LASTRADA Laboratory Software -
Where quality itself is the conception!

Laboratory Software for Concrete and Asphalt or Aggregate and Soil Testing Quality is our clients' daily business. LASTRADA improves the quality, efficiency and productivity of the laboratory.

LASTRADA has been serving the construction materials and geotechnical industry since 1996. Today, it is the leading Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) in the construction materials industry.

LASTRADA has been developed in close co-operation with our customers. It integrates construction materials testing, mix design, quality management and all laboratory processes into one system.

Materials and Geotechnical Laboratories

Independent test houses and laboratory networks of all sizes use LASTRADA as a fully featured LIMS: from the preparation of offers to invoicing and project analysis, including efficient testing and lab management.
