A new LIMS/CDS (laboratory information management system/chromatography data system) has resulted from a partnership between Thermo Electron Corp . and Orbis Information Systems. Thermo now offers SampleManager-Millennium, a new interface for its flagship SampleManager LIMS and the Millennium or Empower Chromatography Data Systems from Waters Corp. The solution facilitates electronic data flow and integration between the two products, supporting compliance in regulated environments.
Benefits of SampleManager-Millennium include:
Facilitates automatic download of instrument run data (sample sets) from the LIMS to CDS prior to an instrument run, assuring data integrity and eliminating the need for error-prone manual transcription of data;
Uploads analytical results for each sample to LIMS after the instrument run;
Configurable level of automation or manual intervention, allowing site policies and standard operating procedures to be implemented without the need to write custom code; and
Streamlined training resulting from increased process automation.
Developed specifically for the enterprise, SampleManager is an off-the-shelf integration product that can be implemented to support global or local lab deployments, is scalable for a large user base, and is available in multiple languages. SampleManager also can accommodate various workflows, lab types, and user communities that exist across the enterprise.
