PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The European Institute of Oncology (IEO), a Milan, Italy-based organization committed to making an active contribution to fighting cancer--particularly tumors of the breast, lung, prostate and bowel--has implemented a new laboratory information management system (LIMS) to more efficiently manage its biospecimen data. IEO is now using Thermo Scientific LIMS to process more than 4,000 biospecimens annually, including liquids, solids and DNA/RNA. Previously, IEO’s data management solution did not allow integration across multiple platforms, so information remained in silos or needed to be combined manually. Now, sample data is integrated across multiple systems including WHospital, a management system of medical records that contains demographic information, administrative episodes and patient informed consent; Armonia, which contains all diagnostic pathological results; and Banca Anagrafica Centrale (BAC), the IEO central registry.
