Pros: The system follows the laboratory workflow, tracks samples, has a comprehensive audit trail, user security levels are clearly defined. The system is user-customizable and is scaleable (can work in a small standalone laboratory to huge multi-site laboratory with referrals. Referrals require minimal bandwidth typical size per referral is 1kb.

Disa*lab interfaces with all interfaceable laboratory instruments in my lab enabling electronic ordering of tests by once registration is done and automatic transmission or results eliminating typo errors and reducing TAT.

Realtime remote user support via skype or telephone from professional and friendly staff and queries are tracked through tickets on an online helpdesk.

Disa*lab has robust predefined common reports and allows for export for user to do custom

adhoc reports

Cons: The system is a licensed using the per workstation and per year license structure, i would prefer a tier system of saying 1-5, 50-100, etc

Overall: Compliance with ISO15189 leading to accreditation of the laboratory.

Improved efficiency, accountability and boosted lab staff moral

Ability to have evidence-based decision making due to easy generation of reports

Disalab has improved laboratory processes. It is now easier for us to store and retrieve data.

Pros: instruments interface(Wxinstrument): Disalab is able to interface with a lot of analyzers

Report generating module (DisaXLreports): easier to use and produces sensible reports

Dictionary (wxdict): it gives you powers as a super user to changes laboratory processes

Cons: Too many modules (programs): This means that you need to know each and every program. its functionalities and its capabilities. too many things to know.

Overall: We are able to retrieve data/ reports with no or little difficulties.

Pros: as the superuser, its very easy to customize, therefore meets clients requirements very easily, easy customization equals everything you need in a software

Cons: use of one license per one workstation in a way increases cost, if per workstation I can be able to use two programs that would be great (wxinstrument and wxDisa per workstation

I used this product for many years both on the laboratory side and the dictionary maintenance side.
