Thermo Scientific develops and distributes scientific hardware and software solutions. In May 2016, parent company Thermo Fisher Scientific converted the company website for Thermo Scientific to "Thermo Fisher Scientific," with domain names redirecting.[1] As of October 2016, the status of the "Thermo Scientific" brand is not clear.

History

Some of Thermo Scientific's existing products are acquisitions, originating from the purchase of InnaPhase Corporation in 2004.[2][3]

On May 14, 2006, Thermo Electron and Fisher Scientific announced that they would merge in a tax-free, stock-for-stock exchange, with the merged company being named Thermo Fisher Scientific; the merger was announced completed on November 9.[4] However, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) ruled that this acquisition was anti-competitive with regard to centrifugal vacuum evaporators (CVEs) because "Thermo and Fisher are the only two significant suppliers of high-performance CVEs in the United States."[5] The FTC required Fisher to divest Genevac to settle the charges of anti-competitive behavior. In April 2007, Genevac was sold to Riverlake Partners, LLC[6], and the divestiture met FTC approval in March 2007.[7]

The Galileo ADME/toxicology LIMS[8] was quietly phased out sometime in 2014.

Thermo Scientific is one of the brand names used by Thermo Fisher Scientific. Other brand names used over the years have included Fisher Scientific, Chromacol, Nalgene, Cellomics, Cole-Parmer, Pierce Protein Research, and Fermentas. However, in May 2016, the company website for Thermo Scientific was converted to "Thermo Fisher Scientific," with domain names redirecting.[1] As of October 2016, the status of the "Thermo Scientific" brand is not clear.

Technology and products

Software

Thermo Fisher develops, supports, and markets many software products for the laboratory, science, and health industries:

LIMS

Darwin is a pharmaceutical-based laboratory information management system (LIMS) designed to help reduce "the time it takes to implement, validate, achieve user acceptance and maintain system upgrades, all while improving productivity and end-user experience."[9]

Nautilus is a general-purpose LIMS "that increases workflow efficiency, throughput and data reliability while simplifying administration, sample traceability and regulatory compliance."[10]

SampleManager is an industry-neutral LIMS that "increases productivity and improves the responsiveness and agility of labs across a wide range of regulated and non-regulated industries."[11]

Watson is LIMS for bioanalytical labs that "facilitates efficient study design and data transfer while streamlining assay validation, bioanalysis, instrument interfacing, sample tracking, results reporting and regulatory compliance."[12]

CDMS and SDMS

Atlas is a scalable chromatography data management system (CDMS) designed as an "enterprise level application that controls instruments from multiple vendors ... [and] adds additional flexibility and scalability over corporate networks or WANs."[13] Features include: "sample preparation, multiple channel and multiple inlet updates, advanced chromatogram overlay evaluation," "digital instrument communication, direct control and data acquisition, peak data processing, and reporting."[13]

ChromQuest is a scalable CDMS that "[c]ontrols LC and GC systems and associated instruments."[14] The software "can set up conditional actions in a sequence prior to injections, such as trigger a notification, abort, run a shut-down, or re-calibrate."[14]

Data Manager is a scientific data management system (SDMS) that "lets you securely share, compare, search, query and reuse raw instrument and document data across your organization."[15] Features include: instrument integration, data sharing, raw data and normalized XML data management, 150+ file type convertors, metadata support, and 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.[15]
