What is MLAB?
MLAB is a proprietary software for microbiology laboratory
technician in hospital to keep tracking lab's workloads and data
in local database. The original version was born in 1983 and
FoxproX on DOS. It is still uses since then in
many hospitals, with a small team of programmers supporting and
they are keep improving it.
The down side are it needs to run in a virtual machine to operate DOS which consumes more resources than it should be, and the difficulty to maintain DOS application in the current day is increasing by time, and with scarcity of reference documentations.

MLAB X is a new improved version of original MLAB, redesigned
from the ground up to run on x64 architecture with modern
standards such as IPC (inter-process communication) like

borderline in software.
MLAB X is still an edge computing system like original MLAB.
