Mci IT Pty. Ltd. develops and distributes infrastructure management and laboratory informatics software solutions.


The company was founded in 2012.[1]

Sometime in 2022, the company removed its Lab-i, CLab-i, and i-Plant solutions from the website, in its place offering the "Cloud Solutions Suite," a combination laboratory information management system (LIMS), quality management system (QMS), and inventory and asset management solution.

Prior offerings

Lab-i was a laboratory information management system (LIMS) described as "extremely versatile, and it is the best way to manage your laboratory effectively."[2]

CLab-i appeared to be a LIMS similar to Lab-i but designed to address the needs of civil engineering labs.[2]

i-Plant is an "all inclusive integrated plant maintenance management system that aims to decrease downtime and increase productivity."[2]
