LabWare, Inc. develops and distributes enterprise laboratory informatics software solutions.
LabWare was founded in 1987 by mechanical engineer and entrepreneur Vance Kershner, who "targeted the laboratory automation space as something [he] could contribute to because it was not very effective at the time."
On March 8, 2015, the company announced version 7.0 of its LabWare LIMS and ELN, featuring performance enhancement, functionality improvements, a new user interface, and improved mobile support.
Sometime in the spring or summer of 2020, LabWare introduced LabWare GROW, a modified version of LabWare LIMS for cannabis testing labs. This seems to have occurred shortly after introducing it's cloud-based LabWare LIMS solution in early 2020.
LabWare LIMS won a Frost & Sullivan Product Quality Leadership Award in 2004, and the company won Frost and Sullivan's "2008 European Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) Company of the Year Award."
Technology and products
LabWare ELN, LabWare LIMS, and LabWare GROW
LabWare ELN is an electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) "designed to give laboratory scientists the ultimate platform to electronically document their experiments, including relevant scientific content and observations, instrument results, and attachments such as spectra, chromatograms and, if appropriate, chemical structures."
LabWare LIMS is a laboratory information management system (LIMS) which includes "browser-based deployment, external-facing web portals, and fully configurable web services." The software consists of the core LIMS application with access to LabWare's library of LIMS software modules. The software also includes clinical, LIS-like functionality.
LabWare GROW is a modified version of LabWare LIMS but designed for cannabis testing. The platform is advertised to help "cannabis-based product manufacturers and CBD/THC testing laboratories streamline production quality control and product research activities." Features that help these labs include interfacing with third-party platforms and software solutions (e.g., seed-to-sale, ERP), industry-tailored test workflows, integration with analytical instruments, an analytical documentation library, and support for ISO/IEC 17025, including document management, training management, and corrective action management. The LIMS is cloud-based and appears to be one of the first cloud-based offerings offered by LabWare.
