Oil and Gas is a high-technology industry, where companies, scientists, and engineers continually challenge the barriers of what is possible in order to find and produce energy. New techniques and technologies discovered through R&D have been vital in enabling the industry to meet global energy demand, and will continue to be vital as the industry overcomes current and future challenges. To address the world’s energy needs and demands over the coming years, a substantial increase in energy research and development (R&D) is required.

The key to LabWare’s historical success as a solution in R&D comes from the tremendous breadth of product functionality that can be rapidly configured to support virtually any scientific process. Standardizing on LabWare’s strategic ELP platform will give your R&D organization the flexibility to grow in a challenging and changing environment.

The LabWare Petrochemical R&D platform (LIMS and ELN) offers many tools for the R&D scientist, such as flexible project management capabilities to coordinate and manage all related work in an entire project, comprehensive sample, test, and result management capabilities including the ability to tailor workflows relative to each type of sample and research discipline. You can easily attach observations and conclusions, instrument reports, files, and images to virtually any experimental data. And also create reusable reports with LabWare’s seamless integration with leading reporting tools such as Crystal Reports and MS Office - including submission ready reports rendered in a secure Adobe PDF format. LabWare’s platform embraces industry standards - ; and while being very secure, it provides the freedom to data mine the relational database, summarize and export data easily to other third-party software and statistical applications. Data trending, charting, and visualization capabilities are provided natively within the LabWare platform for most common comparisons and summarizations.

Configurable Off-The-Shelf Software:

One of the most compelling advantages of the LabWare LIMS and ELN solution is its ability to be rapidly tailored through configuration, not customization, in order to meet your specific needs in the lab and enterprise requirements such as system interfaces to key business software and in-house databases. LabWare provides over 250 purpose-built software modules to enhance the LabWare core LIMS and ELN software foundation - thus offering unmatched out of the box functionality in the market. LabWare’s advanced software architecture enables the product suite to be extended without requiring you to move to the next version or to re-validate your system - an overwhelming advantage that most LabWare customers find truly compelling. The real “Game Changing Technology” however is LabWare’s tremendous extensibility through configuration. Configuration allows your organization the freedom to tailor our application to meet your specific needs without worrying that it might affect your support or upgradability.

Interoperability

LabWare’s software is built to interoperate with virtually any type of instrument software, business software, and even custom in-house developed databases and software you may have in your organization. We offer out of the box software modules that interface with most common software applications and instrument systems used in all industries, as well as offering a full suite of tools that allow you to create one way or bi-directional interfaces to other systems. LabWare’s adherence to industry standards and open architecture includes Web Services – which means you will never be locked out from creating point-to-point interface solutions or connecting the LabWare platform to an Enterprise Service Bus product to future proof your R&D organization from constant change and technological advancement.
