Nautilus P1 Defect (All Versions)

I am writing to inform you of a Priority 1 defect that exists in Thermo Scientific™ Nautilus LIMS™ software. We classify a defect as “Priority 1” when the defect constitutes a safety or regulatory concern, derived from high severity and impact assessments.

Defect ID 124123 exists in all versions of Nautilus LIMS software:

The issue is that the seeded, out-of-box unit conversion expression between the ppb and ppm units is incorrectly configured as ppm/100. The correct unit conversion expression is ppm/1000. The issue would affect any results (specifically, the Formatted Result field in the Result table) that are converting from either ppb to ppm, or converting from ppm to ppb, unless the out-of-box unit expression previously was corrected by a LIMS user.

Likewise, if unit conversions between ppm and ppb were used for out-of-box amount tracking (via the Amount field in the Aliquot table), the associated amount calculations would be affected.

To correct the unit expression, open the Unit property page for the ppb unit (via the Environment/Units folder), change the Expression value to ppm/1000, and save the changes. Once corrected, the unit expression value will remain as configured, including after software upgrades.

Please contact Technical Support at support.informatics@thermofisher.com if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Kimberly Weldon, Ph.D.
Sr. Product Manager

Priority 1 (P1) defect SampleManager version 12.2. Defect ID 124032

Dear Customer,

I am writing to inform you of a Priority 1 (P1) defect that was introduced in Thermo ScientificTM SampleManager LIMSTM version 12.2.  Defects are classified as P1 when they constitute a potential safety or regulatory concern, assessed against our QMS Issue Classification Standard (QA-GS001).

The Defect ID is 124032, which encompasses three VGL file handling issues introduced as a result of the Unicode requirement in version 12.2.  However it is only the first scenario, described below, that is classified as a P1 defect:

The TRANSFER_BINARY_TO_SERVER VGL command corrupts the transferred file.  All other VGL file transfer commands are unaffected.  In the standard system this is only likely to be encountered when using components of type F.

The issue was identified through our professional services team where this VGL command was used within a services utility.  A code scan for use of the command in the standard system identified the issue would present itself when performing result entry for File type results through the client VGL result entry screens.  No customer or services personnel have yet reported encountering the P1 classified manifestation of the issue.

Defect ID 124032 has been resolved within the SampleManager LIMS 12.2 SP1 project, which is expected to be released in late 2019.  An informal patch is also going to be made available that could be applied to your 12.2 system should this issue affect you.

Please contact Technical Support at support.informatics@thermofisher.com should you have any questions or to request more information about the informal patch.

Sincerely,

Katie Evans, Senior Product Manager

Thermo Fisher™ Integration Manager™ software version 3.2 SP2

We are very pleased to announce the release of Thermo Fisher™ Integration Manager™ software version 3.2 SP2. Integration Manager software version 3.2 SP2 is a product health release providing bi-directional connectivity between cloud native solutions like Thermo Fisher™ Platform for Science™ software (version 6.0.1 and above) and on-premises instruments and systems.  With Integration Manager software, the Platform for Science software user can easily and securely send experiment data from the cloud to on-premises software like a chromatography data system (CDS) with the click of a button.  Once the chromatography testing is complete, Integration Manager software digitally transmits the results back to the Platform for Science software.  Integration Manager software maps the results directly to the appropriate experiments in the Platform for Science software.  By linking these systems, Integration Manager software minimizes data entry errors and boosts lab efficiency.

Integration Manager software version 3.2 SP2 is available to supported customers for download now from https://support.thermoinformatics.com/downloads/
