Abbott acquires Omnilab, expands lab offerings

July 29, 2015

Abbott announces that it has acquired Omnilab, a provider of software for clinical diagnostics and blood transfusion laboratories. Omnilab’s software solutions act as middleware, connecting laboratory information systems (LIS) to analyzers, automation systems, point-of-care, or other diagnostic devices within the laboratory.

Designed by laboratory experts to meet the unique needs of the lab this middleware suite, Omnilab LabOnline IT,  includes applications with a range of features, such as test ordering and result management, sample management, quality control, workflow management, and clinical decision support. These IT solutions play an increasingly important role in helping laboratories standardize processes and improve decision making, interfacing with thousands of instruments and different LIS systems.

Middleware solutions are a critical component of Abbott’s total laboratory solution for customers and were previously available to Abbott customers through a partnership agreement, primarily in Europe, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand. Abbott will expand availability of the Omnilab LabOnline IT to additional markets globally.
