Singapore: QPS Taiwan, a global preclinical toxicology services provider, has been selected to deploy Pristima Suite, which is Xybion's premier preclinical application. QPS will leverage Pristima Suite in a ‘Software as a Service' (SaaS) deployment model, supported by Xybion's Singapore data center and echnology services group.
Pristima is an end-to-end preclinical data management system that helps companies to reduce their preclinical operational costs while decreasing time-to-market for drug discovery. QPS Taiwan will be leveraging many key components of the preclinical software suite including the General Toxicology, Clinical Pathology, Necropsy, Pathology and SEND modules to capture, manage and report data from preclinical studies. Xybion will host the application in its Singapore data center.
Mr Carlos Frade, VP, preclinical R&D solutions, Xybion, said that, "QPS Taiwan selected the Software as a service model, which offers a less time consuming validation process and a more cost effective approach to achieve the required capabilities, maintenance, and support over the Internet. QPS Taiwan will leverage Xybion's Total Preclinical Solutions package to install, validate and deploy the most modern and most well-integrated data management suite on the market."
Dr Walter Bee, VP, head, global safety assessment and regulatory affairs, commented that, "QPS Taiwan's Center of Toxicology and Preclinical Sciences (CTPS) is one of the oldest and most experienced GLP laboratories in Asia. Our scientists combine training and experience from Europe, Japan, the USA and Asia in the unique environment of a first class Taiwanese laboratory. This software supports the organization, structure, and format of datasets in the Standard for Exchange of Non-Clinical Data (SEND) format for submission to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)."
Dr Pradip Banerjee, CEO, Xybion Corporation, commented that, "We are pleased to have QPS Taiwan as a client and look forward to assisting them in reaching their business goals. We are delighted that QPS Taiwan has decided to have Xybion host Pristima Suite in our data center. Many of our clients find SaaS delivery to be an efficient, scalable and cost effective alternative to an onsite installation."
