LabVantage and InforSense create LIMS alliance

2 May 2008



LabVantage Solutions and InforSense have announced an alliance to integrate the InforSense platform with LabVantage’s flagship Sapphire laboratory information management suite (LIMS) and for LabVantage to resell InforSense along with its Sapphire LIMS.

‘One of the key challenges that our customers face is how to integrate, analyse and visualise data from multiple data sources across their organisation, including from Sapphire, to support more efficient and effective decisions,’ said Ronald Kasner, vice president of corporate development for LabVantage. ‘Sapphire’s operational workflow and data management capabilities, coupled with InforSense’s integration and analytics workflow capabilities, offer customers a robust, yet flexible enterprise backbone for laboratory informatics – what we refer to as federated informatics,’ he added.

By leveraging configurable-off-the-shelf (COTS), modular driven products, rather than custom developed software or services, LabVantage can tailor point specific or enterprise wide solutions to address each organisation’s unique needs. The combined Sapphire and InforSense infrastructure leverages the modularity of both platforms to effectively aggregate, mine, and analyse data stored in Sapphire and the Sapphire modules coupled with data stored in other heterogeneous scientific and operational data sources, including in-house and proprietary R&D and manufacturing applications. Together, the platforms deliver a powerful and versatile laboratory informatics solution spanning discovery, development and manufacturing.
