Autoscribe LIMS Configured And Implemented Within 3 Months
News Apr 25, 2014
A new case study has been published by Autoscribe (UK), which highlights how its Matrix Gemini Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) was configured and implemented in just 3 months at global paper supplier, Glatfelter. Glatfelter’s corporate analytical services group offers a wide range of analytical capabilities with some 15 instruments available. The laboratory performs multiple functions ranging from product development and process improvements to environmental analyses.
With the laboratory conducting around 25,000 analyses per year, the major challenge for the LIMS was to manage the workflow for an efficient use of the facilities and a fast turn round of results. The case study describes how Matrix Gemini was introduced to replace a system that had been developed internally using Microsoft Access™. Matrix Gemini was configured to handle a complex system of many samples received daily from many locations which often required multiple tests. The result is that analysts can now visualize the workflow for every request and can easily follow a sample’s path through the laboratory.
John Boother, Autoscribe’s founder and CEO, commented: “This case study illustrates perfectly how with the correct planning, accurate definition of requirements and close collaboration between the two parties, a complex installation can be expedited in a very short space of time. Key to the success of the project was the utilization of Matrix Gemini’s extensive configuration tools, and the real-time feedback that resulted from the very close working relationship between laboratory staff at Glatfelter and the software team at Autoscribe.”
It's easy to take a lot for granted. Scientists do this when they study stress, the force per unit area on an object. Scientists handle stress mathematically by assuming it to have symmetry, but new supercomputer simulations show that at the atomic level, material stress doesn't behave symmetrically. The findings could help scientists design new materials such as glass or metal that doesn't ice up.READ MORE
In late 2017 DeepMind introduced AlphaZero, a single system that taught itself from scratch how to master the games of chess, shogi (Japanese chess), and Go, beating a world-champion program in each case. Today, they announce the evalutation of AlphaZero, published in the journal Science, that confirms and updates those preliminary results.
