About Logilab Scientific Data Management System (SDMS)

Logilab SDMS is a mature and proven Scientific Data Management System designed, developed, implemented and supported by Agaram Technologies, a leading software solutions provider in the area of laboratory informatics.

It has been designed mainly to

  • Capture, Catalog and Archive instrument raw data and files
  •  Metadata along with a human readable data
  • Tags data in a manner such that data can be indexed into catalog and archived for long term purposes

It is a new kind of generic enterprise class scientific data management software solution designed to capture data from any analytical instrument (i.e. PC-software-based as well as standalone non-pc-based ones with ports of TCP/IP, RS232 and analog), irrespective of type, make and manufacturer.

Instrument Data as well as metadata can be captured and archived to a secure and dedicated server which acts as a single point of truth.

Logilab SDMS is a secure file-storage system. It stores all the files in an FTP server in a secure manner and any metadata related to the files are stored in a central database server.
Logilab SDMS has been designed for integrating external systems like LIMS, ERP and Electronic Notebook (ELN) Systems. There are appropriate middleware tools available for integrating external systems through the Logilab SDMS system interface.

Data access and viewing are controlled through user rights ensuring data security. The metadata like instrument/user source, data/time, file size, checksum and user-entered tags along with the parsed and extracted data are stored in a central database repository. Full text indexing allows strong search facility and ensures the availability of required data instantaneously.

It can be easily implemented as cloud software for laboratories.

Necessity of SDMS software system for Regulated Industries

  • Regulated industries are mandated to properly store raw and metadata generated by instruments and must be in a human-readable format and be retrievable securely.
  • Data used for GMP and GLP compliance facilities must be available in a controlled and secured repository and must be able to be audited at any time by internal and external regulatory bodies
  • The data must be maintained as a single source of truth as mandated by ALCOA principles of data integrity
  • Ability of the cGMP facilities to exhibit US FDA’s 21 CFR Part 11 regulatory compliance and EU’s Eudralex Annex 11 standard compliance


A controlled secured environment:

  • Must be readily available 
  • Data must be Version controlled whenever modified
  •  True copy of the original data must be available
  • Data must be in human-readable format
  • Data must be able to be tagged with meta data
  • Data must be able to be stored, archived and retrieved on long term basis
