LIMS development collaboration

Thermo Fisher Scientific is to work with Microsoft with the aim being to develop laboratory knowledge management solutions on Microsoft’s technology platform. It is hoped the new software will allow the development of easy-to-use software tools that increase laboratory productivity with less risk and a superior user experience.

Thermo Fisher has already developed Darwin LIMS on the Microsoft .NET platform. In addition, SampleManager LIMS is now supported on the SQL server, providing customers with a choice of databases. It is also part of the Microsoft Bio-IT Alliance and supports open XML standards for data exchange.

Thermo Fisher is now working on a new Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) solution that will be based on the Microsoft.Net 3.0 Framework.
