Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches LIMS-on-Demand

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched its software-as-a-service (SaaS), laboratory information management system. LIMS-on-Demand allows organisations of varying types and sizes to leverage all the benefits of LIMS solution without the time and cost typically associated with on-premise software installation.

LIMS-on-Demand can reduce the capital investment associated with traditional LIMS implementation and validation by eliminating the need for extensive software testing and installation. On-demand access provides a more flexible alternative to conventional LIMS so organisations can more easily and cost-effectively adapt technology as needs change.

Thermo Fisher Scientific claimed that LIMS-on-Demand offers flexibility and ease-of-use, helping organisations replace inefficient, error-prone manual processes with an automated data management solution. Customers can create workflows, map sample lifecycles and generate automatic updates while providing users with rapid access to up-to-the-minute data and information that impacts every phase of laboratory processes.

Paula Hollywood, senior analyst process automation at ARC Advisory Group, said: “The cost of acquiring a LIMS in the traditional license delivery model is prohibitive for many small and medium-sized laboratories, effectively putting it out of reach. Because of the high costs, ranging between $100,000 and $750,000, many organizations opt for home-grown systems, but the cumulative costs, including staff and capital equipment, often make these systems more expensive to develop, maintain and validate.”

Dave Champagne, vice president and general manager of informatics business at Thermo Fisher Scientific, said: “LIMS-on-Demand delivers the benefits of an on-premise LIMS at a lower cost and with very little implementation time. With built-in workflows, the ability to capture, store and analyze lab data, monitor resources and integrate with instrumentation, we are enabling more laboratories around the world to experience the competitive advantages of LIMS.”
