LabLogic Systems, a leading Sheffield-based manufacturer of scientific equipment and software, has agreed a significant deal with one of the world’s largest radiopharmaceutical manufacturers, SOFIE Inc., to install LabLogic’s PETra software.

Positive Emission Tomography (PET) is an established and rapidly developing medical imaging technique, which uses a radioactive pharmaceutical combined with a PET/CT scanner to provide diagnosis of many life-threatening conditions, including cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

SOFIE Inc. has 16 radiopharmacy sites across the USA and serves over 425,000 patients and over 700 clinical practices each year.

Chief Technology Officer at SOFIE Inc., Melissa Moore, said: “We are looking forward to streamlining our manufacturing and QC processes by rolling out PETra and believe that the partnership with LabLogic will have us well prepared.”

LabLogic’s PETra Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) software is a market leading product, with sites all across the world using the product. Last year the company held a user group in Vienna with 45 customers in attendance from 15 different countries.

Richard Brown, Managing Director at LabLogic, said: “We are pleased to secure a deal with such a key player in the industry. Following over 10 years of development and after successful implementations at some of the world’s leading facilities, I’m extremely confident that PETra will be a huge success.

“LabLogic is a proud Yorkshire company who look to put Sheffield on the map as we implement our products around the world. We strongly believe in recruiting local talent, we have a great relationship with local universities and we try to give back to the local community as much as possible. In August we managed to hit our fundraising target of £10,000 for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital, which we are extremely proud of.”

The deal follows another successful year for LabLogic, which was recently recognised nationally, as the company placed in the top 3 of The Sunday Times’ ‘Profit Track Ones to Watch 2018’ list. The list consists of companies who have shown good profit growth previously and are set to grow rapidly in the future.
