LabLogic’s instruments, software and validation services have been providing innovative solutions for the measurement and reporting needs of drug metabolism researchers, scientists in PET laboratories and radio-chemists throughout the world for more than 30 years.

The company has an outstanding reputation for its responsiveness to customers’ needs: on a daily basis through the medium of its technical help desk, which gives immediate and expert assistance; and in the longer term through regular User Meetings, at which customers can influence future product developments.

LabLogic was founded in the UK in 1980 by John Clapham as a supplier of radio TLC and HPLC instruments and associated software to research organisations. IN/US Systems was founded in the USA a decade later by Dr Ed Rapkin to produce, sell and support the company’s β-RAM radio detector. Both founders had worked together in the 1970s and so a mutual co-operation was natural, since both companies’ focus was the needs of drug research.

IN/US produced the β-RAM radio HPLC detector for β-emitters. LabLogic developed software; firstly DEBRA, a LIMS for drug metabolism which became industry standard for ADME studies. Later, application software for radio chromatography, RaChel, running on Windows 3.0 and various generations followed. LabLogic has a long history of user group involvement which has driven continuous development. Further hardware developments for the β-RAM and its derivatives followed from IN/US, either from its own designers or manufacturing LabLogic’s designs under licence.

Applications in TLC, WBA, radio-GC and more recently PET were catered for by the two companies, and both have a commitment to excellent personal support to users. Customers include most drug research organisations, contract laboratories and leading universities spanning 46 countries.
