Laboratory Information System Vendors and LIS System Partners

Let's start by first sharing a bit about our LIS company. LigoLab is headquartered in Los Angeles. It's privately owned and profitable and has served pathology laboratories nationwide since 2006. 

Before starting LigoLab, Edward and Suren, two of the company’s three founders were employed at a California lab that eventually became the largest privately held lab in the state. That lab was thriving because the founders had implemented innovative technology that allowed the lab to do more with less. 

Eventually, that lab was sold off to LabCorp. The sale provided an opportunity as Edward and Suren took all the lessons they had learned and decided to start this laboratory information system company.

A noteworthy and core principle behind that decision was to start a medical LIS company that would take full responsibility for all laboratory workflow management, becoming the only solution needed to grow and thrive. 

"Ligo" means to unite in Latin, and that's what the LigoLab platform does. It connects, merges, and integrates every lab process through shared LIS software technology into one source of truth. It becomes the focal point for all lab operations. 

A Pathology Lab Management System Built for Modern Times

LigoLab’s LIS system and lab billing platform is an all-in-one medical laboratory solution built with considerable user feedback. The pathology software modernizes labs by streamlining processes, improving workflows, and eliminating human errors and lost specimens. It's intuitive, easy to learn, accessible from anywhere, and scalable.

The LigoLab platform drives business growth, reduces labor costs, and increases revenue while catering to anatomic pathology groups and clinical and molecular labs. It's designed to support a wide range of laboratories, and it's also designed to scale. It's a powerful tool that enables labs to modernize, grow, and thrive.
