Thermo Fisher Scientific has expanded available options for SampleManager LIMS software, offering laboratories end-to-end support of the software deployment in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud.
Under a contract agreement, Thermo Fisher will manage the process from installation and maintenance to backup and recovery. Labs will benefit from reduced financial and human resource investment associated with setting-up, running and maintaining traditional on-premise deployments or deployments to their own cloud hosting service, says Thermo Fisher.
Laboratories will retain control over the software upgrades and validation schedule, while having unlimited and secure access to data from anywhere at any time, which will drive well-informed decision making and easier cross-collaboration. According to Thermo Fisher, AWS Cloud deployment will also enable unparalleled levels of scalability, with the LIMS expanding to meet evolving business needs.
“Life science and industrial laboratories are increasingly adopting a cloud-first approach to enterprise-wide LIMS implementation,” said Richard Milne, Vice President and General Manager of Digital Science. “However, managing deployments to a laboratory’s own cloud hosting service can be a costly and resource-intensive process. We have developed the new cloud services to alleviate this burden and enable SampleManager LIMS software customers to use the system’s superior functionality and integration capabilities without having to invest significant resources into the setup and ongoing management of a cloud environment.”
