Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched software to help share image data in materials science research.

According to the company, its Athena Software can make it possible for experiment data from multiple imaging instruments to be accessed at every step of a workflow, remotely and in the lab, improving collaboration among researchers from multiple locations and organizations.

‘As advancements in scientific imaging enable more complex experiments, the growing volumes of data collected can be difficult to manage,’ the company said. ‘Elaborate post-processing steps are often difficult to adjust or replicate for current and future experiments.’

‘By providing full workflow traceability and reinforcing collaboration, our Athena platform will help maximize the impact of scientific breakthroughs and provide a solid foundation for future research,’ said Albine Roy-Contancin, VP at Thermo Fisher.
