Blaze Systems Releases New Version of BlazeLink Universal Instrument Interfacing Middleware

February 21, 2014 . Newark, DE. Today Blaze Systems announced a new release of its BlazeLink instrument interfacing middleware to interface any instrument to any LIMS/ELN/SDMS. Enhancements include additional graphical parsing instructions to simplify even more the translations from various instrument dialogs into standard XML, and built-in support for additional output  fields to include supplemental values such as dilutions, MDL, and more.


Instrument interfacing has long been recognized as the low hanging fruit for a step change in laboratory effectiveness, often delivering 20-40% labor savings, eliminating a 1-3% transcription error rate, and reducing turn-around time with attendant enterprise benefits. BlazeLink is ideally positioned to deliver these benefits to laboratories by integrating any instrument, whether simple or complex, with any LIMS at the lowest cost per instrument in the industry. BlazeLink supports unidirectional or bi-directional operation, handling the entire integration task, including transport, translation, and data augmentation. BlazeLink usually operates in a fully automated and unattended mode, but may also provide an operator interface for data review and augmentation. BlazeLink is configurable for any data source or destination, employing tools such as a powerful visual parsing program including visual debugging, XML style sheets, comprehensive calculation processor, plug-ins for special protocols and web services access, and more.
