07/31/2013 - Thermo Fisher Scientific Introduces New Enhancements to Industry-Leading Clinical LIMS

For researchers and technicians in clinical laboratories, especially those that serve the emerging fields of translational and personalized medicine, Thermo Scientific Clinical LIMS (laboratory information management system) software is designed to combine the sample-centric functionality of a LIMS with the patient-centric functionality inherent in a traditional LIS.

07/31/2013 - LIMS 24/7 and Ayrris: Big-Data Lab Management for Production-Scale NGS

RURO and Appistry are please to announce partnership to deliver integrated solutions for Big-Data Lab Management for Production-Scale NGS. Automation is a fact of life for modern labs. But effectively managing the increasingly ubiquitous handoffs between humans, instruments, and computers requires ways to expedite and support both the physical work performed in the lab and the associated digital tasks performed by a lab’s computational workers. This is particularly important for labs seeking to provide results and diagnostic insights from data-intensive techniques such as NGS.
