Hyperion Succesfully Completes Laboratory Infrastructure Project for Hellenic Petroleum
News Nov 21, 2012
Hyperion and the Hellenic Petroleum Group have announced the successful completion of a major upgrade and extension project for the Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) at the three Greek petroleum refineries of the Group. The 10-month long project, also provided the migration of the three systems to a single unified environment with common work processes, data and reporting infrastructure, and was implemented on the Thermo Scientific SampleManager LIMS software platform from Thermo Fisher Scientific, a US-based corporation and Hyperion’s strategic partner in Greece, Cyprus, Russia and Saudi Arabia.
Hyperion Systems Engineering announces the successful completion of an important Laboratory Infrastructure project for the Hellenic Petroleum S.A Group.
Specifically the project, which required 10 months from kick-off to completion, involved the expansion and upgrading of the laboratory information management systems (LIMS) for the three refineries of the company in Greece (Elefsina, Aspropyrgos and Thessaloniki), and the migration of these systems in one integrated environment with shared data infrastructure, work processes and reports.
The project was delivered on the Thermo Scientific SampleManager LIMS software platform from Thermo Fisher Scientific. Thermo Fisher are a leader in products and equipment supporting laboratory operations as well as the global market leader in LIMS technologies and laboratory informatics. Hyperion is a strategic partner of Thermo Fisher Scientific in Greece/Cyprus, Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia.
Dr. Anastasios Danas, Group IT Director of Hellenic Petroleum stated: “ In such difficult times for the global and particularly the Greek economy, with the implementation of projects like this one, our Group emphasizes our commitment to continue looking forward towards growth and development. Hyperion has proved to be a trusted and dedicated partner with experienced engineers who identified all peculiarities or specific issues requiring resolution, and managed to successfully deliver the project on time.”
Dr. Symeon Kassianides, Chairman and CEO of Hyperion stated: “Utilising the experience and knowhow which our engineers have gained over 20 years of Hyperion's worldwide project activity, for the success of companies in our own region is particularly gratifying. It is a true pleasure for us to work with Hellenic Petroleum and we look forward to a continued, stronger and closer cooperation going forward.”
Algorithm Speeds Up Medical Image Analysis 1000 TimesNews
Medical image registration is a common technique that involves overlaying two images, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, to compare and analyze anatomical differences in great detail. Researchers have described a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.
Antarctic Worm and Machine Learning Help Identify Cerebral Palsy EarlierNews
A research team has released a study in the peer-reviewed journal BMC Bioinformatics showing that DNA methylation patterns in circulating blood cells can be used to help identify spastic cerebral palsy (CP) patients. The technique which makes use of machine learning, data science and even analysis of Antarctic worms, raises hopes for earlier targeted CP therapies.
Towards Personalized Medicine: One Type of Data is Not EnoughNews
To understand the biology of diseased organs researchers use different types of molecular data. One of the biggest computational challenges at the moment is integrating these multiple data types. A new computational method jointly analyses different types of molecular data and disentangles the sources of disease variability to guide personalized treatment.READ MORE
