KeyLAB Upgrade Improves Data Logger Support, Test Management and Calibration

Please note that the following news item is an archived article. Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

Keynetix are pleased to announce the imminent release of a new KeyLAB Build which includes many new features requested by users.

KeyLAB build 2.30, which is being released less than 6 months since the last upgrade, includes major improvements to the data importing capability, user signatures, calibration data referencing, main testing ribbon and test scheduling options.

Improvements to the instrument data importing has been requested by many users. This release of KeyLAB opens up the opportunity for either instrument manufactures to write their own KeyLAB files, or for the user to use Keynetix’s own expanded conversion application to convert data from GDS, GeoComp, Humboldt, Impact, VJ Tech or Wykeham Farrance and import it directly into the test worksheet.

Following feedback from the last Keynetix User Group Meeting, this release of KeyLAB includes the addition of an Expected Start Date field for each test.  Combined with the additional fields for test duration and the lab’s daily capacity, allows the lab manager to make even more use of the KeyLAB management Reports Feedback Tool to identify bottle necks in the coming work load.

To reduce the number of clicks to complete the test entry, the Test Ribbon has been redesigned and includes the ability to change the status and save the test result with a single click, import test results and set the operator of the test.


Checkers and Approvers can now add their signatures and names automatically to each report generated from KeyLAB and the schedule view now includes an option to hide samples not included in the schedule.

Finally, the calibration options have been streamlined to allow the faster inclusion of calibration curves within test worksheets.

The new version of KeyLAB will be available next week to any users with a valid maintenance agreement or subscription and can be download from the new Keynetix Assist website.

All new features will be demonstrated in a webinar next Friday – All users can register for this webinar on our webinars page
