ATL to Unveil the Future of LIMS at Pittcon 2015
News Feb 18, 2015
Accelerated Technology Laboratories, Inc. (ATL) will be exhibiting in booth #2847 at Pittcon, March 9 -12, 2015, at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, LA. ATL will be showcasing TITAN®, an innovative, feature rich, web based ERP/Laboratory Information Management System with integrated Report Designer, Workflow and Artifact Designer to future-proof our clients LIMS investment.
TITAN® was created on the ATL Framework, for rapid configuration and deployment, so our clients see a rapid return on their investment. TITAN® leverages the latest technology, bringing robust, flexible tools to our client's analytical laboratories, offering them a competitive advantage.
TITAN® boasts three powerful layers, the Laboratory layer (for the management of laboratory functions from sample tracking to final disposition, facilitation of ISO 17025 Compliance, e-signatures for custom workflows, a sophisticated Corrective and Preventative Action (CAPA) feature, tools to manage the supply chain, full traceability, integration with SAS JMP, the leading statistical software package, Business Layer with asset management, invoicing, order management, financials, client surveys, and the Administration Layer for system configuration.
With TITAN® there is full support for integration with enterprise systems, such as SAP, Great Plains, JD Edwards, SCADA and many other systems. TITAN® is highly configurable and provides users the ability to tailor LIMS business rules to match their organizations' requirements, rather than having to modify the way they do business.
TITAN® was designed to support multiple global facilities, supports barcoding, RFID, leverages a powerful search function, offers dashboards, and enforces security and referential integrity. TITAN® allows users to easily extract laboratory intelligence from raw data and to display it in a user friendly manner.
ATL will also demonstrate Sample Master®, a 100 percent web-based LIMS, built on .NET framework. Sample Master® boasts a brand new look and feel, perfect for those organizations with multiple US locations or global operations, and a need to utilize mobile technology (tablets, smart phones), in the plant or in the field, wherever work takes users.
The software will leverage the modularity and user friendliness for which Sample Master® has become known, along with the secure Result Point® web portal. With Result Point®, users will have 24/7 self-service access to sample status, test results, reports, EDDs, invoices and more from any desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Users can grant access to clients as well providing them with real-time results and reporting anytime and anywhere.
Additionally, ATL will exhibit the iMobile Application for Samsung Galaxy tablet, iPads, smart phones and rugged laptops. Users of this application can view an electronic chain of custody, collection lists, enter results for samples that were previously scheduled and add new samples "on the fly". Plant, field and laboratory users will benefit from this technology in time and resource savings.
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
Researchers Move Closer to Completely Optical Artificial Neural NetworkNews
Researchers have shown that it is possible to train artificial neural networks directly on an optical chip. The significant breakthrough demonstrates that an optical circuit can perform a critical function of an electronics-based artificial neural network and could lead to less expensive, faster and more energy efficient ways to perform complex tasks such as speech or image recognition.
