Körber and LabWare Pave Way MES-LIMS Integration

Körber and LabWare have announced a significant advancement in their partnership, achieving the “Ready” level required for LabWare to join Körber’s Ecosystem of partner companies. This collaboration reinforces the seamless integration capabilities between LabWare’s Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) and Körber’s Manufacturing Execution System (MES) – PAS-X.

Körber’s latest milestone follows the successful launch of the “PAS-X LIMS Integration” program, an innovative addition to the Körber Ecosystem designed to enhance customer convenience in identifying LIMS suppliers compatible with PAS-X MES. The program highlights Körber and its partners’ commitment to reducing the complexity and risk of integrating LIMS with PAS-X MES using a standardised interface.

LabWare, a trusted partner to most of the top 25 global pharmaceutical companies and a worldwide leader in laboratory informatics, brings profound expertise and operational excellence to this collaboration. Mark Gonzalez, Technical Director at LabWare, emphasised the extensive reach of LabWare’s LIMS, stating, “Our LIMS is used at more than 29,000 laboratories with more than 150,000 daily users and a billion samples tested a year.” As a certified partner, LabWare demonstrates seamless integration capabilities with PAS-X MES, providing enhanced value to customers.

Integrating MES and LIMS has become crucial to the digital transformation journey within the pharma and biopharma industry. Lars Hornung, Senior Principal Alliances & Technology Partners Software, Körber Business Area Pharma, explained the significance of this integration, stating, “Seamless integration between these systems is vital to streamlining processes and eliminating human error.” He provided an example of how PAS-X MES triggers sample requests to LIMS, facilitating efficient label printing and data exchange crucial for Quality Control (QC) purposes.
