Accelerated Technology Laboratories, Inc. (ATL) and Institute for Biopharmaceutical Research (IBR, Inc.) Partner to Provide Pipette Calibration Solutions for GLP and GMP
News Aug 04, 2013
Accelerated Technology Laboratories, Inc. (ATL), a leading supplier of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), has announced a new partnership with Institute for Biopharmaceutical Research (IBR, Inc.) - a leader in turnkey calibration software.
ATL is the North American Partner for IBR and will be offering Check&Track v2.0 to GLP and GMP compliant laboratories. Check&Track v2.0 offers just-in-time management of certification and recordkeeping for pipettes, specific to ISO 9000, ISO 8655, DIN 12650 and NCCLS requirements. Key benefits of this technology include automatic collection of data from an RS232 balance, automatic calibration procedures (manufacturer specific and custom macros), guided data collection during calibration, online input for environmental parameters, automatic statistics and qualification according to the specifications of the manufacturer, complete pipette history, schedules for pipette’s calibration and balance service administration.
“ATL is excited for the opportunity to team up with IBR for tighter integration of our complementary products. They share our passion for automation and providing best-of-class tools, allowing customers to be more productive and efficient,” said Dr. Christine Paszko, ATL’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
“IBR is proud having found ATL as a highly professional partner for his software Check &Track and appreciates the fascinating collaboration dedicated to convert emerging needs in the quality managed laboratory to sophisticated products,” said Dr. René Moser, IBR’s CEO and CSO.
ATL and IBR are established leaders in their respective product categories, and provide solutions in many of the same industry sectors. The products developed by each company and their operational fields are complementary and offer tremendous synergies.
Algorithm Speeds Up Medical Image Analysis 1000 TimesNews
Medical image registration is a common technique that involves overlaying two images, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, to compare and analyze anatomical differences in great detail. Researchers have described a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.
Antarctic Worm and Machine Learning Help Identify Cerebral Palsy EarlierNews
A research team has released a study in the peer-reviewed journal BMC Bioinformatics showing that DNA methylation patterns in circulating blood cells can be used to help identify spastic cerebral palsy (CP) patients. The technique which makes use of machine learning, data science and even analysis of Antarctic worms, raises hopes for earlier targeted CP therapies.
Towards Personalized Medicine: One Type of Data is Not EnoughNews
To understand the biology of diseased organs researchers use different types of molecular data. One of the biggest computational challenges at the moment is integrating these multiple data types. A new computational method jointly analyses different types of molecular data and disentangles the sources of disease variability to guide personalized treatment.READ MORE
