- 1 sciCloud.net® Editions
- 2 Lab Cloud Industry Solutions
- 3 Additional Cloud Products and Services
- 4 sciCloud.net® Solutions
- 5 sciCloud.net ® Apps
The sciCloud.net® platform provides several Editions, comprised of specially selected combinations of apps to meet all of the needs of specific types of labs and organizations.
There are five editions, with multiple solutions in each, and each can be further configured to your exact needs through selection of apps, addition of plugins/add-ons, configuration of the apps, integrations and additional custom services.
SciCloud.net® Community includes a wide range of apps designed to provide you with a complete business solution for your office, lab, agency, institution, project or other scientific facility. Even if you have zero budget, you can have all the apps you need to handle all of your processes, from CRM to finances, document management, project management and more, with literally thousands of additional plugins and add-ons available.
SciCloud.net® Community is automatically provided to all sciCloud.net ® members (which includes all LabLynx clients), and is included in all other sciCloud.net® suites and editions, and also offers a limitless supply of additional apps, each with their own continuously dynamic set of plugins and add-ons to meet all kinds of needs. Community support is included, with additional support available, and of course all of the many resources and benefits of sciCloud.net®.
The great breadth of offerings available in sciCloud.net® Community means that no matter who you are or what you do, it provides you with the app suite to do it better. But there is additional benefit. Along with your Community Suite that’s included in your free sciCloud.net® membership, every member gets the free ability to create their own community. The benefits of that are significant. You can make a community that represents your company or organization, with SSO (Single Sign-On) so that when employees log in they are instantly logged into any and all company apps and systems. And the same goes for customers, they can log into your community and see all the information, demos and other materials you want them to be able to access.
Your community (and you can create additional ones as well) contains all of the same functionality, resources etc. of sciCloud.net®: discussion forum, books, journals, articles, events, search, jobs, marketplace, courses – but tailored to your specific topics (you set the parameters). You can monetize your community through sponsorship and/or e-commerce if you like, vet membership and content and more. It’s YOUR community (or communities).
The collaboration apps comprise the full content of the sciCloud.net ® Community Cloud Edition. These include:
The SciCloud.net® Research Cloud Edition is designed specifically for all types of research, and as one of the professional paid subscription suites, includes all of the features of the SciCloud.net® Community Cloud edition, plus the ELab Research LIMS and an ELN, with various selected additional apps according to your specific research needs.

Additional Cloud Products and Services
SciCloud.net®‘s Developer Cloud provides you with a free development toolkit to help you create plugins, add-ons and apps themselves for sale or distribution in the SciCloud.net® Community. You can work singly or collaboratively, and use other community members as requirements generators, iteration/beta testers, QC, and more, as well as end users.
Check code in and out, document work/versions, etc. and write and debug code, all using SciCloud.net®‘s free cloud-hosted tools. And if you want, you can get more hosting space, create development and test environments, demo sites and more through Server Cloud. And you may also find it very useful to join sciForge.net, the central SciCloud.net® developer community, and perhaps other related communities.
You also get free use of the SciCloud.net® App Lab, where you and any collaborators can test your apps or plugins/add-ons. As a member of SciCloud.net®‘s community of lab, science, health and informatics professionals, it’s just part of the many resources and benefits available to you!
While the LabLynx LIMS and many of the other apps in the LabLynx and sciCloud.net® libraries readily share files with instruments and other systems, there are also situations where the integration required is more complex. For those we have LabVia, LabLynx’s exclusive middleware and hub hardware/software product, available through sciCloud.net® to manage your connections and data sharing.
LabVia intelligently manages multiple data communications between all kinds of devices, services, systems or other sources.
Use LabVia to connect with:
- SDMS, MES, PLM, DMS, EHR/EMRs, PMS or other Systems/Software or Databases
- LIMS or other Laboratory Information Systems
- Field Devices, Mobile, Hand-held etc.
- POC Devices
- Billing Services
- Regulatory/Reporting Agencies
- Reference or Contract Labs
LabVia is available as an option with all sciCloud.net® and LabLynx solutions.
The onsite part of the LabVia solution is the LabVia Hub. It is a hardware/software product that provides a central nexus point for all of the integrated nodes (instruments/devices, software applications etc.), intelligently managing their data. Full instructions on installation and setup are provided, and a LabLynx professional will guide you through the process. Or, if you prefer, we can come onsite and install it for you, ensuring all interfaced data points communicate properly. Many systems need only be able to provide files that your sciCloud.net® Solution can access to process and report, and/or be able to receive sample information from the LIMS. If serial connections are required, then a LabVia channel is utilized, and your hub will link up with the cloud-based software portion of LabVia to ensure perfect data routing and management.
The cloud portion of LabVia is hosted for you in our Cloud Platform (IaaS), keeping your integrations securely managed in real time. And any time you need more integrations (e.g. you buy new instruments that you’d like to interface with your system), we can add a new channel for you that is configured to transfer the data you want, in the ways you want them.
You can forget about the details and concentrate on your own work, secure in the knowledge that your interfaces will continue functioning perfectly for as long as you have them. All maintenance, support and warranty is included in your annual agreement.
If you’d like more information about LabVia or you have questions about integration of your devices, services and/or applications, contact sciCloud.net® Support, search the Marketplace for qualified services or contact LabLynx at LabLynx Contact Us, or give us a call at 770.859.1992 or toll-free at 800.585.5969.
Your apps are hosted securely and reliably on sciCloud.net ®‘s servers*. Cloud server space is automatic and free with your (also free) sciCloud.net ® membership. But if you’d like more space or your own virtual servers, you can get that too. Just contact sciCloud.net Support, search the Marketplace for qualified services or contact LabLynx at LabLynx Contact Us, or give us a call at 770.859.1992 or toll-free at 800.585.5969.
For each sciCloud.net® edition (Community, Health, Research, Lab and Government), there are editions that are pre-configured to meet specific needs. The exception is the free Community Edition, which includes a default set of apps, plus open options to add apps, plugins and add-ons, even creating a custom version of one of the other editions/solutions, as desired.
So, for example, if you are a clinical reference lab, you would choose the Health Cloud Reference Solution. A wine testing lab would select the Lab Cloud Food and Beverage solution, and so forth. Solutions are customizable to fit your requirements exactly, no matter how unique. To get the right solution for you, contact sciCloud.net Support, search the Marketplace for qualified services or contact LabLynx at LabLynx Contact Us.
