Full Description


OpenLabFramework (OLF) is a groovy & grails based open-source laboratory information management system (LIMS)
intended for advanced sample management in small to mid-sized laboratories. It has been developed with focus
on the management of vector clone and genetically engineered cell lines. It can, however, be adapted to cover
other biomaterials. Thanks to a modular structure and the use of grails, new functionality can be added with
little developmental effort. Features currently included are among others:

  • Sample management of genes, gene variants, vector clones, and genetically engineered cell-lines,
  • together with information about medium composition, antibiotics and other cell culture conditions.
  • Physical sample tracking with QR barcodes and direct printing of labels using DYMO label printers.
  • Document management where arbitrary files can be uploaded and linked to samples in the database
  • Dynamic web-interface with heavy use of java-script and Ajax with the goal of being more responsive,
    intuitive, and interactive.

For more information please have a look at the github WIKI where you can find more information for users,
administrators, and software developers:

Important note: The latest version of OpenLabFramework was only tested on grails 2.5.x. For grails < 2.3.x use OLF v.1.3.2. Hint: Use sdkman if you need to conveniently install and use several grails versions in parallel.

Browser compatibility: OLF should work on all modern browsers that support javascript.
