Autoscribe Informatics Invests in MIDAS to aid Laboratory 4.0

publication date: Aug 4, 2020
author/source: Autoscribe Informatics


Matrix Instrument Data Acquisition System (MIDAS) extended to drive integration and automation from a wide selection of laboratory instruments.

Autoscribe Informatics, a leading global laboratory informatics provider, announced the latest release of the Matrix Instrument Data Acquisition System (MIDAS). This release continues the company’s commitment to helping their customers maximize the value of their laboratory informatics investment. By further supporting the integration of laboratory instruments and equipment to the Matrix Gemini Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), MIDAS helps drive efficiency and quality within the entire organization.

Laboratory 4.0, the corollary of Industry 4.0 in laboratories, is driving greater deployment and use of internet ready analytical instrumentation. This provides the opportunity for laboratories to increase automation by connecting their instruments directly to their LIMS. The need for the manual transcription of results is therefore redundant and typographical errors eliminated. The overall effect is to improve efficiency, ensure quality and enhance data integrity.

The extended functionality of MIDAS v1.1 streamlines the entire process of instrument integration from capturing the instrument data, through data transformation to the import of results into LIMS. Once setup MIDAS runs automatically in the background and provides a seamless link between laboratory instruments and the LIMS. By avoiding tedious data transcription and manual manipulation of data, for example through the use of spreadsheets, errors are eliminated. MIDAS provides a defendable, robust, and effective methodology to ensure compliance with standards such as ISO17025 and GMP while freeing laboratory staff from mundane and low value tasks.

Autoscribe customers around the world including Swiss Precision Diagnostics (SPD) a leading supplier of home pregnancy and fertility/ ovulation tests use MIDAS to integrate their laboratory equipment. In a recent case study SPD described the reasons why they moved to Matrix Gemini LIMS and MIDAS, saying “MIDAS seamlessly connects our analytical instruments to the LIMS avoiding the misreporting of results through typographical errors”.

The MIDAS module is available for all Matrix Gemini LIMS customers. To enquire about using MIDAS in your system please contact Autoscribe Informatics today.
