Helps organizations involved in biomarker-based clinical and translational research to safely and effectively conduct externalized, science-driven collaborative studies.

BioFortis Inc. has introduced its Next Generation Biobanking software platform for biomarker-based clinical research.

It will help pharmaceutical, government and academic research centers involved in biomarker-based clinical and translational studies to safely and effectively conduct externalized, science-driven collaborative studies.

As biomarker-based clinical research has become more commonplace, organizations have looked to biobanks to help drive these studies.

However, this approach poses significant challenges to conventional biobanks and their software.

The Next Generation Biobanking software platform is designed to overcome these challenges by harmonizing biospecimen data with clinical and molecular data in a collaborative environment that emphasizes scientific insights, while ensuring security and compliance.

At the core of the Next Generation Biobanking software solution is the Labmatrix® platform.

Labmatrix goes beyond the sample-centric workflows of conventional biobanking software by integrating patient, clinical, specimen, genetic and molecular assay data, to deliver holistic views of studies.

Multi-level user access control ensures that all collaborators can work effectively while maintaining relevant privacy and regulatory compliance objectives.

Driving scientific insights is one of the key benefits of Next Generation Biobanking software. Mining the wealth of data across studies, searching for the patterns within, and discovering knowledge requires tools that augment the user's own expertise.

To meet that need, the Next Generation Biobanking software platform provides Qiagram®, the award-winning visual ad hoc query tool.

Qiagram puts powerful query and knowledge discovery tools in the hands of the individual researcher.

Users "draw" their questions, interactively creating sophisticated queries, without the need to program or struggle with complicated query builders.

Answers are presented in configurable visualizations and dashboard widgets that can be shared to generate cross-study, cross-site and cross-group knowledge.

"Based on experiences with many pharmaceutical companies and academic centers, we believe that our Next Generation Biobanking software bridges the gap between conventional biobanking software and the needs of biomarker-based clinical research," commented BioFortis CEO, Jian Wang, PhD, "We consider it critical to empower researchers to perform these kinds of studies and deliver safer and effective clinical outcomes."

The BioFortis Next Generation Biobanking software platform will be demonstrated at Booth #226 at the 2012 Clinical Business Expo, September 19-20, Boston, MA.

Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Insights into the Function of the Main Class of Drug Targets
About thirty percent of all medical drugs such as beta-blockers or antidepressants interact with certain types of cell surface proteins called G protein coupled receptors.
Visualizing a Cancer Drug Target at Atomic Resolution
Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers were able to view, in atomic detail, the binding of a potential small molecule drug to a key protein in cancer cells.
Honey’s Potential to Save Lives
The healing powers of honey have been known for thousands of years.
3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening
A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.
Cytoskeleton Crew
Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.
Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers
A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University.
