What’s OpreX LIMS ?

Customers’ more demanding requirements for quality extend the scope of quality management beyond the boundaries of the company to the supply chain. In addition, with the advancing globalisation of manufacturers, operations such as overseas local production and conformance with laws and regulations become more sophisticated and complicated.

In a business environment like this, it is essential to establish a company-wide quality management system to maintain and improve customer satisfaction. However, there are the following problems in the actual inspection operations.

  • Disclosure of quality data to third parties and dealing with customer inspection.
  • Quality data input and transcription errors that undermine credibility.
  • A large amount of labour is required for checks to prevent human errors.
  • A large amount of labour is required to deal with complaints as documents are not digitised.
  • It is cumbersome to search through paper inspection records.
  • Analysers are not online and data processing is not automated.

OpreX LIMS provides the inspection process workflow from the test plan/request, issuance of test results, through to delivery approval. Lab-Aid can increase operational efficiency and improve test data quality through automated data collection, automated calculation, automated specification judgment, and automated form creation


Applicable Industries

Food & Beverage, Analysis Laboratories, Pharmaceutical, Medical Equipment, Oil, Chemical, Iron & Steel and Non-Ferrous Metal

Lab-Aid provides many problem-solving functions to improve the speed and accuracy of inspection operations, guarantee reliability of test results, and increase operational efficiency.

User-friendly User Interface and One-click Operations

The easy-to-understand screen allows you to access the desired information with just one click. The layout can be configured by each user and for each task. The information you want to view can be displayed on a single screen.

Support for Various Types of Analysers

Lab-Aid is proven to be able to connect to more than 400 types of analysers regardless of the manufacturer and model. The Laboratory Automation System (LAS) saves labour and improves data reliability. Online connection to analysers enables automated data collection and dramatically reduces labour for transcribing and inputting data.

Applicable analysers: Spectrophotometer, atomic absorption photometer, ICP meter, moisture measuring instrument, electronic balance, colour-difference meter, PH meter, coulometric titration instrument, X-ray meter, sulphur analyser, etc.

Quality Record Database

Test records from raw data through to reported values are added to the database. Data can be easily searched by keyword and extracted to Excel to create forms such as reports. In addition, trend graphs can be displayed with just one click.

Standardised Operations through Workflows

Lab-Aid provides standard workflows that can be used to standardise operations by managing various inspection items and complex procedures to reduce omissions and errors in procedures and facilitate sharing of experience and knowledge among test technicians.

Interaction with Host Systems

Interaction with ERP, PMS, and MES enables the quality test results to be applied quickly to the inventory data of raw materials and products. The quick quality judgment reduces the period of raw materials waiting for tests and of products for waiting for delivery.

Benefits for Management

Operation Cost Reduction and Processing Speed Improvement

OpreX LIMS helps promote operational standardisation through workflows, thus improving the management level and data accuracy of test operations, and increasing the level of quality assurance, such as audit trail recording. In addition, the standardisation reduces the operational cycle from acceptance of a test request, execution of the test, approval of the results, through to delivery approval, as well as simplifies the progress management.


OpreX LIMS allows you to trace back to the raw data including reported values and request information and respond quickly to inquiries from customers and internal users.

Regulatory Compliance

OpreX LIMS ensures compliance with regulations such as Positive List Scheme, RoHS, Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), HACCP, and ISO, and helps improve the level of quality assurance.

Security for Inspection Data

OpreX LIMS provides a function to automatically acquire data update history and security functions such as user management using IDs and passwords to prevent data manipulation and facilitate dealing with various inspections in an appropriate manner.

Customisation Cost Reduction

Lab-Aid allows you to easily change the form formats. The screen format can also be changed just by changing the settings. You do not need to place an order for changing the report format.

Operational Benefits

Operational Standardisation

Operational standardisation is promoted by defining functions such as automated data collection, automated calculation, automated limit check, and automated reporting for various inspection items and complex test procedures in order to save labour for the test operations, increase the speed of the operational cycle, and improve operational accuracy.

Improvement of Quality Data Reliability by Removing Human Errors

OpreX LIMS provides functions such as automated analysis data collection, automated calculation, and automated limit check to eliminate the need for manual input, double checking of input data, and limit checking, thus removing human errors and improving quality data reliability.

Real-time Monitoring of Test Progress

Anyone can check the test progress and test results in real-time on the screen, which enables sharing the test progress information with departments other than the manufacturing and shipping departments, thus speeding up decision-making and finding problems.
