System and Technology Assessment

Astrix Technology Group provides complete Laboratory System and Technology Assessment services for a variety of systems including informatics, ELN, LIMS and more.  Informatics systems are a critical part of everyday operations in the modern laboratory. These systems help improve the efficiency of laboratory operations, reduce compliance risk, enable high quality R&D, improve product quality, and much more. Yet, the market currently contains a dizzying array of informatics solutions, and many more new systems become available every year. For the average research scientist, laboratory technician, or IT specialist, it is virtually impossible to keep up on the latest offerings in this market while still trying to do your day job. As a result, many companies lack the knowledge necessary to effectively determine the best solution to fit their requirements when the time comes to modernize and upgrade the laboratory operating environment.

At Astrix, we make it our business to keep a laser-like focus on the laboratory informatics industry and stay current on all relevant trends and product offerings. From COTS solutions to custom applications, we have technology expertise across hundreds of different platforms. We bring over 20 years of experience in laboratory automation and informatics consulting, along with deep scientific domain knowledge, to bear on helping you find the right solution for your Enterprise laboratory environment. Some of the systems we work with include:

  • Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS)
  • Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELN)
  • Scientific Data Management Systems (SDMS)
  • Chromatography Data Systems (CDS)
  • Graphing and Statistical Packages
  • Reporting and Business Intelligence Tools

Whether your need is a broad-based commercial application or a customized solution to support a proprietary process, our objective, vendor-neutral Systems and Technology Assessment will help you identify the appropriate solution. Our vendor agnostic approach means that we are working for you first. We treat your business as if it is our own, and you can be assured that we do not profit from the sale of any particular solution.

Our Systems and Technology Assessment begins with a thorough, best-practice method to determine and validate your requirements. With your validated requirements in hand, we then conduct a thorough vendor survey to identify the informatics solution(s) that best meets your needs. Our Systems and Technology Assessment provides you with a list of vetted options, along with all the detailed information you need to choose the right solution for your business. Put our science and technology expertise to work for you in order to assure that your laboratory informatics project proceeds smoothly and delivers all the benefits you have envisioned! Our Systems and Technology Assessment is a core Astrix competency.
