H.E.L Group (H.E.L), London, announced the release of its new laboratory automation software LabConsol, designed to support customers in the automation and coordination of laboratory equipment. The software, which builds on the company’s proven ‘WinISO’ technology, introduces a new and intuitive user interface, and provides a scalable platform for future development.

Incorporating the next generation of H.E.L’s WinISO software engine, LabConsol introduces new features that enable scientists to improve lab efficiency and boost productivity. Delivered within an improved user experience, the platform combines rapid data capture modes, an advanced real-time data display engine, and automated monitoring of experiment completion and failure states. In practical terms, these features enable researchers to easily and accurately track how an experiment is proceeding, focusing on the most critical aspects, ultimately avoiding unnecessary repeated lab work, which can be both costly and time-consuming.

To ensure an intuitive and flexible user experience, LabConsol has been developed from direct user input and customer insight. For existing H.E.L product users, it guarantees a quick and seamless transition with minimal retraining.

Taking a software-first approach, H.E.L will continue to apply its software development expertise to a pipeline of future enhancements and upgrades to support its instrument offering. H.E.L systems will shortly start shipping with LabConsol installed, and for the majority of existing users, the new software will be available as part of ongoing service plans. All customers with active service cover plans will receive regular, automatic LabConsol updates that will continuously upgrade the software’s capabilities and enrich the user experience.

“We are delighted to deliver LabConsol to our users as we believe it represents a step-change in laboratory automation,” says Mark Appleton, director of product development at H.E.L Group. “In developing LabConsol, we have modernized the codebase and created an environment with a very new look and feel. We have built a platform where functionality can be added easily and in a very modular fashion, thus ensuring regular and timely future updates.”
