License Fees

Licenses for LabLite products are a one time cost. Other vendors charge licenses fees. They also charge to renew their licenses each year, and may also have per seat or “user” charges.

LabLite will support your growth without additional costs per user.

Additional Users

LabLite does not charge extra for additional users or network "seats". The ability to utilize LabLite SQL LIMS can only limited by the hardware at your site.


Some LIMS providers charge per module. By the time that you purchase all of their "modules" you will have paid too much.

Our entire suite of modules are included in LabLite SQL LIMS. There is no additional cost.

Do you need a full time LIMS administrator with LabLite?

LabLite was designed by lab professionals for ease of use and stability using industry standard Microsoft SQL Server as a back end and MS Office applications to enhance its front end. The interface is familiar and any support necessary can easily be performed by LabLite personnel remotely. You do not need a LIMS administrator

User Group Training - is it a necessity?

LabLite SQL LIMS has an intuitive interface and is easily learned. Lablite provides on site and web based training to our clients. You do not need to send your personnel to an offsite training session. New users are trained quickly and can personalize their own views of the data that they work with.

Extra work or training - what's the catch?

In addition to our commercial off the shelf (COTS) solutions, Lablite offers custom development and programming as needed.

LabLite is both fair and reasonable if extra work is necessary or requested to tailor functionality to meet your specific needs.

The bottom line is that per diem rates will impact you as the LIMS purchaser.

Advanced Features

LabLite SQL LIMS ships with several advanced features that are automatically included with your implementation.
