Waters and LabVantage Partnership Targets Laboratory Informatics Integration
News Mar 06, 2009
Waters Corporation and LabVantage Solutions, Inc. have jointly announced a strategic partnership to integrate laboratory software for efficiency and effectiveness at laboratory dependent organizations.
Collaborating with existing common customers, Waters® and LabVantage® have already successfully integrated LabVantage's SAPPHIRE™ Laboratory Information Management Suite (LIMS) with Waters NuGenesis® Scientific Data Management System (SDMS™) and Empower® 2 chromatography data software (CDS) solutions.
Early results of the relationship have already seen a global pharmaceutical manufacturing organization simplify its laboratory data platforms from 31 site-specific systems to a single integrated, enterprise configuration comprising only two vendor's solutions worldwide: Waters and LabVantage. The intended long-term impact is to eliminate infrastructure silos, harmonize global variations, and maximize scientific data and experience within the organization to increase overall quality of work.
Another pharmaceutical company completely transformed its lab notebooks and lab-based information management processes to an electronic system by closely integrating NuGenesis SDMS and SAPPHIRE LIMS. This combined solution provides automation and workflow integration that paper systems simply can't provide. This company is now realizing all of the benefits of going paperless, such as reducing costs associated with managing labor and paper forms, and ensuring the quality and consistency of results with improved access to data.
