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

The company demonstrated its next-generation LIMS-on-Demand solution at Thermo Scientific booth 2757 during Pittcon 2010, held February 28 - March 5, in Orlando.

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 flexible alternative to conventional LIMS so organizations can adapt technology as needs change. For the cost of a monthly subscription fee, a laboratory can securely access a fully-functional, validated solution through a standard Web browser.

The intuitive Web interface enables connectivity with a variety of internal instruments and systems as well as external facilities, partners and regulatory agencies. LIMS-on-Demand offers flexibility and ease-of-use, helping organizations replace 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 access to up-to-the-minute data and information that impacts every phase of laboratory processes.

“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,” said Paula Hollywood, senior analyst process automation at ARC Advisory Group. “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.”

“LIMS-on-Demand delivers the benefits of an on-premise LIMS at a lower cost and with very little implementation time,”said Dave Champagne, vice president and general manager of Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Informatics business. “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.”
