ABI, Mettler Toledo Partner on Lab Management Data Integration

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Applied Biosystems and Mettler Toledo have integrated lab information management systems and software in an effort to offer researchers the ability to manage data between instruments, ABI said today.
Mettler Toledo, based in Greifensee, Switzerland, makes weighing instruments for drug development and other biological and chemical research areas.
Under the partnership, ABI will market, install, and maintain the integrated products, which include its SQL*LIMS and Mettler Toledo’s LabX data management software.
