LIMS system aids oil and chemical testing

Intertek plans to deploy SampleManager LIMS from Thermo Fisher Scientific in 90 per cent of its oil, chemical and agriculture laboratories by the end of 2007.

The software will aid Intertek to process the high volume of samples required for its contractual quality and safety testing services, and replaces an existing commercial and home-grown LIMS product. The LIMS will allow communication between Intertek’s many laboratories, and customers too will be able to access the data.

‘The system offers a majority of the functionality that Intertek requires, with the least amount of customization compared to other solutions we evaluated,’ said Darryl Jesionowski, Intertek’s LIMS project manager.

Intertek also plans to deploy Thermo’s chromatography and spectroscopy software in the near future.
