Public Health Labs

Public health labs serve an important mission.

  • Monitoring our environment for natural and manmade contaminants that threaten our health.
  • Surveilling and detecting pathogens in foods and the food supply to keep us safe.
  • Identifying and analyzing infectious diseases and testing populations to maintain optimal health. Today, that means meeting the COVID-19 testing challenge head on.

Critical to this broad mission: the accurate accessioning of samples on the front end, and, on the back end, the reporting of results and findings to the governmental agencies that can take action to improve public health.

Informatics Makes the Difference

While labs across government – federal, state, municipal – have varying budgets and resources, all are tasked with doing more with less.

State-of-the-art laboratory informatics solutions can increase efficiency, reduce errors, handle high testing volumes, address a wide range of analytical needs, and protect patient privacy and data security. When delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS), these solutions deploy rapidly and conserve capital budgets.

The LabVantage LIMS platform – including an embedded electronic lab notebook, lab execution system, and scientific data management system – improves public health lab operations by automating tasks, eliminating paper, and integrating with instruments and other systems – like electronic health and medical records. For hospital, reference, and other medical lab settings performing public health tasks, LabVantage Medical Suite is a laboratory information system dedicated to patient-centered testing and reporting.

Environmental Health

LabVantage LIMS is easily configured – no coding required – to handle the analytical requirements for air, water, and soil testing and biomonitoring to identify and eliminate health threats, whether microbiologic, chemical, or radiologic.

Food Safety

Because we’ve served the Food & Beverage industry for decades, and developed a prepackaged accelerator for food manufacturing quality, LabVantage LIMS is uniquely prepared to serve public health labs engaged in foodborne pathogen testing and food supply monitoring.

Infectious Disease/Screenings

From routine public health screenings to responding to outbreaks, labs need informatics solutions that automate accessioning and reporting for effective public health management. This includes advanced molecular detection capabilities like next-generation sequencing and bioinformatics. LabVantage offers both a laboratory information management system (LIMS) and a laboratory information system (LIS) to serve the breadth of human disease testing and monitoring performed by public health labs.

COVID-19 Testing

Public health labs have stepped up to the challenge of COVID-19 testing – but struggle to keep up with the volume of testing required to stem the rate of SARS-CoV-2 infection. LabVantage COVID-19 LIMS was developed for rapid deployment with built-in OMICS workflows, CDC test methods, and pre-populated master data. Because it’s a full-featured LIMS, LabVantage COVID-19 LIMS can be easily adapted to address all your public health workflow challenges, even after the pandemic has passed.

Rapid Deployment

LabVantage LIMS is available on-premise, cloud-hosted, or, for fastest deployment, via SaaS. Because our solutions have so much functionality out of the box, and are easily configured for specific needs, they can be up and running rapidly.

Compliance

LabVantage ensures your lab complies with regulations – whether CLIA, 21 CFR Part 11 and Annex 11, HIPAA and GDPR – and standards. Data integrity and security are built into our solutions.
