All About Us

Poplar Solutions is a privately held Pennsylvania LLC formed in 2010 with offices in Reading, Pennsylvania and Copenhagen, Denmark. The core team is a seasoned group of software development and compliance experts who have been on developing solutions for regulated industries such as laboratories, banks and government agencies and for more than a decade.

Poplar Solutions’ mission is simple: to improve productivity, efficiency and regulatory compliance for our customers through automated software solutions and to reduce the environmental impact of business by eliminating paper-based processes.

The result is the Labcore Framework and while it’s features and functions could be used in many industries we have chosen to focus on laboratories and deliver the very best product in that industry.

I would recommend Labcore. It’s been a huge savings for us on time and efficiencies and accuracies of what we’re doing so it makes it much better in the laboratory to have a system like this. It’s great to have a paperless laboratory system that has all the instrument data stored and then to have it linked into our LIMS so it pulls into reports is really like the best thing since sliced bread.
