Install a licensed version of PLA 3.0

You can install a licensed version of PLA 3.0 in a variety of scenarios, depending on your license, system environment, and business model. Commonly used scenarios include deployment for a single user or in a small environment employing a Seat license and deployment in a multi-user environment or terminal server environment employing a Concurrent use license. For more details, please go to Deployment scenarios.

When installing PLA 3.0, you work with two components. The PLA 3.0 framework is always required. It provides security features employing user accounts, roles, and permissions. The PLA License System provides the applications you will use during the licensing process. For help on the steps, please consult the PLA 3.0 Installation and Licensing Guide.


Install the PLA 3.0 trial version

We offer a trial version you can install in your environment and use for 14 days free of charge. The trial version is intended for use on local systems only, with a local SQLite database. It includes all the functionality required to analyze biological assays. Note that you cannot print out generated reports.

You install the trial version in the same way as a licensed version. The PLA License System is not required as no license is involved. For help on the steps, please consult the PLA 3.0 Installation and Licensing Guide.

To continue testing after the trial period has elapsed, you have to request an extension of your trial period. For help on the steps, please consult the »How-to Guide« Extending your trial period.
