Applied Biosystems and METTLER TOLEDO Introduce Solution to Simplify the Flow of Information in Life Science and Chemistry Laboratories
News Dec 19, 2007
Applied Biosystems and METTLER TOLEDO announced an integrated solution that is expected to improve the workflow and the transfer of information in laboratories for many scientific disciplines, including the life science, chemistry, food and petrochemical industries.
The companies have collaborated to create a solution through which they are providing researchers in these fields the means to exchange data between precision instruments and laboratory information management systems.
This one-of-a-kind solution integrates Applied Biosystems’ SQL*LIMS laboratory information management system (LIMS) with METTLER TOLEDO’s LabX Data Management Software. The combination creates the ability to manage data more efficiently, while saving researchers’ time and costs in day-to-day laboratory processes, when compared to using instruments that are controlled by their own software and that operate independently of any information management systems, according to both the companies.
Applied Biosystems will sell, install and maintain SQL*LIMS systems and implement the integration of LabX software.
SQL*LIMS can be used by laboratories to manage the entire laboratory workflow, including raw materials, sample tracking and data collection. LabX Data Management and Instrument control Software controls all METTLER TOLEDO precision and analytical balances as well as titration instruments and manages the data they produce.
Once the two packages are integrated, SQL*LIMS takes sample data and, using LabX Data Management Software, sends all operator instructions to the METTLER TOLEDO instrument screen as a simple user interface, so that users can operate the laboratory instruments as normal.
The software guides the operator through each step of a work list, ensuring standard operating procedures (SOPs) are followed to avoid procedural errors. It performs full data acquisition, data storage, and automated reporting and documentation for audit trails; data can be stored within the LabX database and/or the LIMS as appropriate.
"This joint solution enables Applied Biosystems to extend its global expertise in LIMS into important new markets," said Peter Boogaard, director for LIMS product management for Applied Biosystems, "We will be able to offer METTLER TOLEDO’s customers an integrated and more flexible validated solution for managing their informatics data than the series of disparate information systems which are often found in scientific laboratories using instruments and software from multiple vendors."
New Chemical Synthesis Process: Synergy of Two Catalysts in One FlaskNews
Researchers report the one-step synthesis of a ketone from an aldehyde by the combination of thiazolium N-heterocyclic carbene and palladium/bisphosphine catalysts in one flask. The two catalysts function in a synergistic manner. This study is expected to lead to new synthesis processes of precursor compounds for medications.READ MORE
