Main Features of LabImage LA

Intuitive User Interface
LabImage LA is developed for evaluation of strip based tests like lateral flows, line assays, immuno- and western or southern blots. It increases the efficiency of any strips analyses process. Our application provides a scalable software environment for various strip based tests.

External Graphical Editor
LabImage LA is the first application worldwide providing an extern graphical editor for strip test creation. Therefore the application is simple to handle and has an extremely user-friendly interface. New tests can easily be loaded into the analysis. Image analyses parameter and views are individual adaptable to customer requirements. New tests can be created in minutes and validated without any modification of main application and workflow.

Unique Well Detection Technique
LabImage LA provides precise well-detection within the sample trays. With this new recognition technique a unique strip allocation to the respective patient is possible.

Fault-tolerant Software
LabImage LA is capable to detect stripes in trays which are not in the perfect position. Even if they lie in the tray, the program can then detect and analyze the stripes correctly. The program also is able to spot stripes with damaged heads. Sometimes the heads are teared off if they were handled with forceps.

Fully Automated Strip Analysis
LabImage LA is characterized by an extreme high level of automation and standardization. In this way the application is able to prevent errors and costs. LabImage LA recognize strips very precisely. Even strips having shadows and high or uneven background level are detected in a single step. Analysis rules can be created using the built-in graphical rules editor.

LabImage LA includes a vendor independent integration into any laboratory information and management system (LIMS) to exchange data. It provides easy and secure data mapping, conversions tools and script based data handling. An adaptable acquisition module allows to scan or import strip image files.
