LabSafe by OlexSys

Laboratory Management Software with safety and compliance at heart


The new LabSafe laboratory management software from OlexSys has safety at heart.

Designed specifically for institution-wide use within research laboratories, LabSafe is a web-based software system which provides for the electronic control, documentation and management of materials hazardous to health.

Developed initially for the Chemistry Department at Durham University, LabSafe has been designed to maintain the chemical materials inventory and required safety documentation, in combination with a controlled electronic request and authorisation process for the ordering of new materials.
