Thermo Scientific™ SampleManager LIMS™ software continues paving the way to the lab of the future with the release of version 21.0. The newest release of Thermo Fisher Scientific’s flagship LIMS solution delivers next-generation laboratory software to connect your organization to the future. This version features transformational lab management capabilities, with advanced data analytics capabilities, hands-free extended reality (XR) technology, simplified instrument connectivity and more.
Improved charting and statistical calculations
Version 21.0 connects to industry-leading statistical and calculation engines, enabling scientists to derive deeper insight from their data and make informed decisions. New statistical scripting capabilities allow SampleManager LIMS to use R script to return calculated data, statistics and charts that can be included in dashboards, charts or reports. A new workflow node can be used to initiate the statistical script. New charting widgets enable returned data sets to be represented graphically on dashboards.
Hands-free interaction to strengthen compliance
For users seeking hands-free access to SampleManager LIMS, version 21.0 supports new SampleManager XR software. SampleManager XR software enables scientists to work while using extended reality technology to interact with SampleManager LIMS hands free, driving process compliance, repeatability, and integrity. Scientists can access lab execution functionality, capturing pertinent data in real time as they follow working instructions presented in line of sight.
SampleManager XR software uses iris recognition technology to authenticate users to the system. Once authenticated, the analyst is presented with a personalized to-do list for the day. They can use voice and gaze activation to navigate the system and complete tasks. SampleManager XR software is a dedicated Microsoft HoloLens device app available from the Microsoft store, and provides a new interface to SampleManager software features.
Simplified instrument connection
SampleManager LIMS version 21 also offers new integration capabilities. A simple instrument PC sweeper communicates directly to the Rest API in SampleManager LIMS for result entry. The easy to set up service can also be used to trigger a workflow in SampleManager LIMS and to perform actions such as sample login. A small msi installer creates a service running on the instrument PC, so a SampleManager LIMS client install is not required.
- The sweeper service communicates with the application server via the REST API
- Reuses existing native integration configurations such as data sources, parsing scripts, mapping scripts and aliasing
- A new workflow node ‘Get Sweep Data’ allows workflow to be directly invoked by the sweeper
- Draws from the same pool of instrument connection licenses as the SampleManager SDMS (Scientific Data Management System) sweeper
