Cirdan – A member of ECHAlliance is a leading provider of innovative software and imaging solutions that enhance and speed up the diagnosis of patients. Headquartered in the UK, with offices in Canada and Australia, Cirdan is recognised as one of the leading suppliers of Laboratory Information Systems (LIS) worldwide and one of the fastest growing UK LIS providers. Cirdan’s solutions are deployed in numerous public and private healthcare organisations throughout the world and they are currently helping to increase efficiency and streamline operations in over 70 clinical laboratories across six continents.

Cirdan is now delighted to announce the award of a contract by Eurofins Pathology for a new generation Laboratory Information System (LIS). Eurofins Pathology is part of the wider Eurofins Scientific Group, a global leader in life sciences testing, with a presence in 47 countries, providing a unique range of analytical testing services to clients across multiple industries.

The contract is for the provision and deployment of Cirdan’s cloud-based LIS product, ULTRA Cloud. ULTRA Cloud, which will be hosted on an Azure platform, will support operation of the organisation’s histology division, Eurofins Pathology, in Ireland. Cirdan will also provide support to Eurofins Pathology for the term of the contract, 3-years initially, under Cirdan’s ULTRA Managed Cloud service. 

Andy Bleaden, ECHAlliance Director for Ecosystems and Membership said

“When I met with Cirdan at our Northern Ireland Ecosystem earlier this autumn I was really impressed with both the company and the Cloud platform that is winning contracts and awards. Their ULTRA Managed Cloud service is one that has many uses across healthcare and we think is a scalable model that can work across our Ecosystems and as can be seen here across borders”

This contract award comes at a time when Cirdan is seeing an increased interest in cloud-based LIS products from both private and public healthcare organisations across the globe. Government approval and guidance issued by organisations such as NHS Digital in the UK have made a real difference to confidence and interest in the Cloud.

Speaking about the contract award, John O’Sullivan, Regional Director Ireland & UK at Eurofins Clinical Diagnostics said:

“Eurofins Pathology looked at various LIS options before choosing Cirdan’s ULTRA Cloud product. We were attracted by the benefits of a cloud hosted LIS, in particular the ease of deployment and increased security and resilience. Our histology operation in Ireland is constantly growing, so confidence that Cirdan’s application can support this growth is very important.”

“We are looking forward to working with Cirdan to ensure the successful adoption of Cirdan’s ULTRA Cloud LIS and are excited about how the product will assist us in streamlining our histology processes, helping Eurofins Pathology to deliver an even more efficient and secure service to our clients.”

Cirdan’s Head of Commercial Operations, Jackie Devine commented:

“We are thrilled that Eurofins Pathology has selected ULTRA Cloud as their LIS. We are excited to have the opportunity to work in partnership with such a forward-thinking organisation and hope that the services that we will deliver via the ULTRA Managed Cloud service will future-proof Eurofins Pathology’s laboratory processes and enable Eurofins Pathology to enhance the level of service it can provide to its clients.”
