Large Mexican contract for Thermo Fisher Scientific

Pemex Gas and Basic Petrochemical (PGBP) has standardised its laboratory automation by deploying Thermo Scientific’s Atlas CDS and SampleManager LIMS software.

PGBP, a subsidiary of the largest company’s in Mexico, processes more than 600,000 samples per year, with 325,000 chromatography samples tested annually. The company piloted SampleManager at its Tabasco gas processing facility before deploying the LIMS across all nine sites in 2006. The decision to incorporate Atlas CDS was made in July 2006.

The LIMS and CDS software are part of a technical platform that includes SAP/R3 Enterprise Resource Management System and OSI/PI Process Information Management System to support business operations.

‘The use of Atlas CDS and its integration with SampleManager LIMS makes operations, maintenance, and incidence resolution easier, now that we are working with a single system and under standardised operations,’ said Jose Manuel Cardel Gonzalez, laboratories coordinator for PGBP. ‘This allows us real-time control and access to the whole production process.’
