Research institute chooses LIMS solution
The David H Murdock Research Institute (DHMRI)has selected Sample Master Pro LIMS from Accelerated Technology Laboratories (ATL) for its facilities at the North Carolina Research Campus.
The LIMS will support all laboratories including genomics, metabolomics, proteomics, light microscopy, electron microscopy and NMR. It will be used not only to manage data, but to facilitate discovery by allowing the integration of data generated from separate core laboratories.
The LIMS will provide the DHMRI with a configurable laboratory automation platform that can be configured to meet the dynamic data management requirements of the very diverse research laboratories located on the campus. The DHMRI/ATL partnership includes a technology sharing agreement that allows both organisations to use the LIMS technology innovations developed as part of this joint collaboration.
'To carry out the mission of our institution,' says Dr Ken Russell, chief information officer of the DHMRI, 'we have to employ flexible, practical and clever technology solutions. ATL will play a vital role in helping us achieve our goal. ATL provides an agile laboratory automation platform that minimises complexity while optimising the user experience for our staff working on the front lines of scientific research. A significant element of Mr Murdock's vision is to enable technology solutions that foster collaboration between science and technology.'
