Connecting Large-Scale Laboratory Analysers with Provet Cloud

Overview

Laboratories often want to improve their efficiency by reducing the required manual steps in their laboratory workflows. Many of these steps can be optimised by integrating the laboratory analysers used at the laboratories.

Large-scale laboratory analyser devices (e.g. Cobas, Immulite, Siemens etc.) used in large central laboratory facilities can be connected to Provet Cloud using an additional connectivity program called LabTerm. LabTerm is developed by our partner company Tietoniksi.

LabTerm can provide one-way or two-way integrations for compatible laboratory analyser devices. With the two-way connectivity, you can send requests to the analyser and get results from the analyser using Provet Cloud. Functionality is dependent on the capabilities of the analyser as well: some support one-way connectivity, some two-way connectivity.

A Windows computer is required for installing the connectivity software near the analyser devices, as the analysers are often connected with RS232 cables. The following diagram illustrates the common connectivity setup:

The LabTerm integration software is provided as an additional feature to Provet Cloud and licensed per analyser device. Pricing can be quoted once the actual makes and models of the devices to be integrated are known. This also requires that we have the connectivity description available from the laboratory analyser's provider. The most commonly used format to communicate between an analyser and Labterm is ASTM protocol, which is transferred over a serial port communication (RS232) cable. On-site setup days are commonly required for this connectivity.

Verifying connectivity options requires further discussion with our specialists.  Please contact sales@provet.info to discuss your specific connectivity options.
