WESTcom Logiciels et Services SARL develops and distributes laboratory informatics and enterprise management software solutions.


Sometime between February and March 2016, the company removed its EDIlab and LimsOnLine products from its website[1][2] and are presumably no longer offered.

Technology and products


ARES is a modular laboratory information management system (LIMS) for administrative, regulatory and commercial laboratories involved in sectors like animal health, environment, hydrology, and food hygiene.[3]

Old offerings

EDIlab was a version of ARES LIMS dedicated to France's SIGAL (or "Sigal") project[4], a Ministry of Agriculture effort that allows health veterinarians to electronically transmit bovine health inspection data.[5]

LimsOnLine was a web-based version of ARES LIMS available under the software as a service (SaaS) model.[6]
