Over 40 years of Excellence

For over 40 years, OMNI-Lab has been one of the most powerful Laboratory Information Systems (LIS) on the market. First known as Cortex, and created by Barrett Labs/3 Net Systems (California, USA) in 1983, the LIS has been distributed in Quebec since 1987.

In 1994, we bought the intellectual property rights to the LIS and performed a complete reengineering of the software to integrate Windows technology. As pioneers in the field and with the collaboration of healthcare experts, we developed a range of highly advanced yet accessible solutions and functionalities.

In 1997, a key partnership in the public sector significantly promoted the continuous improvement of our products and services. In 2000, our LIS entered the private sector by computerizing a laboratory acquired by Dynacare, the largest lab group in Canada. That same year, OMNI-Lab was adapted for veterinary laboratories, especially those later purchased by IDEXX Canada, a giant in the Canadian veterinary sector.

In 2002, Omnitech Labs won a call for tenders from the Ministry of Health and Social Services for the computerization of laboratories in seven regions of Quebec. Then in 2004, a major contract with Dynacare, coupled with a partnership, led us to a complete review of the order management system. This reengineering positioned our company as a world leader in the field.

In 2006, OMNI-Lab again experienced modifications for the veterinary sector, this time for the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Université de Montréal. And in 2008, IDEXX Canada entrusted us with OMNI-Lab's implementation in its other Canadian reference laboratories.

In the last 15 years we have added an impressive number of new features. These include:

  • Supporting all types of secure configurations, including Individual, Multi-Lab and Multi-Establishment options
  • Our INTERLAB module (allowing transparent electronic exchanges)
  • Database Synchronization capabilities
  • Real-time surveillance of operating statuses via our Central System Monitoring Console
  • A Web Results module for access to patient results
  • Our Specimen Management and Tracking application
  • and integration with state-of-the-art solutions such as:
    • Instrument Manager by Data Innovations (integrated)
    • Unity Real Time by Bio-Rad (optional complement)
    • Omni-Assistant, a Quality, Compliance and Risk Management solution by Omnitech Innovations (optional)

For more than 40 years, our experienced and fully dedicated laboratory team has focused all its efforts in the development and outreach of the LIS, without neglecting client services.

All this, combined with OMNI-Lab’s reliability and ease of use, contributes to lab productivity. We are very proud to offer our LIS to large and small laboratories of the health sector, whether at home or abroad.
