The SLIMS platform offers a complete workflow solution easily integrating with protocols and external analysis solutions.

SLIMS APIs and Plugins


The SLIMS platform provides several APIs to build custom SLIMS plugins and extend the core functionalities of the system by integrating with external equipment or for customizing complex workflows. Web-based applications with custom interfaces like portals for your external customers can be built using our Python API or the flexible Vaadin API.

  • SLIMS GATE, our main Java-based API
  • Vaadin, a Java-based highly flexible toolkit for web development
  • REST
  • Python

Sample Management


If you want to streamline the management of sample repositories and associated data, SLIMS can help you do it. With the sample management module you are able to manage the logistics of your lab.

Permissions Management


Permissions in SLIMS can be configured in all details needed by your internal organization. Access to samples and experiments can be granted to single users or group of users working on the same project.

Barcodes and Labels printers


SLIMS contains a tool to design your own labels which will contain the barcodes for your samples or any other item. Multiple features in SLIMS allows to directly scan a barcode to register a sample or to reduce the manual interaction with SLIMS. SLIMS supports:

  • Zebra Label Printers,
  • Brady Label Printers
  • PrintMate AS Cassette Printer

Data Visualization


With the dynamic results in SLIMS you can enter your measure day after day and visualize the result in a graph with a simple click. You can even choose your graph design if you prefer bar graphs over lines and many others including (lines, bars, pies, doughnuts, radars, etc).



As part of SOPs, protocols in SLIMS help to organize and define the information recorded during tasks performed in the lab.



Use macros in SLIMS to automate repetitive tasks. Combine existing basic actions as create, link and derive content, for generic data manipulation.

Custom Fields


With SLIMS you can store all your important metadata using custom fields. Custom fields can be restricted to specific sample types or to give experiment steps for example, according to your customization needs.
