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.
