Monday, my job was terminated. Tuesday and Wednesday were spent entirely just catching-up with people via e-mail and phone. Some of it was bona fide business development and there are some questions that keep coming up that I decided to just publicly answer for anyone who wants to know.
Printing labels for LIMS, ELN or LES is not always as easy as one might think.
One effort I’m just finishing is to replace my main office machine and now have a situation I haven’t had in many years – I don’t have a single LIMS, ELN or LES installed on it. It’s a weird, weird, weird feeling!
I have a LinkedIn update that mentions “iVenion” and, as a few of you have mentioned to me, that is not the correct spelling of “iVention.”
As I occasionally like to do, today’s post is based on a search that brought someone to this blog. Today’s blog has to do with the search phrase “difference between lims and sample manager”.
In my last post, I’d mentioned that the SampleManager services environment seems a little strange. Recent events make me think things are just strange all over the industry, right now.
Some of you have or will be seeing that I am now showing up in conjunction with iVention US. Before any rumors get started, let me tell those of you reading this exactly what this means and it doesn’t mean that I’m giving up my customers (so, to you vultures that are now ready to pounce, just forget it!).
I spent last week in training for a “new” LES (Laboratory Execution System – basically like a LIMS/ELN). I use the quotes because it’s new to me, although the software is relatively new to the market having been around less than ten years. “Why?,” you might ask.
In my last post, I said I was going to make some posts about giving our tips on products. Today’s product: SampleManager LIMS / LES.
The press release came out a couple days ago, now, but Accelrys (Symyx ELN, for one) bought VelQuest (ELN/LES).
