LabVantage Solutions, Inc. develops and distributes enterprise laboratory informatics software solutions.

History

LabVantage started off as Axiom Systems, which in April 1997 acquired Laboratory MicroSystems from Instron Corp. and formed a new company LabVantage Solutions.[1][2] LabVantage made another acquisition later that year, absorbing Automated Compliance Systems into its portfolio. By 1999 the company had decided to replace or rebrand most of its products with the "Sapphire" product line, featuring a configurable PC-based client-server architecture.[2] In the summer of 2011, the company rebranded its Sapphire and SQL*LIMS products to its company namesake.[3]

The company had a change of leadership in June 2013 with the introduction of Peter Bailey as the new CEO.[4]
