LONDON, UK (15 June 2012): Leading sample management software provider, Titian Software, has announced three orders in China for its Mosaic™ sample management software, significantly increasing Mosaic’s footprint in the Far East. The orders have come from the research facilities in Shanghai of two major pharmaceutical companies, and at the R&D base in Nanjing of a contract research organization. Software installations will take place from mid-2012.
Explaining the significance of the Chinese deals, Edmund Wilson, Titian’s CEO, said: “Mosaic is used widely in pharma and biotech companies in Europe and the US to control and monitor all aspects of sample management, whether enterprise-wide or single-site. These new deals in China represent a major expansion for us in this region, and show that, irrespective of where the research and development is conducted, Mosaic is the reliable and cost-effective sample management solution.” Mosaic is also used by academic and government-funded research centres, and in the Far East the software has been successfully used for over 18 months at the Experimental Therapeutics Centre in Singapore.
