LabVantage and InforSense Ally to Redefine Enterprise Laboratory Informatics

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2008) - Bio-IT World Conference & Expo --

--  Combined Solution Enables Federated Informatics
    Infrastructure for Enterprise Decision Support
--  Modular Driven Products Redefine "Configurable
    Off The Shelf" Enterprise Laboratory Informatics

LabVantage Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise solutions tailored for leading laboratories and InforSense Ltd., a leading provider of embedded enterprise intelligence, today announced an alliance to integrate the InforSense platform with LabVantage's flagship SAPPHIRE laboratory information management suite (LIMS) and for LabVantage to resell InforSense along with its SAPPHIRE LIMS.

"One of the key challenges that our customers face is how to integrate, analyze and visualize data from multiple data sources across their organization, including from SAPPHIRE, to support more efficient and effective decisions," stated Ronald Kasner, Vice President of Corporate Development for LabVantage. "SAPPHIRE's operational workflow and data management capabilities coupled with INFORSENSE's integration and analytics workflow capabilities offer customers a robust, yet flexible enterprise backbone for laboratory informatics -- what we refer to as federated informatics," he added.

By leveraging configurable-off-the-shelf (COTS), modular driven products, rather than custom developed software or services, LabVantage can tailor point specific or enterprise wide solutions to address each organization's unique needs. The combined SAPPHIRE and InforSense infrastructure leverages the modularity of both platforms to effectively aggregate, mine, and analyze data stored in SAPPHIRE and the SAPPHIRE modules coupled with data stored in other heterogeneous scientific and operational data sources, including in-house and proprietary R&D and manufacturing applications. Together, the platforms deliver a powerful and versatile laboratory informatics solution spanning discovery, development and manufacturing.

"LabVantage is a leading laboratory informatics player with pioneering vision and state-of-the-art technology and we are pleased to be working with them," said Dr. Jonathan Sheldon, CSO of InforSense. "InforSense's capabilities to flexibly integrate and analyze data and deliver powerful interactive web-based data visualization provides an incredible complement to LabVantage's enterprise LIMS. The combined solution sets new standards for laboratory data integration and decision making."

"We're excited to work with the leading enterprise workflow analytics company, and believe strongly in their people and technology," said Jim Aurelio, CEO & President of LabVantage. "With this alliance, LabVantage continues to redefine laboratory informatics and enable our customers to go beyond the world of traditional LIMS."

The SAPPHIRE BioBanking Solution will be the first to incorporate integrative analytics. Leveraging the BioBanking Module of SAPPHIRE, and the ClinicalSense Module of InforSense, LabVantage will couple the best of enterprise biorepository management with the best of translational research data integration and interactive analytics. LabVantage will feature ongoing demonstrations of its SAPPHIRE BioBanking Solution with Integrative Analytics at the Bio-IT World Congress and the Translational Research Symposiums in Boston late April and early May, respectively.
