As discussed in Part 1, whether a system is based on HTML5 or XFD, the STARLIMS Technology Platform is its foundation. Uniquely designed, STARLIMS systems can be upgraded independently from the workflow and business rules of its Technology Platform. Part 2 will discuss System Interfacing Improvements, Greater Security, and Various Upgrades and Bug Fixes of the STARLIMS Technology Platform v12.1 Release.
System Interfacing, Abbott Informatics’ communication hub between STARLIMS and our business partners around the world, features a crucial upgrade in the TP v12.1 release. Introduced by the prior release, REST API capability has been strengthened, and its greater flexibility enables System Interfacing to be capable of simultaneously connecting with several users by utilizing the Open API specification.
Every modern laboratory is highly concerned about information security and data protection. Regular upgrades to the Technology Platform typically enhance STARLIMS security, conforming to both independent findings and industry recommendations.
TP v12.1 is now capable of using AES 256 bit for the encryption of PDF documents. The platform can now also utilize RSA as the default mode for every SFTP function in addition to implementing SHA 256 and SHA 512 hashing algorithms in SSL development.
Abbott Informatics seeks to improve technology where needed with every upgrade. The enhancements and fixes resolve problems found both in testing and as noted by customers. As with every upgrade, the TP v12.1 release is complimentary and is accompanied by an official Release Notes document that provides an extensive and comprehensive list of all the enhancements and fixes.
Implementing state-of-the art technology, STARLIMS provides a totally integrated solution that incorporates LIMS, Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN), Scientific Data Management System (SDMS), Advanced Analytics, and Mobile within a single application. This innovation makes building and maintaining custom interfaces required by third party tools unnecessary.
