Waters NuGenesis 8 with Lab Execution Technologies Improves IT Connection between Lab and Enterprise

NuGenesis 8 Reduces Laboratory Transcription Errors by up to 100%, Data Review Times by up to 75% for More Rapid Product Release

Orlando, Florida - March 12, 2012: Waters Corporation (WAT:NYSE) today introduced Waters® NuGenesis® 8 featuring LE (Laboratory Execution) Technologies, a comprehensive workflow and documentation solution that links organizations’ analytical laboratory data systems to their business information technology systems.

“Perhaps the biggest informatics challenge our customers face is seamlessly linking analytical data to enterprise-level information to facilitate business decisions,” said Mary Ellen Goffredo, Senior Director of Systems Marketing, Waters Division. “There are software products for every analytical instrument, for laboratory workflow, results visualization as well as general purpose spreadsheets and word processing software. We want to leverage the data from all those applications and integrate them with an enterprise level business system. However, with so many software applications and connection points, science-driven organizations lack the ability to collect, process, consolidate and distribute laboratory data freely and efficiently. NuGenesis 8 enables global scientific organizations to stay informed, standardize processes, and implement best practices across laboratories, across borders, and across continents. It means greater efficiency, easier compliance, and better-informed business decisions.”

Key to NuGenesis 8 is its newly developed LE Technology, a documentation and workflow solution that guides a laboratory analyst through routine standard operating procedures. An electronic worksheet steps them through the prescribed workflow, ensuring that they complete every step and verifying that all input meets established criteria. The completed task is submitted for approval and the results are automatically shared with business systems such as LIMS and ERP.

In addition to featuring LE Technology, NuGenesis 8 automatically captures and catalogs information from disparate sources and provides access to a suite of information management tools including sharing, reuse and sample management. Using NuGenesis Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN), laboratories can track, assign, and manage samples, tests, and results. The user-centric design revolves around both laboratory managers who seek metrics about the laboratory workload, as well as analysts who need a convenient overview of pending tasks and the status of in-process tests. The result is a more efficiently run laboratory.

With tens of thousands of licenses sold around the world, NuGenesis is helping leading pharmaceutical, chemical, food and beverage, and environmental companies gain a deeper insight into their scientific challenges, facilitate rapid decision-making, and achieve better business results faster.
