Thermo Scientific LIMS used by JCL for bioanalysis

JCL Bioassay USA has implemented Thermo Scientific Watson LIMS, the  bioanalytical LIMS (laboratory information management system). JCL, one of the largest contract research organisations (CRO) in Japan specialising in preclinical and clinical bioanalysis, recently expanded its small and large molecule bioanalytical services to the United States and is using Watson LIMS across its laboratories.

Prior to implementing Watson LIMS, JCL had been using a manual, paper-based system to  manage the data generated in its labs. Since CROs often operate under tight timetables to meet the requirements of their pharmaceutical sponsors, the delays caused by paper-based reporting forced researchers to stay late – even overnight – to submit results on time.

Watson LIMS now enables the company to collect and analyse data more accurately and efficiently in labs across its distributed enterprise.

'Immediately following our decision to enter the US market, we knew we needed a LIMS that combined proven industry-specific performance with flexibility,' said Jenny Lin, vice president of operations and CSO for JCL Bioassay USA.

'By implementing Watson LIMS, it dramatically changes the landscape of lab operations.  Not only does it provide an easy access for sample management, it also greatly enhances method validation, sample analysis and data management efficiency in our labs.'
