Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., a leader in the separation sciences and chromatography industries, announces the launch of its enhanced partner program. The program is designed to support the expansion of the companies' informatics activity via its partners around the globe, the world class program will utilize business partners to better meet customer needs in multiple industries. Thermo Scientific’s informatics offerings include laboratory information management systems, chromatography data systems, and spectroscopy software. The program will be launched at this year’s Thermo Informatics World (TIW) North American and European user meetings that will take place in Miami, Florida from October 15–19 and in Lisbon, Portugal from November 12–16.

Building on its partner program, this expansion will enable opportunities for partners to provide sales and services for Thermo Scientific’s informatics solutions. Partners with specific expertise and coverage in key vertical and geographic markets can expand the breadth of their offerings by including informatics in their solution set. Vendors of complementary hardware and software solutions can embed Thermo Scientific informatics products to extend the value of their solutions. And, as the valuable business information that resides in LIMS becomes increasingly integral to the overall enterprise, integrators will see increasing requirements to deliver integration and interoperability with enterprise level applications such as ERP and other business software.

“We’ve had great success with partners and recognize the value of the expertise that they bring to our customers to provide complete solutions,” said Dave Champagne, Vice President and General Manager of Thermo Fisher Scientific’s informatics. “There are significant opportunities to realize improved efficiencies and compliance in many laboratories in both traditional and emerging markets - and we are excited about working with our existing and new partners to increase the widespread adoption of our solutions.”
