Increased biopharmaceutical R&D outsourcing, exponentially growing data volumes, and new technologies have led to a growing complexity in laboratory workflows. At the same time, laboratories are being asked to reduce costs and increase quality, compliance, and efficiency. This challenging work environment has made highly functional Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) an operational necessity.
In this case Astrix supported a leading global pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and medical device contract research organization (CRO) in a major effort to select a commercial LIMS system that would meet their requirements. The customer has a broad and integrated portfolio of laboratory and manufacturing services serving biopharmaceutical companies – from discovery to commercialization. A critical requirement for the new LIMS solution was that it was flexible enough to support a broad portfolio across multiple laboratory environments.
