Product News: BioTillion RFID BoxMapper Integration in AgileBio’s LabCollector v4.9

21 May 2013

LabCollector, the full web LIMS (laboratory information management system) provided by Agilebio, announce release of a new version (v4.9) supporting BioTillion’s RFID tube scanners.

LabCollector natively offers the ability to control remotely a wide range of 2D rack scanners: Micronic, BioMicroLab, ThermoScientific and FluidX. Today, LabCollector also provides full compatibility with Biotillion’s RFID BoxMapper series, enlarging its compatibility with the newest market products.

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a wireless technology that simplifies biobanks specimen tracking. Any equipment, embedding a RIFD tag, emits permanently its position to a receiver (scanner, antenna, mobile reader), itself connected over Internet or a local network. This means that, with minimum effort, all locations data collected by these receivers can be integrated, managed and visualized into LabCollector, the full web LIMS provided by AgileBio.

As an example, a LabCollector user in London, comfortably seated in his chair, can instantly visualize the arrangement of all his vials in the third rack of his fourth -180°C freezer located in Paris. Any change made on one of his storage box can be immediately reported into LabCollector database, ensuring permanent traceability.

Used in addition with TubeSorter, a LabCollector add-on capable of piloting an automated tube sorter robot (like the BioMicroLab XL-20), human factor error can be dramatically reduced.
