Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced a laboratory information management system (LIMS) for organisations in the oil and gas, food and beverage, environmental, water, metals and mining industries.

The Samplemanager 10.0 LIMS is claimed to deliver significant time and cost savings for scientists and laboratory managers across the range of process industries.

Samplemanager 10.0 improves access to data across the enterprise; delivers key business metrics to management; facilitates compliance with ISO, GLP and other regulatory requirements; and optimises workflows and quality management.

Thermo Fisher is currently showcasing the system in Booth 2835 at Pittcon 2011, which runs until 18 March in Atlanta.

The Samplemanager LIMS provides an intuitive user interface and a logical workflow for laboratories looking to optimise their operations by standardising processes across geographies and streamlining data exchange across enterprise systems.

It is designed to integrate with existing ERP, PIMS and MES systems and with other applications and instruments in and out of the laboratory, providing one standard user interface and facilitating standardisation for global enterprises.

Users will gain greater efficiency with integrated solutions that deliver a new kind of connected productivity, regardless of the analytical challenge.

The company developed the system with key business metric (KBM) dashboard functionality that addresses the critical business and operating needs of three distinct but interrelated parts of a company’s infrastructure: laboratory personnel, IT and systems administrators and management.

For laboratory managers and users, Samplemanager includes built-in functionality, including instrument calibration, operator training records and a stock/inventory dashboard, of which are claimed to deliver improved efficiencies, compliance and resource management.

For IT and systems administration, a new Microsoft .Net development environment provides an intuitive tool kit for making system extensibility simple and delivering time and cost savings.

For management, data visualisation tools deliver the functionality necessary to integrate and connect all parts of the organisation so that management can monitor and measure performance against key business metrics; user decisions are more responsive and informed.

The need to fully integrate laboratory-generated data with existing enterprise systems requires organisations to optimise existing investments in laboratory and enterprise systems.

Management must have continuous access to all of the data necessary to make informed decisions and monitor the health of their operations.

Dave Champagne, vice-president and general manager for Thermo Fisher’s Informatics business, said: ‘Businesses want to standardise processes, reduce energy use, centralise data capture and more fully automate processes, delivering real-time information to management for more informed decision making.

‘Samplemanager 10.0 enables companies to utilise data that is generated across their organisation while making better use of resources, harmonising processes, reducing risks and improving process.

‘The ultimate benefit is that these companies are able to maintain profitability while maximising their lab and enterprise investments,’ he added.
