Industry Laboratory informatics
Headquarters Salamanca, Spain

SLCLAB Informática SL develops and distributes laboratory informatics software.


SLCLAB informally began as "Salamanca Laboratorio Clínico SA" in the early 2000s.[1] After working in the informatics department of the laboratory for several years, several members of the IT staff branched off separately in 2007 and formed a new entity SLCLAB Informática to further develop software analysis tools for laboratories.[2][3][4]

A few years later Salamanca Laboratorio Clínico merged with another company[5], formally dissolving in September 2009.[6] As of 2014 SLCLAB still develops and distributes its laboratory informatics products.
