Best Of Both Worlds For LIMS Deployment
News Mar 30, 2016
This versatile software can be deployed either as enterprise software, or on remote servers to change the costing model. The dual web/desktop user interface provides the level of flexibility needed to accommodate most requirements.
The well-established enterprise deployment model sees the software installed on the customer’s own server, for a one-off perpetual licence fee with data also held on the customer’s server(s), usually behind a corporate-wide firewall for maximum data security. This is particularly popular in highly data-sensitive industries such as medical diagnostics and pharmaceuticals, where the potential cost of data loss would be immeasurable.
For customers who prefer to spread the purchase costs using an operational budget rather than the one-off fee capital expenditure, there has been a lot of interest in Cloud-based LIMS, with data also being stored on Cloud-based servers. To meet this requirement, Autoscribe can arrange for Matrix Gemini to be hosted on tried and tested specialist third party servers, typically spreading the cost with a quarterly on-going licence fee.
Autoscribe Informatics Managing Director, John Boother, commented: “The latter model has the benefit of reducing the upfront costs for the software, and if data is also stored in the Cloud, there are no in-house LIMS-related costs associated with IT infrastructure and support. Crucially, however, this model still allows the user access to the full capabilities of Matrix Gemini, with its built in configuration tools that allow the system to be structured to meet the exact customer requirement from single user to multi-site global organisations. While the concept of Cloud-based LIMS and Software as a Service is comparatively new, we have had customers happily using this model for around seven years.”
MIT researchers have developed a cryptographic system that could help neural networks identify promising drug candidates in massive pharmacological datasets, while keeping the data private. Secure computation done at such a massive scale could enable broad pooling of sensitive pharmacological data for predictive drug discovery.
The architecture of each person’s brain is unique, and differences may influence how quickly people can complete various cognitive tasks.o learn more, scientists are developing a new tool — computational models of the brain — to simulate how the structure of the brain may impact brain activity and, ultimately, human behavior.READ MORE
