Thermo Fisher Scientific to Showcase New Informatics Offerings at PITTCON 2008

Moving Science Forward with LIMS and CDS Software

PHILADELPHIA, Penn., (January 11, 2008) - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, will showcase its new informatics offerings on booth #1741 at PITTCON® 2008 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, March 1-7. Under the theme "Moving Science Forward", the company will demonstrate a range of innovative analytical instruments, software and laboratory workflow solutions marketed under its Thermo Scientific brand.

The Thermo Scientific informatics exhibit at PITTCON 2008 will feature Darwin 3.0, the latest version of the innovative Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), which is purpose-built for pharmaceutical manufacturing R&D and QA/QC laboratories. The added functionality in Darwin 3.0 demonstrates the company's ability to offer one of the most comprehensive LIMS for this industry, which can be tailored to a laboratory's specific workflow.

Also on display will be a "sneak preview" of a next-generation Thermo Scientific Chromatography Data System (CDS), which integrates with LIMS and other data management systems to control LC/GC instruments and modules from numerous vendors in a manner that enables compliance with FDA regulations, including 21 CFR Part 11. Visitors who are interested in seeing the preview of this new database-driven CDS will also be entered to win a TomTom GPS navigation system if they submit a form to the Informatics staff on booth.

In addition, attendees can see demonstrations of the entire portfolio of Thermo Scientific informatics products: SampleManager LIMS, the flagship offering for industrial applications; Watson LIMS, the industry standard for bioanalytical laboratories; Galileo LIMS, which enables high-throughput compound screening for in-vitro ADME screening; and Nautilus LIMS, for dynamic environments requiring a flexible solution that can be easily modified as workflow requirements change, typical in research and contract organizations.

Visitors to booth #1741 will also have the unique opportunity to see the company's food safety laboratory showcase. Here you can see how LIMS and CDS software are integrated in a comprehensive workflow environment with other Thermo Scientific solutions such as Atlas CDS and the Thermo Scientific Accela(TM) high-speed liquid chromatography system.

In addition to its informatics solutions, Thermo Fisher Scientific will exhibit a wide range of industry-leading instrumentation and services at PITTCON 2008, designed to simplify complex workflows and processes so customers can focus on moving science forward.
