Charles River upgrades LIMS

Charles River Laboratories has upgraded to Debra version 5.7.10 for its radiolabelled mammalian metabolism and environmental fate studies, after having used LabLogic’s software for over 13 years for the management of all chemicals and pharmaceutical ADME studies. This upgrade follows on from the recent upgrade of the chromatographic system Laura to version 4.1.4.

Geoff Burns, director of Laboratory Sciences at Charles River Edinburgh, commented: ‘Integration of total radioactivity data with metabolite profiling is key in the characterisation of the disposition of drugs and chemicals. These LIMS upgrades allow us to offer additional efficiency and flexibility to our customers worldwide by providing an identical global platform to our preclinical teams in Montreal and Edinburgh. We are certainly better positioned to meet the increasing demands in these very challenging times for the industry.’
