You too must be hurtling through the Xmas traffic towards year end. I'll be short, herewith a brief update of our activities on the local LIMS front and some more

Bika Wine LIMS roll out - intelligent laboratory information management

1st Bika wine lab installation is nearing completion to go into on-site acceptance testing Tuesday 14 December at Breëriviervallei Botteleringskoöperasie in Worcester. Rather exciting, roll on vintage 2005!

Upon this fresh design iteration, Bika now is a complete application with all of the features promised by our on-line demonstration accomplished, added accreditation friendliness and hosted on affordable connections. Book your demonstration now!

We migrated her onto the Plone content management platform, open source and one of the most successful projects in the history of Zope. Resulting in an elegantly simple user interface, in your browser of choice, and with the benefit of being integrated in a proven framework where existing solutions can be interfaced and lab information be gathered centrally

Bika Application Service Provision

Apart from the Bika server edition going into production now, most functionality and features are, as always, also available in the Bika ASP solution, affordably based on a monthly subscription, nominal fee per sample and a once off setup fee

Expanding capacity

Joris Goudriaan has joined us as Marketing and Sales Manager to neatly boost our quiver of skills. Myself and Inus now have more capacity for R&D and customer support. Joris can be reached at

Having closely monitored developments through 2004, we are beginning to witness the swell of open source support evident in other parts for a while already. Our strategic partners and Bika coders are building capacity ahead of demand

New year resolutions

For brochures for download detailing the Bika Server and ASP products, our business services and an on-line installation of the new system

We wish you a Happy Happy 2005. Peace today

Plone is built using Zope, an object oriented application server. The language that drives Zope and Plone is Python - the agile language preferred by Google, NASA, Industrial Light and Magic and many others. Why? Because Python offers unprecedented programmer productivity
