LONDON, UK (9 August 2012): Titian Software’s renowned Mosaic™ sample management software provides a fully readable and comprehensive audit trail. Mosaic’s audit trail provides traceability and accountability for each sample ensuring absolute user confidence. Mosaic efficiently tracks and monitors compound and biological collections, reagents and standards within any sample storage or handling system. Chosen by 13 of the top 20 bio-pharma companies, Mosaic streamlines sample management processes in large and smaller-scale operations alike.
The software provides a thorough sample inventory, together with a full chain of custody, which can facilitate 21 CFR, part 11 compliance. Mosaic’s comprehensive audit trail automatically records changes in the storage location, substance contained, amount, concentration, thaw counts and all preparation steps, enabling the history of every sample to be easily tracked and reviewed. Simultaneously a wide range of reports on operational performance are generated including throughput, turnaround time, stock and restock metrics and specific machine utilisation.
Edmund Wilson, Titian’s CEO, commented, “Drug discovery and development programmes need to ensure that the data generated is the result of high quality research, and of course the same is true of academic research programmes as well. If sample tracking and inventory are not reported accurately, this could affect not only the reliability and reproducibility of the research, but also compliance to industry standards. At Titian, we fully understand the importance of meeting these standards, which is why Mosaic offers a comprehensive audit trail, so users know the exact path their samples have followed en route to their study.”
Mosaic has been developed by a team of sample management and laboratory automation experts who really understand sample management processes, giving a truly user-oriented, flexible solution. Titian Software’s dedicated team of Applications Consultants have extensive, practical sample management experience gained from many years in the industry, and work with customers to specify the system configuration that best meets their needs.
