Core Informatics Joins the World Leader in Serving Science
Every year at Pittcon, there is buzz and excitement around the latest scientific innovations that are featured on the show floor. Pittcon 2017 was no exception, but this year the major focus wasn’t on the floor, it was in the cloud. At the Thermo Fisher Scientific Pittcon press conference, the company announced the acquisition of Core Informatics and described the importance of cloud technology to the scientific community.
Core’s Platform for Science (PFS) is a cloud-based informatics platform, providing the underlying data management infrastructure for lab workflows, allowing end-to-end sample and specimen tracking across experiments, assays, and processes. Core Informatics’ LIMS, ELN, and SDMS as well as its communication products, Core Connect and Core Collaboration run on the platform. PFS provides the scientific community with a flexible, cost effective and secure way to collect, store, analyze and share information. “We are thrilled to join the Thermo Fisher Scientific team to help accelerate the future of the digital lab,” said Josh Geballe, Vice President, General Manager, Core Informatics business, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “We are excited to become part of the world leader in serving science and look forward to the additional benefits this will bring to our innovative clients and amazing team.”
