Thermo Fisher Scientific Demonstrates Advanced Laboratory Data Management Functionality for the Mining Industry at ExpoMin 2010

PHILADELPHIA - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, will exhibit its integrated laboratory informatics solutions for the mining industry within booth 500-2 during ExpoMin 2010, taking place from April 12-16 in Santiago, Chile. Designed to offer improved efficiencies and increased productivity for the modern mining, Thermo Scientific Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) and Chromatography Data Systems (CDS) have proven capabilities in rugged environments. The solutions provide real-time feedback on sample deviations, reduce paper and manual processes to increase efficiencies and speed decision-making, integrate systems and standardize processes across multiple labs.

Successful laboratories in the mining industry are focused on improving efficiencies and controlling processes to increase margins, verify the quality of their end products and maintain adherence to local environmental, governmental or other regulatory requirements, such as ISO 17025. Thermo Scientific LIMS and CDS are key components in these efforts, delivering a centralized data-management system to access data and extract information, which helps improve laboratory operations and generate faster results. Automating the laboratory with the latest Thermo Scientific LIMS and CDS solutions will also increase workflow efficiencies and improve margins.

Thermo Scientific informatics solutions also provide evidence and documentation to support laboratory compliance with the requirements of ISO 17025, allowing full traceability of personnel and procedures entered and facilitating the review of all incidents, corrective actions, non-conforming results and other events. Thermo Scientific informatics solutions for the mining industry also provide the foundation for a complete laboratory automation solution by integrating with instruments and laboratory and business systems, including PIMS, MES and ERP solutions. The solutions also feature built-in functionality to handle environmental monitoring of key areas of the laboratory and validation of methods.
