Key features

Establish a vendor-independent data repository

Establish a vendor-independent data repository

  • Connect to 70+ AP instruments
  • Connect to instruments from other vendors with the AP Connect Instrument Adapter

AP Connect offers vendor-independent digitization and integration for various laboratory instruments, creating a unified and secure central data repository. This addresses common laboratory challenges such as partial digitization, data loss, and delays due to disparate systems, and enables immediate, real-time data access across the lab network. By streamlining data management, the AP Connect lab execution software not only enhances decision-making and data analysis but also ensures data security, thereby improving overall lab quality and efficiency.

Create a unified interface to your LIMS

Create a unified interface to your LIMS

  • Access data from across the company network
  • A single interface between all your instruments and your data management system

AP Connect serves as a middleware and digital datahub, harmonizing interfaces and data models from all connected laboratory instruments, regardless of vendor or type, for seamless integration with systems like LIMS and ELN. It addresses the challenge of integrating diverse instruments with dedicated interfaces into centralized systems, eliminating manual data entry and transfer errors. By automating data transfer and allowing customer-led configuration for various instruments, AP Connect reduces operational costs and efforts, ensuring a smooth and digital data flow to the leading data management system, with options for file-based communication or REST API.

  • Automated measurement scheduling and execution
  • Generate sample lists directly on a PC

AP Connect brings control to laboratory operations with its automated task execution system: measurements start directly from the software, and sample lists are generated on a PC, automating and streamlining instrument laboratory workflows. This lab execution software addresses inefficiencies such as time-consuming manual data entry on instrument interfaces, and facilitates error-free transfer of critical metadata like batch numbers and sample names. AP Connect enhances ease of use, increases productivity, and reduces operational costs by utilizing PC-based metadata sources and enabling full automation of laboratory processes, including integration with Xsample automation for completely automated measurement series.
