NSF International implements Thermo Scientific Watson LIMS to support bioanalytical testing for both clinical and non-clinical research studies at Bristol, CT laboratory.

NSF International has expanded the use of Thermo Scientific™ Watson LIMS,™ the industry’s leading bioanalytical LIMS (laboratory information management system), to its laboratory in Bristol, Connecticut.

NSF International’s Health Sciences division is one of the largest international contract research organizations (CRO), with a network of laboratories throughout North America, Europe, Latin America, and Asia.

NSF International’s Bristol laboratory has upgraded its informatics platform by standardizing on Watson LIMS to enhance reporting, improve efficiency and ensure data accuracy for its bioanalytical method development and validation services, enabling them to simplify compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Good Laboratory Practices (GLP).

Thermo Scientific Watson LIMS is a leading bioanalytical laboratory information management system that is relied upon by 19 of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies and CROs worldwide. It brings critical time and cost savings to pharmaceutical companies and CROs involved in drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic (DMPK) studies for drug discovery and development by reducing validation time and improving overall efficiency. Standardizing on Thermo Scientific Watson LIMS ensures secure data transmissions, regulatory compliance, reliable audit trails and improved time-to-market.

“NSF International’s Health Sciences division has built a reputation for delivering technical expertise and consultancy across the full range of GMP and GLP analytical solutions,” said James R. Scull, Ph.D., Bristol Laboratory General Manager, NSF Health Sciences. “As a contract service provider to pharma, biotech and medical device customers, NSF has state-of-the-art laboratory management systems in all our laboratories worldwide.”

“Our Bristol laboratory needed an informatics platform that combined proven industry-specific performance with compatibility for reporting to FDA, DEA, and other regulatory agencies,” Scull added. “By standardizing on Watson LIMS at our Bristol lab, we now have an automated method for sample management and greatly enhanced method validation, sample analysis and data management efficiencies with the rest of our labs worldwide.”

With Watson LIMS, NSF International’s Bristol lab can join the rest of NSF’s labs in generating analytical data more quickly and transfering that data to clients securely. “Because our data transfer is automated, Watson LIMS helps us ensure regulatory compliance and adds greater value to the high quality services we provide to our clients,” added Dr. Scull.

“We’re thrilled to be working with NSF International, a company with a global presence across major markets,” said Kim Shah, director of marketing and new business development for the Informatics business at Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Watson LIMS has an international footprint with leading pharmaceutical companies and contract laboratories. As NSF International’s business grows, Watson will be able to adapt to the company’s constantly evolving needs.”
