New Thermo Scientific SampleManager LIMS can support native mobile application

One of world’s most widely deployed LIMS continues to add functionality that modern labs require

Pharmaceutical QA/QC, oil and gas, chemical, water and environmental, food safety and contract laboratories can now offer always-on mobile connectivity to their Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) software, providing access to data and insights for decision-making wherever and whenever they need it.

The newest version of Thermo Scientific SampleManager LIMS, which is on display at Analytica 2016 (Messe München, booth 101, hall B1) in Munich, Germany, now supports a native mobile application that is deployable on most iOS, Android and Windows tablets. Users can easily configure the application through the SampleManager desktop or Web-based client, adding modules that enable actions such as receiving or moving samples, results entry and record search and retrieval, all from the mobile device.

"We’re empowering our customers to do something they’ve been unable to do until now – work remotely using an interface that mirrors how they already work in their lab," said Christoph Nickel, senior director global marketing for Informatics and Chromatography Software, Thermo Fisher. "We know that lab workflows are unique, and that’s why we designed our mobile capability to work as a true extension of the LIMS our customers have worked so hard to configure."

The added mobile functionality in SampleManager LIMS makes one of the world’s most widely deployed LIMS even more versatile for labs and their enterprise IT staffs. The solution also offers user access through a native Web client, architected for extensibility to accommodate changes in the lab and make it easier to roll out new functionality as the platform evolves. This significantly reduces burden on IT staff and gives greater control to end-users.

"Our customers want their LIMS to fit how they work," added Nickel. "Because we’re native web, everything the customer has worked hard to configure is always there – and now that commitment extends to mobile devices as well."

In addition to the new mobile capabilities, SampleManager LIMS also features enhanced navigation. This provides LIMS users a tailored user experience that can range from a full explorer view to standard favorite, recent, and breadcrumb navigation.

Part of a portfolio of enterprise-level software solutions that are advancing science, SampleManager LIMS is an integrated informatics solution delivering greater end-to-end functionality for method execution and laboratory and data management. It also fully integrates with the Thermo Scientific Dionex Chromeleon Chromatography Data System (CDS), providing a seamless CDS link within the LIMS to streamline lab process and eliminate manual steps related to sample testing and results capture and analysis.

The integration of SampleManager LIMS with Chromeleon CDS gives users access to all LC, GC, IC and MS data within the same platform and user environment, simplifying training of personnel and reducing operating costs. With LIMS, SDMS and LES as well as CDS functionality built onto one comprehensive platform, laboratories no longer need to purchase, implement, validate and support software packages from multiple vendors. Instead, businesses can invest the cost savings back into future innovation.
