Autoscribe Informatics Appoints A Second LIMS Distributor in India


Autoscribe Informatics has appointed Bioscreen Instruments Pvt Ltd as distributor in India for the Matrix family of Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) products. Bioscreen, based in Chennai, is a leading distributor of Life Science & Biotech research equipment, laboratory automation supplies and software with over 50 staff in offices across India. They will be targeting customers in industries such as Pharmaceutical, Environmental, Food & Water Testing, Veterinary, Petrochemical and Large Biobanks (where they supply automated systems).

Bob Blunden, Director Australasia and Asia Pacific at Autoscribe Informatics, said: “India is a very large country and so it is appropriate to have more than one distributor with diverse focuses. Bioscreen‘s size, customer knowledge and software support capability are an excellent match with Autoscribe, allowing them to rapidly learn and support our Matrix Gemini LIMS to further grow our LIMS business in India. The configurability of Matrix provides opportunities in a wide range of markets, by allowing the LIMS solutions to be precisely tailored to the exact needs of individual laboratories, and even in multiple laboratories within a single organization.”

The comprehensive configuration tools built into Matrix Gemini allow genuine system configuration without the need for custom software coding. The tools use an intuitive visual workflow screen editor that utilizes visual drag and drop and point and click methods to add fields, list boxes etc., meaning that no programming skills are required. An unlimited number of screens can be created, modified and linked together. In this way, the LIMS can be designed quickly to exactly represent user requirements in terms of workflows, screen designs, menu designs, terminology, report designs and much more.

Mr Prabhakar, Director of Sales and Marketing at Bioscreen, said “Many of our customers are looking to move to more professional and functional systems to match the high-quality instrumentation and software that we currently provide. Matrix Gemini’s ability to be configured to the specific needs of our varied customer base in India makes it the ideal system for Bioscreen to market, install and support. We are proud to represent Autoscribe Informatics and Matrix Gemini LIMS.“
