RURO Inc. develops and distributes laboratory informatics software solutions.
In late August 2017, Ruro announced that its FreezerPro sample management solution was acquired by Brooks Automation, Inc., which also acquired distribution rights to Ruro's BiobankPro. Ruro indicated on its website that its "customers will continue to receive RURO’s outstanding Support services through their existing Support Contracts. New FreezerPro customers will continue to find information about FreezerPro on RURO’s website until the transition" is complete, roughly to the end of 2017.
Technology and products
BiobankPro, ezColony, FreezerPro, LimitLIS, LIMS 24/7, and Sciency
BiobankPro "is a biorepository management system that provides dynamic specimen tracking, freezer, study and workflow management in the cloud or on premises." The company states that whereas "LimitLIS is tailored towards CLIA commercial testing labs and focuses on testing of patient samples ... BiobankPro focuses on clinical trial sample management and next-gen biobanking."
ezColony is laboratory data management software designed "automate the management of transgenic animal colonies as well as their facilities for scientific and medical research."
FreezerPro is software that "enables users to know precisely where a laboratory sample is located even before opening the freezer door." Note, however, that it will no longer be a Ruro-supported product at the beginning of 2018; Brooks Automation will be responsible for it.
LIMS 24/7 is a laboratory information management system (LIMS) that assists in "lessening demands on staff, ensuring the accuracy of results or other entered content, and providing the 'big picture' to management in real-time."
Sciency is an electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) that acts as "a scalable, integrated research environment for managing and sharing data within a robust framework that protects valuable intellectual property, streamline laboratory processes and supports 21 CFR Part 11 compliance." The software comes in a Standard and Enterprise edition. Enterprise edition-only features include data encryption, the ability to set up user groups, automated backups, and "gold support."
