A look at what we might expect to see in 2005 and beyond Jo Webber, Ph.D. The use, implementation and deployment of laboratory information management systems (LIMS) in the pharmaceutical industry is shaped by underlying trends. For example, pharmacovigilance, which the World Health Organization defines as “the science and activities relating to the detection
Jim Miller, Director of Software and Informatics, Agilent Technologies, Inc. It goes without saying that the amount of data we are confronted with in our everyday lives has increased drastically since the advent of the Internet and appears to be rising exponentially.
Fluorescence microscopy has emerged as one of the most powerful tools in cell biology, and is poised to drive discovery in the new field of systems biology. Data acquired as a result of fluorescence microscopy applications in the laboratory has been critical to developing an understanding of cell biology
A look at the new crop of scanning and indexing utilities John R. Joyce, Ph.D. As disk drives become larger and larger, it also becomes harder and harder to keep track of all the information on them. The operatingsystem you are using might provide some tools to help keep track of this information. Even Windows contains a Search function to help locate specific files
In a previous article that appeared in the March 2004 issue of SC&I, I discussed likely trends in the development of the chromatography data system (CDS) to deal with mounting pressures on every laboratory. I felt that software developers would need to prepare for these trends
Chromatographic techniques account for a substantial portion of the collected analytical data in analytical laboratories today. Although liquid chromatography (LC) predominates, gas chromatography (GC) and super-critical fluid chromatography (SFC) are important too
Can the penetration of a company into the informatics sector lead big firms to the Promised Land? Randy C. Hice The pedigree of the firm has less to do with your chances of success than the skill set of that person who shoulders the burden of defining, designing and containing your informatics initiative.
