Veeda's India, UK Research Labs to Use Thermo Fisher's LIMS

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Thermo Fisher Scientific said today that Veeda Clinical Research will use its lab information management system in Veeda’s facilities in Ahmedabad, India, and in Oxford, UK.
 
Veeda’s Ahmedabad branch is already using Thermo Fisher’s Watson LIMS, while the UK lab is currently in the validation process and should be using the software “in the near future,” Thermo said.
 
The Anglo-Indian company Veeda, which provides clinical pathology, biomarker, and bioanalytical services, also has offices in Belgium, Germany, France, and the US.
 
The Ahmedabad lab offers services for small molecule pharmacokinetics, and the UK facility offers biomarker, large molecule pharmacokinetics, immunogenicity assay development, validation, and sample analysis.
