Upgrade with Confidence to Help You Protect Your Lab's Data

Don't Let Your Computer Slow Down Your Science

As of January 2020, Microsoft will no longer support Windows 7. The time to complete the migration is now.

Security improvements are the main reason companies like yours are driving migration to Windows 10. Experience the peace of mind that comes with a more secure OS, and continued support from Microsoft, when you upgrade your system to Windows 10.

The move to Windows 10 is also an excellent first step toward modernizing your workstation software with minimal disruption and maximum benefit.

 

Here is why:

  • One of the simplest ways to safeguard your work is by keeping all the systems in your lab up to the state-of-the-art
  • Legacy systems use outdated technology and are more vulnerable to an attack. You want your data and devices protected against the most advanced malware, viruses, ransomware and hacking threats
  • You’re missing an opportunity to do more if you’re not using the advanced software capabilities in Analyst®, Analyst® TF or SCIEX OS Software

Upgrade With Confidence

SCIEX introduced Windows 10 support for Analyst Software and MultiQuant™ Software back in 2017 so you could benefit from latest security enhancements and improved system performance. Today, we can offer software upgrades, designed to run on Windows 10, for the entire software portfolio.

The upgrades help to make sure you have uninterrupted access to the software tools that are used for your daily analyses. In particular, the upgrades are crucial for the data acquisition software that powers the mass spectrometry systems. Installation of Windows 10 on an instrument acquisition computer that is running non-Windows 10 compatible SCIEX software will impact the ability of the instrument to function properly.

If you haven’t updated your OS yet, now is the perfect time. We make the path forward simple for you so you can modernize your lab workstations with no headache. Take advantage of our special upgrade programs as you migrate to Windows 10 >

Why Current Technology in the Lab is Vital for Your Business

Alerts asking you to update operating systems and computer software always seem to appear at the most inconvenient times. Maybe you just want to run that sample set first, or finish writing up that report. You probably tend to put off downloading the latest updates until the next day, week, or even month, right?

You are not alone. Around 40% of users do not always upgrade software when prompted. About one quarter say they need to see a prompt twice before upgrading software. Another quarter of customers do not clearly understand what software upgrades do and how they can benefit, according to a survey conducted by Skype.

Consequently, many users object to adopting new software technologies or upgrading their system. In fact, top reasons for not upgrading were:

 

Despite the reluctance, there are many good reasons for upgrading your laboratory system. We do not want you to miss out on all the benefits.

The Benefits of Upgrading Systems

It might seem like a good idea to delay downloading the next software version until the most convenient time, but failing to upgrade can leave you open to new security risks. It also means you’ll miss out on improved functionality. While having the latest updates is nice in general, the importance of having modern security and the most advanced functionality is of the utmost importance for a laboratory business.

The longer you run out-of-date workstation software in your laboratory, the more likely you are to be exposed to modern threats targeting apps, data, identities and infrastructures. Attackers are becoming more sophisticated and your data more vulnerable. The sooner you upgrade your software, the sooner you will have a chance to experience:

  • Faster sample turnaround time
  • Better quality of results
  • Ease of use and better laboratory integration
  • Lower maintenance costs and less downtime
  • Increased staff motivation
  • Improved system security

Top 5 reasons why you should not miss out:

Don't get left behind

Software that is not moving forward could be sliding backwards. Remember that your competition is probably upgrading. Be the leader.

New options available...

With an upgrade, new, innovative enhancement are added that are often based on your feedback, needs, and wishes

Advances in data security

Upgrades may have new security capabilities that will prevent you from lagging behind on security advances if old versions of software are retired

Return on financial investment...

Any good supplier want to see its customers thrive. Future products and platforms are meant to be sold to you, so the upgrades implemented can benefit you and your bottom line.

Technical and training support...

You might have become completely competent with your old software. A new upgrade could reconnect you with training and support from SCIEX, and potentially help you to uncover new, better systems and methods.
