Web services have the potential to provide a standard mechanism for LIMS to work with instrument systems David Shin, M.D., Richard Wagner and Jo Webber Ph.D. In recent years, major vendors including Microsoft, IBM and SUN have focused attention on service-based architectures, such as Web Services. Products that expose Web Services via an n-tier architecture offer numerous advantages to the LIMS customer in terms of legacy compatibility, systems integration and scalability.

There are many types of systems that attempt to address the growing need to manage unstructured electronic records Michael H. Elliott Drowning in a sea of data? Nervous about 21 CFR Part 11? Worried about longer and longer product development times? Having a difficult time just finding the information you need to make decisions? Worried about the protection of your intellectual property?
One of the most sophisticated mathematical programs around just got more sophisticated. It is faster, smarter, able to handle more types of problems with more advanced algorithms, and able to offer more publishing options than ever before. While many users may think of Mathematica as just a math package, the developers like to think of it as a technical computing system.
