Titian Software, HighRes Biosolutions Collaborate
News May 13, 2016
HighRes Biosolutions and Titian Software have worked closely to enable linkage of Titian’s market leading Mosaic™ sample management software with HighRes’ Cellario™ automation system control software. This close collaboration has resulted in the integration of Mosaic’s powerful inventory control and sample tracking with the potent laboratory automation capabilities of Cellario.
This collaborative effort closes a gap in compound management information flow by facilitating direct communication between Titian’s widely used Mosaic sample management system and Cellario’s dynamic scheduling software. The net result is to provide users with a seamless and much more efficient workflow. Titian’s new Cellario Fulfillment Module (CFM) interfaces with HighRes’ Cellario Order Broker™ (COB) to simplify the entire process of sample preparation, including lab ware placement, consumables loading, and liquid handling.
Ira Hoffman, Managing Director of HighRes Biosolutions declared: “We are excited to work with Titian on this development. We believe that this software integration that has resulted in the development of the Cellario Order Broker™ will allow our customers to focus on their business, and not the details of the integration between these two informatics platforms. This should result in significant time savings in translating the planned work into actual production with results – physical and logical – being reported and tracked in real time. The resulting Cellario Order Broker’s upfront order validation will ensure accurate, efficient, error-free processing from Mosaic orders.”
Edmund Wilson, CEO and Founder of Titian Software added: “By working together with HighRes, we have allowed their range of automation systems to be leveraged within Mosaic sample preparation workflows. We know that this collaboration will provide significant time savings and improve operational efficiency for our shared Compound Management customers. This capability gives the Compound Management user total visibility and traceability of their samples from initial compound request through to assay plate creation.”
Small imperfections in a wine glass or tiny creases in a contact lens can be tricky to make out, even in good light. In almost total darkness, images of such transparent features or objects are nearly impossible to decipher. But now, engineers at MIT have developed a technique that can reveal these “invisible” objects, in the dark.
For scientists wrestling with problems as diverse as containing superhot plasma in a fusion reactor, improving the accuracy of weather forecasts, or probing the unexplained dynamics of a distant galaxy, turbulence-spawning shear flow is a serious complicating factor. A new supercomputer-powered effort aims to make modelling shear far easier.
