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.”
Neural Computer Hears Like HumansNews
Modelling the human senses is an incredibly complex task. Our brains arrange cells into complex hierarchies that process information from our surroundings. Now, a group at MIT have created a model of the human auditory cortex that can hear sounds and music in the same way that humans do.READ MORE
Stable Beta-Amyloid Dimers Identified in Alzheimer’s BrainsNews
A recent study exploited state-of-the-art mass spectrometry to provide the first direct evidence of beta-amyloid dimers in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and points to the potential of these molecules as biomarkers. Beta-amyloid dimers may be the smallest pathological species that trigger Alzheimer’s disease.
Deceased Data: Should Your Online Remains Be Treated Like Physical Remains?News
In 2018, your death doesn't just leave behind a body. It leaves behind a huge online footprint - your digital remains. A new study asks whether these remains should be treated and respected as a corpse would, and whether museums may provide a blueprint for the preservation process.READ MORE
