Support for Win/Mac/Linux
Built upon Java technology, the LabImage platform and all of its modules will run on common operating systems. Additionally, the user interface always resembles the operating system’s look and feel – under Windows, MacOS X and Linux – without any need for emulation and with no performance loss.
Image analysis, Object detection
Using the excellent scientific image analysis libraries of ImageJ (NIH) and others, the LabImage Platform incorporates a considerable array of well-established standard image analysis algorithms as well as intelligent and trainable object detection methods.
Controlling of Laboratory Equipment
For many types of analyses, researchers struggle with managing several devices at once. Using the LabImage platform’s hardware control model, users can benefit from the easy integration of image acquisition hardware into the platform.
All LabImage platform applications can be combined with the highly advanced 21 CFR Part 11 (GLP, GMP) module, ensuring secure logging of all actions. A documented approval process, secure data storage and the prevention of data manipulation are essential for working in a GxP setting – the new LabImage module delivers it all.
Reporting and Data Export
The LabImage Platform is equipped with a customizable reporting tool. Users can have their analyses summarized and put in an easy-to-read format with just a few clicks. Every report can be saved to standard formats such as Word, Excel, PDF or TXT. While these standardized output formats are available for any type of analysis, the reporting processes can also be customized to fit even better into the preferred way of working.
Process Automation using Macros
The automation of processes is an important part in the analysis of image data in the life sciences and therefore plays an essential role in the LabImage Platform. Almost every analysis step can be automated and implemented in a macro. A macro can be applied to either single images or image stacks, forming the basis for high-throughput-screening. An macro editor can be used to create and modify macros.
The platforms intuitive user interface fits every user’s experience level. Beginners are supported by the unique LabImage Workflow Concept and power users can adapt every aspect of the analysis workflow just as it suits their needs. All LabImage Applications guide the user through the workflow and guarantee highly efficient step-by-step analysis. All analysis steps are lined up for fast access.
Flexible License Control, Network Licences
For the protection against unauthorized usage and to define individual feature packages, the LabImage Platform comes with a highly adaptable license management system. The customer can chose between stand-alone, network, time- or feature-limited, pay-per-use, as well as trial or demo versions. The license media can either be USB-dongles or file-based. Each license can be individually extended or upgraded any time.
Data Storage, Multi-User-Environments
The LabImage platform offers a single database solution for all application modules, delivering a ready-to-use embedded local database solution. Users benefit from full transparency and there is no need for individual configuration or database management.
