Agri-Labs Information Systems (ALIS) smoothly
manages all types of raw laboratory data flowing out of the sample life cycle from beginning to end.
Written to run on Microsoft's 32-bit operating systems, our informatics product is not just another
collection of Excel spreadsheets used as front-ends to Access databases. Nor is our ALIS
LIMS written in a dead or dying language. Rather, ALIS is an inter-relational
database of six modules, (Soil, Water, Plant Tissue, Manure/Compost, Feeds/Forage and Air), based upon
matrices of the Earth's hydrologic cycle written in the robust and stable Clarion 5.5
language suitable for use in agricultural and natural resource laboratories. ALIS LIMS readily
accommodates increased sample volume.
We've kept ALIS affordable. By standardizing
the work up front in this commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution, ALIS software is easy
to learn, install, setup, implement, validate, use, upgrade and customize (to a large degree), e.g.,
benchsheets, by your own laboratory staff with your own formulas and parameters entered into text boxes
before your samples are ever added. Much of the work is easily done via forms with check and text boxes,
drop down selections, radio buttons, drag and drop browse windows and tutorials.
If you do not wish to use the many pre-made report styles that
come with the ALIS package, you may opt to either buy the optional Clarion Report Writer and/or ODBC
Driver to create your own or you can have Desert Oasis Software Company do it for a reasonable
data cascades throughout the system after initial data entry to
eliminate typographical errors. ALIS import and export routines are
used to incorporate historical records, device readings, instrument
results and accounting information into and out of the LIMS. For
time-sensitive sample results, ALIS can be setup to transmit short
messaging service (SMS) notification to your clients' wireless devices.
Also now available is the ALIS Internet Interface. Contact us for more
