Product News: New Thermo Scientific Lab Execution System (LES) Functionality Gives QA/QC and Analytical Labs Control of Standard Operating Procedures and Methods

07 Apr 2014


Analytical and QA/QC labs, under ever-increasing pressure to improve time to market, ensure compliance and realize cost savings, now have an all-inclusive informatics solution that gives them complete control over their methods and standard operating procedures (SOPs) without having to purchase, integrate and validate software from multiple vendors.

The new Thermo Scientific Lab Execution System (LES) is web-based, built on and fully integrated with the Thermo Scientific enterprise-level lab information management system (LIMS) platform, allowing the LES functionality to be accessed from the LIMS or from any web browser. Thermo Fisher Scientific showcased the Lab Execution System during analytica 2014.

Combined with the instrument integration capabilities of Thermo Scientific Integration Manager, and the raw data storage and retrieval capabilities of the company’s SDMS (Data Manager), the new LES expands Thermo Fisher Scientific’s growing informatics platform, and offers customers the most comprehensive paperless lab solution available today.

The LES offers a number of embedded, feature-rich capabilities, enabling lab managers and scientists across all industries to:
• Achieve full instrument integration, including managing their own methods and workflow;
• Retrieve and archive any kind of raw scientific data; and
• Export the results across the organization in the format required by the recipient.

“Our customers are increasingly searching for opportunities to streamline laboratory processes and come closer to a true paperless lab. Doing this takes cost out of the workflow and other SOPs, allowing lab personnel to focus on an improved process and more revenue-generating activities,” says Sanjay Khunger, vice president and general manager, informatics, for Thermo Fisher. “Our goal is to help our customers achieve a truly integrated lab environment. A comprehensive informatics solution is one of the most critical investments any business can make if they are moving towards a truly integrated and connected enterprise.”
