Enabling MDx and Clinical Labs
LIMS for clinical testing and MDx and clinical labs
Laboratory information management systems (LIMS) provide extensive capabilities to genomics and next-generation sequencing laboratories involved in clinical testing and molecular diagnostics and can improve lab speed, quality, and productivity. LIMS software provides researchers and laboratory technicians with the reliability and flexibility that they need to perform complex analyses such as next generation sequencing, pathology, microarray, and qPCR analysis.
Coronavirus testing capabilities for any size lab
Thermo Fisher Scientific preconfigured LIMS solutions can be quickly deployed and are designed to fit the needs of any size lab. Whether you are running a few hundred samples a day or thousands, we have a solution designed to meet your needs.
Our preconfigured LIMS solutions accelerate testing by connecting end-to-end workflows from sample preparation to final result by integrating robotics, qPCR and other laboratory equipment. Users can track where samples are in the process as they seamlessly move from one step to the next. These solutions can help increase your throughput by eliminating bottlenecks, human errors, and reducing total turnaround time.
Integrate COVID-19 testing instruments with information systems
Introducing COVID-19 testing to your lab means integrating the instrumentation to your existing LIMS or LIS. Our integration capabilities can automate your sample preparation and instrumentation and move the data into other information systems. The data can be collected electronically and stored centrally, regardless of the individual output formats produced by each instrument. The system connects sample information from the collection site with plate maps from the automation equipment and instrumentation ensuring complete sample tracking.
The software integrates with preexisting laboratory software systems and equipment creating a single location for lab technicians and managers to do their work. Dashboards to schedule employee work, monitor sample queues and statuses, and manage the flow of data can reduce laboratory bottlenecks and increase efficiency.
Management of genomic data
Using a single platform to manage items such as study protocols, laboratory processes, and analytical results promotes efficiency, traceability, and visibility. All relevant metadata such as shipment information, informed consent status, study protocols, storage locations, and laboratory analyses and results are securely stored and maintained in the system, creating a complete biospecimen lifecycle and chain of custody record.
