Because PLA 3.0 is a very versatile platform, you can use it in a lot of different scenarios. Some of them include bioassay software from other sources or programs such as a laboratory information management system. For those users, we developed modules for importing and exporting documents from / to other programs.
In contrast to Data Acquisition Modules, you would use Document Import Modules to generate fully specified documents of a specific type. Document Import Modules are useful when an external format contains every information required to create a specific document. For example, if a third party program deals with biological assays, you can set up a Document Import Module in a way that it delivers a completely specified Quantitative Response Assay. Here, the Document Import Module converts all settings and creates the appropriate PLA 3.0 document.
Document Import Modules are licensed per external file format and target document type. For example, some users relied on CombiStats™ for their bioassay analysis. If you are one of them and would like to use PLA from now on, you can get our CombiStats Import Module and import your CombiStats documents into PLA 3.0.
