Communicate – Measure – Organize
Labber offers a complete, yet easy to use, solution for instrument control and lab automation. Our software is suitable for any research team who wishes to bring their experimental potential to its absolute maximum. We believe that the time of a successful reseracher should not be invested writing many lines of code before being able to run an experiment in the lab. Instead, it should be spent on advancing science!
The Instrument Server handles communication with all the instruments and equipment present in the experimental laboratory setup.
Labber supports communication over GPIB, serial, USB, TCP/IP, or any other interface that is implemented by the VISA standard.
See our GitHub repository for a complete list of available instrument drivers. On top of the instrument drivers, there are also a set of virtual drivers which are used to implement additional functionality needed for different experiments.
The Measurement setup dialog defines the sequence of values to set or measure during an experiment.
Sequences can have arbitrary number of dimensions and are easily created using drag-and-drop.
Add comments, tags, and users for easy tracking of experiments in your team, making it ideal for efficient collaborations.
The Log Browser visualizes the contents of the log database. In addition to the date of a measurement, you can organize your log files using tags such as project name, chip number, or user.
The log list shows a list of logs matching the selected tags. Quick view shows data and settings for the currently selected log.
Logs can be starred, to highlight important data. Double-clicking an individual log brings up the Log Viewer.
Do I need a license for every computer that will run Labber?
Yes, you need a valid license for each computer that is running the Instrument Server or the Measurement program. There are discounts available for acquiring multiple licenses.
Do I need a license to use the Log Browser?
No, you only need a valid license for running the Instrument Server and the Measurement program. The Log Browser can be used without a license, meaning that you will always be able to access your data, even after a license has expired.
Can I re-use the same license if I replace an older computer with a new one?
Yes, but first you need to deactivate the license on the old computer. This is done by clicking the Deactivate-button in the “License registration”-dialog in the Instrument Server.
I’m having difficulties installing/running Labber on my computer
