STARLIMS Corporation developed and distributed laboratory informatics software solutions.


STARLIMS Technologies Ltd. was founded by Itschak Friedman and incorporated under the laws of the State of Israel in May 1986. In November 1993, STARLIMS completed an initial public offering of its ordinary shares, which have traded on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange since.[2] The company made a public offering in the United States in May 2007 and was introduced to the NASDAQ under the Stock Market under the symbol LIMS.[2][3]

In August 2008, the Company announced the establishment of STARLIMS Europe as a result of the May 2008 acquisition of its United Kingdom partner Lab Data Management Ltd., based in Bolton, Greater Manchester.[4]

In late 2009 it was revealed Abbott Laboratories would acquire all outstanding equity of STARLIMS Technologies.[5]The deal was finalized on March 22, 2010 for a published cost of $123 million.[6]

On May 30, 2014, STARLIMS Corporation officially changed the name of its Florida-based headquarters to Abbott Informatics Corporation.[1] However, it wasn't until October 2015 that the company shifted its web presence, dropping the STARLIMS Corporation name in full.[7][8]
