Thermo Fisher Scientific Informatics : 29 May, 2009  (Special Report)
FOCUS ZONE REPORT Thermo Fisher Scientific introduces new functionality to the latest release of its Thermo Scientific Watson LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) that brings critical time and cost savings to pharmaceutical companies and contract research organizations (CROs) involved in drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic (DMPK) studies for drug discovery and development.
The latest release of Watson LIMS, the leading bioanalytical laboratory information management system, delivers improved efficiencies and reduced validation time, contributing to time and cost savings and improved time to market.

The new functionality in Watson 7.4 simplifies daily workflow for bioanalytical laboratories by delivering enhanced functionality for incurred sample reanalysis (ISR). ISR has become an accepted way to assess the quality of bioanalytical assays and is accepted within the pharmaceutical industry and by regulatory agencies. The latest release of Watson LIMS allows researchers to perform incurred sample reanalysis on an individual sample basis, and eliminates the previously required mandatory repeat runs for bioanalytical samples. Watson's new ISR reporting features provide new comparison methods with built-in calculations and greater ease of use by enabling flexible, pre-configured reporting of ISR results using templates, for an out-of-the-box user experience.

Additional new functionality enhancements to Watson 7.4 include performance enhancements in the Design Summary Report, delivering a dramatic increase in reporting speed, enhancements to the Immune Response Module and the Watson Web Services Library, enabling users to more easily manage the status of samples, choose samples with a Positive Screen or a Positive Titer result for use in subsequent Assay tests, and import samples and sample-related information from external applications.

Thermo Scientific Watson LIMS v. 7.4 also includes an industry-first built-in data interchange with the company's TSQ Series mass spectrometers, allowing for direct data acquisition, peak integration and re-integration, storage, archiving and reporting of raw data, all under the control of Watson's centralised Oracle database repository.

Watson's connectivity to Thermo Scientific TSQ Series mass spectrometers eliminates time-consuming manual verification of LC/MS data transfers, and provides a single audit trail for QA and the FDA, providing greater workflow efficiencies, time and cost savings. The end-to-end solution delivers enhanced functionality for data security and chain of custody for regulatory compliance, as well as a lower cost of ownership due to the reduced validation burden. Watson's direct data acquisition from Thermo Scientific TSQ Series LC/MS instruments, together with its new incurred sample reanalysis functionality and reporting delivers time savings to pharmaceutical companies and CROs, allowing them to bring drugs to market faster for less cost.

Thermo Fisher Scientific plans to demonstrate Watson LIMS v. 7.4 at the Annual Conference of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) in Philadelphia from May 31 to June 4, 2009.
