Cedar Knolls, NJ (PRWEB) September 21, 2009
Xybion Medical Systems, a world leader in enterprise research solutions and the developer of Pristima™ the premier preclinical data management system on the market, is excited to announce the release of Pristima 6. This milestone release includes a host of improvements throughout the entire product suite and specifically introduces the Pristima Colony Management module to the toxicology community.
Pristima Colony Management fully integrates the toxicology laboratory teams with the animal husbandry unit, thus completing an electronic chain of custody and animal monitoring process that includes animal orders, animal shipments, non-study related health assessments and enforcing study readiness criteria before animals are assigned to any study. Pristima Colony Management also enables animals to be returned to the colony and assigned to a new study, building an individual animal's history of diagnoses across time.
Dr. Pradip Banerjee, Xybion's chief executive officer stated that "We are thrilled to build this unique and powerful functionality into Pristima. Until Pristima 6, there was no single solution on the market that could track an entire history of the animal's experience. This is also a perfect example where Xybion worked with the client community to develop a set of requirements, and then developed and released it in record time." Dr. Banerjee continued, "Pristima is the most flexible and feature-rich toxicology and pathology system on the market and the Colony module further extends its lead over competitive products. It is truly a game-changer for facilities that are seeking to improve their compliance and reduce the costs of managing the research process."
Pristima 6 arrives at a time when streamlining the research environment and reducing the use of animals in research testing is of utmost importance to organizations. Earlier this year the United States, European Union, Japan and Canada signed a memorandum of cooperation seeking to reduce the number of animals used in regulatory health and safety assessments. "Xybion has had a long history of helping our customers to support the efficacious use of animals in research." commented Carlos Frade, Vice President of Business Development for Xybion. "Pristima 6 crosses a new frontier in providing the management tools to support this effort."
