Thermo Fisher Scientific to Develop LIMS Tool With Microsoft

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Thermo Fisher Scientific today said it will work with Microsoft to develop a new next-generation lab-management system on the Microsoft platform.
 
The technology will be called the Electronic Laboratory Notebook.
 
Thermo, a member of Microsoft’s BioIT Alliance, said it has already developed its Darwin LIM system using the Microsoft.NET platform and will use Microsoft.NET 3.0 for the ELN system.
 
Thermo said the ELN will be used to record extensive notes, share data in collaborations, and access both structured and unstructured reference data.
