Mosaic Assay Requesting Module Increases Assay Efficiency, Saving Time and Cost

New module for Titian Software’s leading sample management software will minimize the use of assay resources.

Titian Software has announced that it will be introducing Mosaic Assay Requesting - a major new module that integrates fully with the highly regarded Mosaic sample management software suite. By providing requestors with a very simple user interface and consolidating requests throughout the organization, Mosaic Assay Requesting generates major time-savings, improves assay platform efficiency and minimizes waste of reagents and consumables. Assay Requesting will be available in September 2014 with the release of Mosaic 6.0.

With Mosaic’s Assay Requesting module, assay preparation details, such as dilution concentrations, delivery form (neat/solution), volumes and plate layout, need only be entered once. Requestors can then select assays in a few clicks, without having to input these parameters.

Mosaic then checks that there is sufficient sample in the organization’s distributed inventory, and informs the requestor immediately if the assay can be performed or not. For each sample, Mosaic Assay Requesting also alerts requestors if an assay has been requested previously for the same sample, thus avoiding wasteful duplication of the assay run which minimizes usage of valuable sample, reagents and consumables.

Mosaic Assay Requesting aggregates all assay requests and provides a summary view for the sample bank operator, who can then decide to consolidate samples requested for the same assay onto the same plates. This ensures that the assay platforms are working on complete plates as often as possible, maximizing the efficient use of assay platforms and consumables.

Edmund Wilson, Titian’s CEO commented: “We have worked with a multinational pharmaceutical customer on the development of Mosaic Assay Requesting and the first installation is already delivering workflow improvements. When we presented Assay Requesting at our recent User Group Meeting it was received with great enthusiasm by customers, who recognized the efficiencies and cost-savings that it would bring. It is a significant development for Mosaic, and with the formal launch approaching, we invite customers and interested parties to see how Mosaic Assay Requesting can enhance their overall sample and assay management”.

The Assay Requesting module will be available for new and existing Mosaic customers in September 2014 as an optional addition to the Mosaic 6.0 release.

Mosaic is a comprehensive, modular software suite that controls and monitors all aspects of sample storage and preparation. These include sample inventory tracking and ordering, workflow management, control of third party robotic equipment such as automated stores and liquid handlers, and integration with existing IT systems. From small biotech and academic research facilities to global pharma, Mosaic helps to provide a seamless, error-free sample supply chain.
