H.E.L Group introduces labCONSOL laboratory automation software


The software introduces a new user interface and provides a scalable platform for future development

H.E.L Group has announced the release of its laboratory automation software labCONSOL, designed to support customers in the automation and coordination of laboratory equipment.

Incorporating H.E.L’s WinISO software engine, labCONSOL combines rapid data capture modes, a real-time data display engine, and automated monitoring of experiment completion and failure states. These features are designed to enable accurate tracking of how an experiment is proceeding, focusing on critical aspects and avoiding unnecessary repeated lab work.

The software has been developed from user input and customer insight. For existing H.E.L product users, the company guarantees a quick transition with minimal retraining.

The company will continue to apply its software development expertise to a pipeline of future enhancements and upgrades to support its instrument offering. H.E.L systems will shortly start shipping with labCONSOL installed, and for the majority of existing users, the software will be available as part of ongoing service plans. All customers with active service cover plans will receive regular, automatic labCONSOL updates that will continuously upgrade the software’s capabilities and enrich the user experience.

Mark Appleton, Director of Product Development at H.E.L Group said: “We are delighted to deliver labCONSOL to our users as we believe it represents a step-change in laboratory automation. In developing labCONSOL, we have modernised the codebase and created an environment with a very new look and feel. We have built a platform where functionality can be added easily and in a very modular fashion, thus ensuring regular and timely future updates.”
