Thermo Scientific CLINICAL LIMS - Lab Centric Solutions for Patient Centric Results
- Jul 28, 2011 - Dec 31, 2013
"One of the major goals of the translational research movement has been to bridge the gap from bench to bedside and any initiative to blend the LIS with the LIMS can be understood as an extension of this quest. The lesson from all of this is obvious. We now need to make an effort to understand the relative strengths of LIS and LIMS and proceed to develop new systems that capture the best features of each of them."
Bruce Friedman, M.D., Professor Emeritus, University of Michigan School of Medicine, Department of Pathology
Thermo Scientific Clinical LIMS delivers comprehensive laboratory and patient management functionality needed by researchers and technicians involved in clinical and molecular diagnostics. The emerging fields of translational and personalized medicine and the associated disciplines surrounding genetic and molecular diagnostics have been the catalyst for a more symbiotic relationship between the patient-centric environment and the sample-centric lab. The ultimate goal of this new symbiosis is a streamlined end-to-end information flow following the patient from the point of care, to molecular testing and results analysis, to diagnoses and treatment which will enable the physician to better utilize the latest medical advancements.
With the advances in molecular diagnostics, physicians are able to improve their diagnoses and treatment of patients through better understanding of the unique genetic makeup of both patients and their diseases. Clinical testing labs responding to this increase in genetics-based testing are realizing that there needs to be a convergence of functionality between a traditional LIS (Laboratory Information System) that manages secure patient information, and a LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) that facilitates the comprehensive management of laboratory information, sample tracking, dynamic workflows and instrument integration. Unifying the distinct functionality required of physicians in hospital settings, as well as researchers in clinical labs, Thermo Scientific Clinical LIMS delivers lab-centric solutions for patient-centric results.
