European outsourcing awards

Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced its nomination for three European Outsourcing Awards (EOA).

Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced its nomination for three European Outsourcing Awards (EOA). The EOA nominations included entries for Best Contract Analytical Project for the company’s LIMS in bioanalysis and an entry for Most Improved Process/Plant Facility and Best e-Business/IT Strategy for Thermo Scientific CONNECTS in pharmaceutical manufacturing.

The nominations focused on the company’s work with Accelera, an independent company within the Nerviano Medical Sciences Group, and at the bioanalytical laboratory of PRA International.

For Accelera, the company facilitated regulatory compliance by using the LIMS to manage and process statistical data related to ELISA (Enzyme-Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay) experiments in line with GLP regulations.

PRA International selected the LIMS to manage a workload of 175 000 samples per year, provide a platform to support profitable growth in an increasingly competitive market and supply superior service to their customers.

The third nomination focused on Thermo Scientific CONNECTS and its ability to integrate its laboratory operations with the manufacturing floor at the Global Pharmaceutical Supply Group (GPSG) of Janssen-Cilag Farmacêutica. The integration solution at GPSG consists of laboratory instrumentation, informatics software, enterprise systems and document management tools that provide a fully integrated pharmaceutical manufacturing environment.

"Being recognized in three separate EOA award categories is a great honour and shows how Thermo Fisher Scientific is providing breakthrough informatics solutions to the global life sciences industry," said Dave Champagne, vice president and general manager, informatics, for the company. "These three applications demonstrate how we work with and enable our customers to automate and integrate their laboratory operations, cost-effectively manage samples and resources, capture and analyse quality data, provide essential reports and ensure regulatory compliance."
