Autoscribe LIMS selected by UK energy innovation centre

Autoscribe’ Matrix Gemini Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) has been selected for use in the Energy Innovation Centre, part of the Warwick Manufacturing Group at the University of Warwick in the UK.

The Energy Innovation Centre deals with around 2,000 sample items in storage and a few hundred in active testing, which creates up to 1TB of data each year which takes a number of forms including proprietary databases, images and video. The test results are stored externally and Matrix Gemini is able to track metadata that points to the raw data so that test results can be tracked.

Although LIMS systems are generally associated with regulated informatics industries such as pharma this is not the first time that Autoscribe’ flagship product has been used in an unusual location. Scientific Computing World reported earlier this year that it was being deployed as a management system for a major UK lottery.

Autoscribe’s Managing Director, John Boother, commented: 'This is the latest example where Matrix Gemini has been chosen due to its ability to be readily configured to the laboratory’s specific current requirements while retaining the flexibility to be modified by the users themselves as needs change. We also understand that all of the other systems evaluated by WMG were designed for more traditional laboratory environments and couldn’t easily be adapted to WMG’s needs.' 

WMG, formerly Warwick Manufacturing Group, was created in 1980 by Professor Lord Kumar Bhattacharyya to help reinvigorate UK manufacturing. The purpose of WMG is to improve the competitiveness of UK organisations through the application of innovation, new technology and skills development.

WMG is currently developing the Energy Innovation Centre which will be a centre for national energy storage research and development. The £13million facility will help accelerate the development of battery cells for the next generation of vehicles.
