Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced that ESKOM, the largest electricity supply company in Southern Africa signed a contract to rollout Thermo Scientific SampleManager LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) to its thirty four laboratories. The project will be delivered via Thermo Fisher's partner in South Africa, LimsTricS.

As the corporate standard at ESKOM, the Thermo Scientific SampleManager LIMS will be used to track, store, manage, report and share analytical data enterprise-wide. The standardization project is focused on saving costs as well as improving decision making through the more efficient use of data.

In reaching the decision to rollout SampleManager LIMS, ESKOM went through a rigorous process of evaluating different LIMS products, including three pilot installations and the implementation of specific laboratory workflows. This enabled the ESKOM project team to do an in-depth evaluation of the short listed LIMS products and choose (or decided on) the best solution that met their needs.

SampleManager LIMS was selected by ESKOM for rollout to thirty four laboratories sited across South Africa based on industry expertise and the suitability of SampleManager for the application. LimsTricS, the local Thermo Fisher Scientific implementation partner for South Africa will implement the system at ESKOM. LimsTricS has extensive experience in implementing SampleManager LIMS and has represented Thermo Scientific LIMS products in Southern Africa since 1998.

"SampleManager LIMS is the most widely installed LIMS in industrial process applications worldwide, making it the ideal system for Eskom to deploy over their multi-site implementation. In addition, SampleManager will facilitate process harmonization and increase their efficiencies across their laboratory operations," claims Dave Champagne, vice president and general manager of informatics for Thermo Fisher.
