Thermo Fisher Scientific and Symyx Technologies have collaborated to offer Thermo Scientific’s chromatography data system integration solution on Symyx Technologies’ electronic laboratory notebook.

According to the company, this integration allows users to drive their laboratory business processes from an integrated solution, eliminating repetitious entry of information and providing live interaction of chromatography data and, ultimately, increasing throughput. It is claimed that users can design and drive chromatography experiments within the interface, providing customers with the ability to expand the capabilities of their existing data system, connecting sample preparation data with chromatography. This gives users the ability to access data directly from a multitude of disparate instruments through one interface. In addition, the solution is reported to facilitate analytical method development and allows users to streamline chromatographic analysis across their organization.

“This solution benefits the market by providing a truly integrated solution,” explains Dave Champagne, vice president and general manager, Informatics at Thermo. He says that the integration means that the company can now provide “an integrated LIMS-CDS-ELN solution. This enables both an efficient laboratory process and the flow of information from the laboratory to the rest of the organization, allowing management to have the information they need to drive critical business objectives.”
