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.

In March 2017, Thermo Fisher Scientific acquired Core Informatics, LLC for $94 million, which was reportedly assigned to the Thermo's Analytical Instruments division.[9] Up until the summer of 2021, the Core Informatics web page was still operating independently, listing Core Informatics as "part of Thermo Fisher Scientific."[10] However, it appears Core Informatics has likely been fully absorbed into Thermo as of late 2021.

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.

Prior offerings

ChromQuest was a scalable CDS that "[c]ontrols LC and GC systems and associated instruments."[11] 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."[11] The software was discontinued sometime in the fall of 2018.[12]

Technology and products

Software

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

LIMS

Core LIMS is a laboratory information management system (LIMS) designed "to define, capture, and manage your R&D laboratory data across workflows." The software can be installed locally or hosted in the [[Cloud computing|cloud]. The software seamlessly integrates with Core ELN.[13]

Darwin is a pharmaceutical-based 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."[14] The software is apparently not available in the United States.

Nautilus is a general-purpose LIMS "that increases workflow efficiency, throughput and data reliability while simplifying administration, sample traceability and regulatory compliance."[15]

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."[16]

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."[17]


ELN

Core ELN is an electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) designed to help you "design and execute experiments and capture data." The software can be installed locally or hosted in the cloud. The software seamlessly integrates with Core LIMS.[18]


CDM and SDMS

Atlas is a scalable chromatography data system (CDS) designed as an "enterprise level application that controls instruments from multiple vendors ... [and] adds additional flexibility and scalability over corporate networks or WANs."[19] 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."[19]

Chromeleon is a CDS that "supports your chromatography operation throughout your enterprise − from research to routine quality testing − connecting people, instruments and enterprise data management software ..."[20] The software, originally developed by Dionex Corporation, appears to be marketed as enterprise CDS technology.

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."[21] 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.[21]

"Thermo Fisher acquired Core Informatics in early March for a total of $94 million, net of cash acquired. The informatics firm, which has been offering cloud-based platforms for scientific management, is now part of Thermo's Analytical Instruments segment. Last year, Core Informatics launched a validated version of its Platform-for-Science infrastructure for regulated laboratories in the biopharmaceutical industry and clinical genomics. Thermo said in the filing that Core Informatics had approximately $10 million in revenues in 2016 and that the purchase price exceeded the fair market value of the identifiable net assets, so it allocated $63 million of the price to goodwill."
