PRESS RELEASE

Lab Automation 2008 poster

Thermo Fisher Scientific has released a technical poster demonstrating the importance of configurability and flexibility in laboratory information management systems (LIMS) design for life sciences and high throughput screening applications. The new technical poster is available free-of-charge.

The poster was originally presented at the Lab Automation 2008 conference in Palm Springs, CA and is entitled The New Age of Configurability and Flexibility in LIMS Design for Life Sciences and High Throughput Screening.  The authors are senior technical and development managers at Thermo Fisher Scientific with decades of experience in pharmaceutical and biotechnology laboratories. They highlight the need for plate handling functionality to be built into the core LIMS solution for high throughput screening (HTS) environments.
