right when the research industry needs improved solutions to work smarter, streamlined access to and analysis of critical data, and a conduit to overall research cost reduction.
Cedar Knolls, NJ (PRWEB) September 10, 2009
Xybion Medical Systems, a world leader in preclinical data management solutions and the developer of Pristima™ the premier preclinical solution on the market, announced today the expansion of its portfolio of software tools to manage critical medical research information through a strategic partnership with Locus Technology, Inc.
"We listened to our customers and the medical research community as they told us that they need a single source to provide research facility and preclinical study management," remarked Dr. Pradip Banerjee, Xybion's chief executive officer. "After meeting with the leaders in the industry and looking at the commercial products in use in research facilities, we are confident that Locus Technology has done the best job of developing a comprehensive solution for IACUC management, animal colony management, transgenic breeding, census, and health care management in their new LabTracks™ system. The integration points between LabTracks and Pristima outperform any product on the market today. There is no doubt that a single solution will allow our customers to optimize their work processes and comprehensively manage their animal facilities and research studies."
Xybion has delivered high quality, regulatory compliant software solutions to leaders in the pharmaceutical, contract research (CRO), chemical, and cosmetics industries for over 30 years. Their primary products have allowed facilities to manage toxicology and pathology research studies, and have more recently broadened to meet the needs of the general preclinical research market as well. Locus Technology has likewise delivered animal facility and colony management solutions to academic, government, medical device, research hospitals and pharmaceutical companies for more than a decade.
"Our two companies' customer service philosophies, development strategies, and focus on developing GLP compliant systems are so complimentary" commented David Larkins, president of Locus Technology. "It is like a great idea that has been waiting for the right time to happen. That time is now," Larkins continued, "right when the research industry needs improved solutions to work smarter, streamlined access to and analysis of critical data, and a conduit to overall research cost reduction."
The two companies are initially working collaboratively to provide a seamless interface for single sign on and sharing of data between the products with access to the full suite of products through the Pristima™ Portal. The LabTracks™ system is also available through Xybion as a fully supported product for their current customers and prospective customers.
