Automated data acquisition(CSV)

Instrument integration has helped labs with automating the processes in the labs to minimize erroneous procedures. One of the key things that can cause error in manual data entry. LabCollector add-ons not only allow integration of instruments but also help in capturing data automatically from them. Our parsing add-ons help in acquiring complex data from instrument and break it down into its constituent parts to integrate the information automatically in LabCollector. Furthermore, our parser add-ons allow file parsing everywhere, from folders that are either shared locally or on cloud, making automated data acquisition easier than ever.

I-Collector Parser edition:

LabCollector is capable of bidirectional communication with our instrument automation parser I-Collector. I-Collector supports a growing number of instruments but we offer the development of any plugin needed for any of your lab instrument equipment. Results and values are automatically sent back to LabCollector or the LSM add-on as soon as the instrument releases them. I-Collector benefits from our API/WebService engine.

I-Collector main features:

  • Handles anything from simple file parsing up to complex bi-directional communication.
  • Ensures Data integrity and compliancy with FDA CFR21 part11.
  • Supports any protocol (RS232, USB, TCP/IP, files).
  • Ready to use instrument plugins (see list).
  • Custom logics (contact us)

Parser Addon

The Parser Add-on is a tool that provides file parsing anywhere using shared folders (local or cloud) and automatically import selected values into LabCollector.Files from instruments or from any other source can be read and imported in real time by using powerful automated cron/tasks. Setting up multiple reader models (or templates) is very easy and flexible, all made on the add-on interface. You only need to know a few things about the input files and where the data will go in LabCollector. This add-on will connect to the LabCollector API and do the job for you. The parser add-on accepts multiple file formats as data input: CSV, XML, JSON, Excel…>>Read more


Win2Parser

Win2Parser is a Windows middleware utility allowing automation of raw data files acquisition and treatment from multiple locations into LabCollector. Each instance can monitor multiple folders allowing dedicated logics. It connects to Parser add-on or to any customized parsing script hosted on LabCollector server.

A parser is an interpreter/compiler that breaks a data into its structured elements for easy translation. The files that are uploaded in the computer are split into parts, data is extracted and imported into the computer. Our LabCollector solution uses this functionality to parse files that are imported by our Win2Parser add-on. It provides an interface to select a folder from your windows computer to the LabCollector to parse files from. Such files require some type of read-write access and due to this we ensure to develop scripts that abide the regulations and do not hamper the data integrity. Win2Parser allows you to see logs containing changes done to the file. Data is extracted from various electronic file types such as txt, csv, and others. For example, in a test lab, a list of sample data (.csv fie) needs to be imported in LabCollector Sample module. To do this, our Win2Parser will help import the .csv file from windows computer in to LabCollector. LabCollector will parse (split & extract) data from the excel file to import individually, sample IDs, patient names, tests and other parameters to insert them in the fields created inside sample module. >>Read more
