Streamline laboratory management with OpenLab networked solutions

Networked Solutions for Your Lab
Break down data silos with networked systems

Whether your growing lab has system scaling issues or needs remote access to lab data, networked computing is a failproof solution.

Agilent OpenLab
  • Central administrationCentral administration: With networked laboratory systems, management of user, lab and instrument data is
    simplified through the ability to centralize all system administrative needs.
  • Remote accessibilityRemote accessibility: Networked systems enable your lab employees to do sample processing, review, and
    approval securely from any location, using authorized systems.
  • Time to valueTime to value: Expanding your laboratory is easier with networked systems. Adding additional instrumentation
    or PCs for laboratory personnel becomes a streamlined process.
  • New featuresNew features: With “Lab-at-a-Glance” capabilities, everything from lab-wide audit trails to operational
    dashboards is possible.
  • Cost savingsCost savings: With networked computing, realize productivity gains and cost savings when adding additional
    instruments to the lab, with small incremental software purchases as shown below.

Networked computing with OpenLab Software
OpenLab CDS Client/Server

The move to networked OpenLab CDS configurations can improve your overall lab operations through centralization. Instead of having to manage user and instrument setups across individual workstations, you can do it all system-wide from a single location.

You can monitor and control all key elements–administration, methods, sequences, data storage, and instruments—either locally or centrally. You can also centralize data and methods and ensure secure system backups.

In addition, an OpenLab network solution provides labs with a door to the future. Our networked offerings can be connected to the cloud, enabling cutting edge IT tools and services to be utilized by your lab.

Benefits in the lab
For lab managers
Lab Managers
  • Lower cost of ownership:
    • Single software platform for the entire lab makes it easier to
      train and support users
    • Less expensive and faster to add instruments
    • Full backwards compatibility for raw data, methods, workflows, and results
  • Fewer mistakes and more transparency (through lab-wide audit trails)
  • Innovative features and technical controls for regulatory compliance
For lab personnel
Lab Managers
  • Eliminate the need to configure, manage, support lab workstations when
    IT manages centrally
  • Collaborate with colleagues with ease, regardless of location
  • Access to all instruments and data from your desktop
For IT
Lab Managers
  • Centralized system administration and management for maximum uptime
  • Lowest possible hardware and support costs for a networked implementation
  • Industry-standard architecture accommodates laboratory growth
  • Future-ready: data storage is scalable to cloud (AWS)
