage 8.7 Highlights:

  • A secure customer self-service web Portal for external clients of the lab, ensuring faster and more complete client-submitted requests and direct access to more meaningful information and data.
  • Customers’ choice of “apps” that deliver various functions, such as Portal account management, request submissions, status tracking and test-results viewing, and requests for test kits.
  • Simple and intuitive user experience with clean, cockpit-style screens that allow users to navigate safely, efficiently, and with little or no training.
  • Lab administrator self-support leveraging existing LabVantage knowledge of functions, configuration tools, and other skills.

LabVantage 8.6 and Cybersecurity

With our newest release, LabVantage 8.6 takes a much more proactive approach to cybersecurity. While LabVantage LIMS has always been secure, system security takes on an even higher priority in our product and our company culture – making our platform an exceptionally breach-resistant addition to your technology stack.

LabVantage 8.6 Highlights

Hacks and breaches are headline news. LabVantage 8.6 takes this head on with:

  • The adoption of SonarQube to evaluate and scan source code for potential vulnerabilities
  • Expanded use of Atlassian’s Jira software to track code more closely and increase the visibility of potential security issues during development
  • Magic-byte detection – a list of file signatures and data that can identify or verify file contents to ensure malicious files cannot be uploaded and to review third-party libraries, guaranteeing legacy libraries and plug-ins were upgraded
  • A partnership with a third-party cybersecurity firm to regularly perform ongoing, objective penetration testing of the LabVantage platform
  • Monitoring of the OWASP Top 10, which tracks the top current critical risks to web-based applications like LabVantage LIMS
  • Training internal staff as Certified Ethical Hackers

LabVantage 8.5 Highlights

Scientific Data Management System

  1. Immediately capture externally generated data, whether from complex instruments, real-time data sources or incoming emails and other file sources (e.g., local drives, file shares)
