Thermo Scientific Launches New Automation Control and Scheduling Software at SLAS 2012
Product News May 08, 2012
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has launched Thermo Scientific Momentum 3, the third version of its popular automation control and scheduling software.
Momentum™ 3, which enables multiple users to operate continuously, features a new worklist functionality that, coupled with data tools and decision logic, makes it ideal for assay plate production, closed loop screening, hit confirmation and other automated screening workflows.
The graphically driven software effectively integrates and controls complete processes to provide walk-away functionality.
Thermo Fisher will display Momentum 3 within booth 810 during the 2012 Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening conference (SLAS) February 6-7.
Momentum 3 uses the latest advances in motion planning and dynamic scheduling to maximize the productivity of any automated workflow. Users can define, execute and monitor complex processes in a powerful yet easy-to-use visual environment.
The Lab Creator design environment allows users to manage multiple system layouts on the go, add instruments from the large, growing library or reconfigure available assets as needs change.
The worklist-driven interface allows users to easily load and unload multiple batches while managing a continuous queue of campaigns.
In addition, the new storage and device pooling features facilitate the grouping of multiple storage units and the dynamic execution of operations across a set of devices, based on availability and priority, for a highly efficient use of automation.
Enabling the most flexible and adaptable distributed motion system design, the Momentum 3 software supports more than 100 device drivers.
With the ability to import/export topologies and processes, as well as view past runs and edit processes in real-time, users are provided with an extremely easy-to-use automated workflow solution.
