Symbion Systems, Inc. Announces Partnership With Labtronics, Inc. to Enable Spectroscopic Connectivity for LIMS

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 14, 2007 --Symbion Systems, Inc., a leader in providing analytical instrument control, analysis, and connectivity software, today announced a partnership with Labtronics, Inc., an industry leader in laboratory data integration and management solutions. Symbion and Labtronics will cooperate in offering integrated solutions combining the capabilities of Labtronics' LimsLink with those of Symbion's DX, RX, and LX product lines. The combination will provide customers with the advantages of LIMS integration and access to a spectroscopic data system capable of controlling virtually any spectrometer, while processing the large data arrays common to spectroscopy.

The Symbion family of products is designed to provide a standard software environment for analytical instrumentation that is both a language and a set of comprehensive, yet easy to use programs, covering all aspects of analysis, connectivity, compliance, and control.

Recognizing a range of customer needs for a robust solution to work in conjunction with the Symbion products, enabling LIMS connectivity for the various spectrometers and other analytical instruments, Symbion chose LimsLink, the most widely used and flexible instrument interfacing tool in the industry. With LimsLink, data can be easily collected and reported to LIMS, whether to acquire data from an instrument/instrument data system or to transfer information back and forth between the LIMS, the interface and the instrument.

Through their expertise and robust solutions, Symbion and Labtronics will provide a powerful data management and interfacing solution. The combined solutions will improve laboratory workflow and assure compliance with industry regulations such as 21 CFR Part 11.
