An automated method for sample management and enhanced method validation, sample analysis and data management
Global public health and safety organisation NSF International has upgraded its informatics technology with the installation of Thermo Scientific's Watson LIMS (laboratory information management system) at its laboratory in Bristol, Connecticut, US.
The laboratory has standardised on Watson LIMS to enhance reporting, improve efficiency and ensure data accuracy for its bioanalytical method development and validation services, enabling them to simplify compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Good Laboratory Practices (GLP).
Thermo Scientific says the Watson LIMS brings time and cost savings to pharmaceutical companies and CROs involved in drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic (DMPK) studies for drug discovery and development by reducing validation time and improving overall efficiency.
'NSF International’s Health Sciences division has built a reputation for delivering technical expertise and consultancy across the full range of GMP and GLP analytical solutions,' said James Scull, Bristol Laboratory General Manager at NSF Health Sciences.
'Our Bristol laboratory needed an informatics platform that combined proven industry-specific performance with compatibility for reporting to FDA, DEA, and other regulatory agencies,' he added.
'By standardising on Watson LIMS at our Bristol lab, we now have an automated method for sample management and greatly enhanced method validation, sample analysis and data management efficiencies with the rest of our labs worldwide.'
