Automated Validation Framework and Testing Kit


Software validation

The time and resources required to validate a new LIMS, or even implement an upgrade is a barrier for many organizations. With a tool that automates the process of running test scripts, go-lives of new software implementation will be faster and the execution of regression tests for software upgrades will be simplified. In addition, with an automated tool, the likelihood of human error during manual execution of test scripts would be significantly reduced. 


STARLIMS is now utilizing the Automated UI Testing Tools, TestExecute and TestComplete, by SmartBear. With the purchase of licenses from SmartBear and the STARLIMS Automated Validation Framework and Testing Kit, the time required to validate a LIMS system in-house will be reduced. If the STARLIMS Quality Manufacturing Solution QM12.1 is not being utilized as delivered out-of-the-box, the test scripts can be modified.  


What is included in the starlims automated validation framework and testing kit?

reduce execution time

Automated scripts execute faster than manual testers.


Simplify regression testing

Simplified validation of future product upgrades or changes to infrastructure/ patching.


Objective evidence & Results

Automated Test Scripts can quickly execute a list of steps, capture screenshots, log step activity (e.g. data comparisons) - failed/passed and graph results.


Develop to intended use

New framework of test objects allows existing scripts to be tailored to intended uses.



Reduce human error

Likelihood of human error is reduced significantly.
