Laboratory Integration

Integrate and automate your laboratory data, equipment and processes to improve efficiency and reduce costs.

Increasing quality and productivity while reducing operational costs is one of the highest hurdles in every laboratory.

Human error has a significant impact on the quality of your laboratory’s service and the profitability of your business. So-called “dead time” and time lost in unproductive activities substantially affect the efficiency of your laboratory and the engagement level of your employees.

Automation of laboratory processes maximises throughput and minimises sources of error. This is especially true for the many manual steps that are repeated every day.

One of the most common challenges for operating an effective laboratory is the lack of integration between production, laboratory and enterprise systems. If left unconnected, with separate access, these systems create islands of information.

Manual transfer of information between different departments and systems results in unnecessarily long lead times from receiving an order to generating results and final reporting within the enterprise system.

Operators waiting or searching for necessary information and results leads to a substantial amount of dead time and a loss of productivity.

Manual registration of results from analysis instruments is not only time consuming but also prone to human errors.

Thermo Scientific Data Manager » We can help you make your laboratory more efficient by implementing:

  • Automated workflows – Integration of the lab system with other business systems (i.e. enterprise resource planning or manufacturing execution system) enables automated reporting of test results directly to the production floor, logistics and quality assurance departments.
  • Consolidation of laboratory data – With the support of a flexible and powerful data transformation solution you can translate and consolidate data from different data sources. This can be done independently from the LIMS system used at your laboratory.
  • Integration of instruments with LIMS – Automatic transmission of data from various lab instruments, and direct recording of results from reading plates or computers, improves data integrity and laboratory workflow efficiency.

Integrating your laboratory and wider business systems enables you to achieve important benefits, including:

  • Significantly shorter lead times.
  • Time gains for lab personnel – staff are able to carry out additional tasks.
  • Elimination of manual errors associated with handling of test results or transfer of data.
  • Higher and more consistent quality in production.
  • Cost savings due to streamlining workflows and productivity improvements.
A LIMS solution is essential if you want to turn your operations into a SMART Lab

Thermo Scientific™ SampleManager LIMS™ can be seamlessly integrated with Thermo Scientific’s Scientific Data Management System (SDMS) and Laboratory Execution System to form a powerful and easy to use platform solution that will help drive the future profitability of your lab.

PlantVision understand both our and our customers’ operations. We can rely on them to deliver smart and user-friendly solutions.
Britt Rahm, Lantmännen Analycen
Before, we were forced to enter lab results at a specific time. Now, we enter results when it suits us. It is also easier to view results, and for relevant parties to examine and comment on them.
