the LIMS system
for your environmental analysis laboratory

For over 20 years Open-Co has been producing specialized solutions for laboratories operating in the environmental sector. In addition to the usual problems of organization and optimization of laboratory flows, we have gained specific experience in vertical solutions dedicated to complex and specific sectors, such as for example the management and classification of waste , the management of sampling and analysis of atmospheric emissions and air emissions in workplaces . Our solutions are daily “tested” in the field, in ever-changing regulatory and technical scenarios. Thanks to the collaboration with new and historical customers we are able to keep them within a continuous process of innovation .

Prolab.Q and laboratory activities

We know in detail the activities and processes that are carried out daily in the laboratory.
We have created a series of modules that can support every single phase in order to automate and optimize processes.
