Thermo Fisher Scientific Work with Canadian Fisheries

May 23 2008

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), the lead federal department responsible for Canada's fisheries resource, oceans and inland waters,
is to implement a purpose-built Thermo Scientific Nautilus LIMS to facilitate research, development and understanding of Canada's
three oceans, freshwaters and coastlines. It will be used in Science Sector laboratories across Canada, focusing initially on the National Aquatic Animal Health Program (NAAHP). After a five-year phased roll-out, more than 150 users operating out of 12 different laboratories located in seven facilities across Canada will be able to use the system.
The volume of data managed will vary from program to program, but will initially reach more than 100,000 discrete samples yearly, and this is expected to increase at a rate of approximately 25,000 samples per year. The DFO provides diagnostic services, test method development, regulatory research and expert scientific advice in collaboration with the Canadian Food inspection Agency.
"What an outstanding opportunity for Thermo Fisher Scientific to partner and work hand in hand with the Canadian government, in particular Fisheries and Oceans Canada, on their unique operations worldwide", says Greg Huelbig, Strategic Sales Executive for Thermo
Fisher Scientific. "The installation of Thermo Scientific Nautilus LIMS will greatly add to DFO's efficiencies and help them do their many
tasks with more confidence and reliability."
