Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced that its Nautilus LIMS (laboratory information management system) now delivers purpose-built functionality to meet the specific needs of the biobanking industry.

Nautilus LIMS for Biobanking and BioSpecimen Management will help manage biospecimen locations, online requests, chain-of-custody and patient demographics. Built on the plate handling, hierarchical sample management and workflows of Nautilus LIMS, this biobanking functionality will contribute to the increasing role of biobanks and biorepositories in meeting research and development requirements for relevant biospecimens. A brochure, Thermo Scientific Nautilus LIMS for Biobanking and Biospecimen Management, is available online at

Biospecimens serve as the basis for the novel research and development needed for the discovery of breakthrough drugs and medical treatments. The increased focus on translational medicine and epidemiology has led to a surge in the number of samples generated for research and analysis and to the development of extensive biobanks and repositories that provide the samples and libraries necessary for the high-throughput laboratories engaged in drug discovery research and development. The function of biobanks is quite diverse and can range from the storage of frozen cell aliquots intended for primary pharmaceutical screening and tissue biopsies for disease research to patient DNA samples used by government agencies and large, multi-sample population libraries for translational studies.

Nautilus LIMS for Biobanks can help accelerate sample analysis by providing optimised logistical and operational support to researchers by ensuring that samples are available when and where they are needed. Nautilus LIMS also delivers well-organised, accurate and timely data, providing both the scientific and business users with meaningful information essential for discovery and the daily decision-making process of the business of the biobank.
