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.
With networked laboratory systems, management of user, lab and instrument data is simplified through the ability to centralize all system administrative needs.
Networked systems enable your lab employees to do sample processing, review, and approval securely from any location, using authorized systems.
Time to value
Expanding your laboratory is easier with networked systems. Adding additional instrumentation or PCs for laboratory personnel becomes a streamlined process.
With “Lab-at-a-Glance” capabilities, everything from lab-wide audit trails to operational dashboards is possible.
With networked computing, realize productivity gains and cost savings when adding additional instruments to the lab, with small incremental software purchases as shown below.
Note: The break-even point calculation for the 6 instruments is specific to scenarios where OpenLab CDS is deployed.
Networked computing FAQs
How is a network system different from a Workstation?
Workstations are individually configured and operated, and they are typically used for specialized applications. Networked systems use servers for shared resources such as data storage and configuration settings, and are typically designed to enhance connectivity, data access, and knowledge sharing.
What types of labs are networked systems designed for?
All labs can benefit from networked systems. Their value increases with the size of the lab.
How are networked computing and virtualization related?
Networked computing is a connected set of devices, PCs, and servers. For systems that may have multiple physical servers, virtualization is a way to deploy multiple server instances on a single host server. This improves support, disaster recovery while reducing operational costs.
Networked computing with OpenLab Software
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.
