Thermo Fisher Scientific announced that it has been awarded the Microsoft Life Sciences Innovation Award for the third consecutive year. The award recognizes companies for their innovative use of Microsoft-based solutions.

The company was selected together with Emory University, part of the Atlantic Clinical and Translational Science Institute (ACTSI), for the use of LIMS to advance information exchange in the clinical and translational science environment across a diverse set of laboratories.

Michael Naimoli, director of life sciences industry solutions, Microsoft explained more: “The Emory/ACTSI implementation takes advantage of Thermo Scientific WebAccess deployed on Microsoft technologies to deliver rich client functionality via a web browser to both internal and external users. In addition, the Study Design Module created by Thermo Fisher and Emory using Microsoft tools provides an easy to use graphical user interface for study design, which allows the ACTSI to design workflows more quickly.”

The institute is focused on accelerating the translation of laboratory discoveries into healthcare innovations for patients and plays an important role in North American health research by supporting investigators across Emory University, Morehouse School of Medicine, Grady Hospital, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and the Georgia Institute of Technology. A key initiative is the selection and deployment of LIMS across the consortium to support a “virtual bio-repository” environment.
