SoftLinx™ is a powerful multitasking, dynamic scheduling software package for planning and running automated laboratory workcells. It is designed control all the instruments in an automated workcell. It makes the programming and operation of lab automation easy for lab personnel, yet flexible enough for custom modification by programmers.
Intuitive: The user interface includes a drag and drop flow chart-like interface which makes it easy to build a protocol that takes maximum advantage of your instrument configuration. Individual steps can be added, customized or removed, and series of independent or interdependent methods can be defined. Programming control can be added to introduce conditions to the flow of the protocol, and user defined methods can be added through a seamless interface to Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) scripting.
Flexible: SoftLinx turns any large, integrated system into a combination of small virtual workcells, incorporating only the instrumentation that the user needs! SoftLinx’s large library of optional software interfaces for controlling third-party instruments are written in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) script. Users can even write their own, custom interfaces. SoftLinx allows users to start and run additional methods, even while others are already running, even using the same instruments, whether pre-planned or not!
