Full Name: Lab Execution System
Debut: Pittcon 2014
Field Position: QA/QC and Analytical Labs
Skill Set: Complete control over methods and SOPs from a single source, combines SDMS, LIMS and LES into one integrated platform, obsoletes paper-based systems.
Regulatory Profile: Manages lab data to frame and assure compliance and quality regimes
Coach’s Notes: “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.”
Scout’s Notes: Thermo Fisher’s LES functionality is built on the Thermo Scientific SampleManger platform and is fully integrated with the newest SampleManager LIMS. It combines all the functionality and integration capabilities necessary to move towards a truly paperless lab, something 100 percent of labs now want. Thermo Fisher’s new LES functionality lets lab managers automate their SOPs and methods, but deeper integration enables so much more, including the ability to store original instrument data and have access to it. The exciting innovation is in the integration, so lab managers have complete control in a single software solution, and a real path to a paperless lab right environment.
