Connect for individuals

Connect Platform Individual edition links Thermo Fisher Scientific instruments to a central platform for experiment monitoring, data collection and scientific analysis. An array of apps covering a range of scientific disciplines help derive insights from your data. Securely share data with others while managing access and file permissions. Individual edition users get 25 GB of Connect Platform cloud storage for free, with upgrades available. 

 

Access to Services Central enables instrument service requests (North America only).


Connect your team

In addition to the benefits of Individual edition, Connect Platform Team edition offers expanded instrument connectivity with an enhanced reservation calendar. Teams get 1TB of Connect Platform cloud storage, with upgrades available. Your team, their accounts and data are all owned and managed by your organization. Data is retained from user accounts that are deactivated, and remains accessible to your admins, so you never lose control of your organization's data. Federated identity & single sign-on provide simplified login for your users and immediate access control by your IT organization.


Connect your enterprise

Connect Platform Enterprise edition integrates and aligns the software you already have, making it easier for scientists to execute processes and delivering a more streamlined experience. You can bring new tools in, so the Connect Platform grows with you as your requirements change. To keep things simple, system administrators create unique software ecosystems and views for departments, groups, teams, or individuals. Connect Enterprise edition empowers the scientist, providing a unified user experience and integration tools to improve data quality, reduce cycle times, and support more effective and accurate decision making.

  • Control access centrally through your corporate identity platform
  • Run audit reports from a single interface
  • Extend your ecosystem using integration APIs and developer tools to connect software and hardware from different vendors

Connect your workflows

Connect Platform software streamlines tasks, eliminates clicks, and drives down non-value add actions when executing common scientific workflows. Scientists can easily see what their next tasks are, and which need to be addressed first, as well as their upcoming workload. Workflow orchestration drives scientists through stepwise, task-oriented processes by alerting them to next steps, leading them to the application they need, and automating decisions based on business intelligence. Workflow orchestration facilitates and streamlines software interaction, enabling scientists to focus on science.

  • Orchestration can be visualized and designed through an intuitive designer that connects workflows across systems and processes
  • Import instrument data into orchestrated laboratory workflows to streamline lab processes
  • Lead scientists through tasks with alerts to next steps and priority tasks
  • View and manage personal workload through a single user interface
  • Keep workflows moving with automated next steps using business intelligence
  • Transition work between individuals to ease workload and improve efficiencies
  • Streamline transitions between multiple systems for an improved experience

Connect your people

Working together effectively, so people are empowered to make decisions and execute tasks to achieve their goals, is a key component of the Connect Platform. Software should not be a barrier or a challenge. With the Connect Platform everyone who needs to work together can create and share data, reserve time on instruments and equipment, contribute to workflow execution, review results, and create and distribute reports. Access is managed via your own corporate identity platform, providing granular control and security.

Connect your data

You don’t need to collect more data. You need to take advantage of the data you already have. The data you have stored today may contain the foundations of a future product, treatment, or compound. Bring all your data together in one place and make it accessible for advanced data analytics and AI (Artificial Intelligence) solutions. The Connect Platform provides secure, scalable data collection and storage for all data and metadata, providing the complete scientific story and enabling future reanalysis to derive hidden insights. Collect, extract, and collate data from all your stores to provide a single source of truth.

  • Collect and store data according to Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable (FAIR) data principles and enable AI/ML
  • Data integrity features address data and application access, from creation through to retention
  • Import legacy data to enable insights from historical and larger data sets
  • Secure, centralized repository enables advanced analytics
