Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced that it has been named the winner of the Microsoft Corporation 2009 Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences Innovation Award in the Discovery and Product Innovation category, for the second consecutive year. The award honors best-in-class companies for their innovative use of Microsoft-based solutions. Microsoft selected Norway-based Hunt Research Centre and Biobank in recognition of its use of Thermo Scientific Nautilus LIMS (laboratory information management system) to better manage and analyze the large amounts of real-time medical data and provide valuable insight into disease status and progression. Thermo Scientific Nautilus LIMS provided HUNT with a comprehensive biobanking solution to gather, store, manage, track and retrieve large amounts of data securely, and yield real-time, dependable analysis and reports.

The Award, announced at the Drug Information Association's (DIA) 45th Annual Meeting in San Diego, was presented to Thermo Fisher Scientific and Hunt Research Centre and Biobank to acknowledge the technology solutions used for one of the largest population-based health study ever performed.

"Whether it is the challenging regulatory environment, dispersed silos of information or changing dynamics within an organization, life sciences companies today face enormous challenges," said Michael Naimoli, U.S. life sciences industry solutions director, Microsoft Corp. "Thermo Fisher Scientific and Hunt Research Centre and Biobank are recognized at this year's award ceremony for exemplifying how technology built on the Microsoft software platform can help address these issues by empowering people to better connect, collaborate and make informed decisions to drive advances in science."

Hunt Research Centre and Biobank implemented Thermo Scientific Nautilus LIMS to automate their process from the clinic to the laboratory in order to accommodate for the vast scope and progressively increasing study complexity. Building on the Microsoft technology, the Thermo Fisher and Hunt application is used on one of the largest health studies ever performed. Three studies spanning 25 years have been run on an integrated family and personal database of approximately 100,000 people from Norway. The studies support epidemiological, clinical and preventative medical research and offer valuable insight into disease status and progression. Hunt paired Thermo Scientific Nautilus LIMS with Microsoft technology which included InfoPath and SQL Server to increase throughput and automation.

The deployment has enabled secure storing, efficient management and real-time reporting of data while also ensuring uninterrupted, dependable transmission of information between the Biobank and various national heath registries. Productivity, throughput and accuracy have all increased. By improving efficiency and data reliability, Nautilus LIMS has enabled Hunt Research Centre and Biobank to better serve the research community, providing a strong basis for the discovery of novel diagnostic and therapeutic products.

"The implementation of Nautilus LIMS has set new standards for functionality and efficient use of the HUNT laboratory resources. Being totally configurable, Nautilus LIMS has been very easy to implement right out-of-the-box while offering the added benefit of being fully compatible with Microsoft Office for maximum ease of use with little or no user training," explains Thor Gunnar Steinsli, LIMS Manager of HUNT Research Centre and Biobank .

Thermo Fisher's vision for enabling knowledge-driven discoveries utilizes the companies' market-leading technology to help Biobanks and research organizations integrate their systems, dramatically enhance collaboration and increase information sharing and learning.

"Thermo Scientific Nautilus LIMS is a Microsoft-based, flexible and easy-to-use solution that helps organizations like Hunt drive efficiencies, connect better with customers and make more informed decisions faster," says Dave Champagne, vice president and general manager, Informatics at Thermo Fisher Scientific. "We are honored to have won this prestigious award two years in a row, and this project with HUNT Research Centre and Biobank acknowledges the key role that biobanks play in the discovery of novel medicines and treatments."
