Rural Sourcing Unveils New LIMS Accelerator™ Tool
News Mar 15, 2016
Rural Sourcing Inc. has unveiled a powerful new tool that automates LIMS configuration to help pharmaceutical labs run more accurately and efficiently. Announced during Pittcon, the world’s largest conference and exposition on laboratory science, the LIMS Accelerator eliminates manual data entry and time spent on non-value added tasks, allowing labs to focus on research and product development.
LIMS Accelerator is platform agnostic and is designed to sit on top of existing LIMS to automate configuration and help labs manage complex testing and workflows, track and analyze samples from reception to reporting and facilitate automated processes faster and with more accuracy. With the LIMS Accelerator, companies have reduced the time spent on managing samples and their data by up to 80 percent.
“We’re excited to introduce LIMS Accelerator, a dynamic new tool that automates and synchronizes processes from lab to lab for more consistent, predictable data that ultimately results in significant cost savings and efficiency gains,” said Monty Hamilton, CEO of Rural Sourcing Inc.
Other LIMS Accelerator benefits include:
Improved accuracy through automated processing and calculations
Reduced costs associated with managing standards and reagents
Streamlined processes and decision-making
Improved trending and analytical reporting capabilities
Reduction in laboratory cycle time
Enhanced control for method changes and testing procedure changes
Reduction in laboratory and manufacturing investigations
Intuitive and easy-to-use dashboard reporting
A vital success factor in LIMS configuration and customization is having context-specific knowledge of industry, regulatory and laboratory processes. With years of experience in the pharmaceutical, consumer healthcare and biotechnology industries, RSI is a technology partner that understands these unique challenges and the criticality of quality required. The RSI LIMS team is highly skilled in implementation and support.
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.
