Innovations in LIMS

Thermo Scientific SampleManager LIMS

Thermo Scientific SampleManager LIMS integrates your instruments and other laboratory support systems (ELN, SDMS, scales and balances, automation), and integrates your lab with the rest of your business by connecting laboratory data and workflow to enterprise systems such as ERP, MES, and PIMS. SampleManager™ LIMS is the most widely deployed LIMS in the world, delivering highly comprehensive enterprise-level dashboard functionality. Its functionality addresses the critical business and operating needs of three distinct, but interrelated, parts of your company's infrastructure—your lab personnel, IT and systems administrators, and management. For technical product information, case studies, webinars, and published articles:

How LIMS Can Help You Prepare for the Food Safety Modernization Act
Traceability through all stages of production, processing, and distribution is critical for enabling food producers to monitor quality, effectively manage recalls, and limit product and revenue loss. The Thermo Scientific LIMS solution offers a secure environment for the management of batch relationships between raw ingredients, processed materials, and packaged goods, and can help food producers minimize the risks associated with contaminated foods.

Automated System Suitability Testing (SST) with Chromeleon 7 CDS Software
In the effort to comply with US FDA and USP system performance requirements, Thermo Scientific Dionex Chromeleon CDS software provides proper System Suitability Testing to ensure appropriate and continued performance of a chromatographic system. This Technical Note shows how Chromeleon™ CDS software automatically performs SST on any set of criteria, such as injection repeatability, capacity factor, peak tailing factor. SST can be performed during sequence acquisition, and the sequence can be automatically aborted if any value fails.

General Chromatography

Streamlining Searches for Method Solutions with the D-Library
Simplify your search for pertinent applications using the simple and intuitive D-Library database. Just enter a keyword or two, such as an analyte or matrix, and D-Library presents you with a list of relevant solutions. Each solution contains a detailed description, an interactive chromatogram, equipment requirements, method conditions, and additional resources. You can use advanced search criteria, such as run time, column specifications, and type of chromatography (HPLC, GC, IC), to download the desired method directly from D-Library into Chromeleon CDS software.

Take the Pain Out of Chromatographic Peak Integration
Data accuracy and reliability can be dramatically affected by how your CDS software distinguishes peaks from noise, identifies the baseline, maintains peak and baseline detection from run to run, and handles unresolved peaks. See how the Thermo Scientific Dionex Cobra peak detection algorithm with the SmartPeaks integration assistant in Chromeleon 7 CDS software provides the best solution for data accuracy and reliability. Examples are provided.
