Transatlantic CRO adopts common radio-labelled ADME platform
5 August 2010
A US/UK contract research laboratory is standardising on Debra 5.7.8, the latest release of LabLogic's drug metabolism LIMS, as a common platform for its radio-labelled ADME studies.
The company adopted Debra's sample pooling module in a previous release of the software, but also wanted to be able to clone a complete set of study data so that the metabolism and in-life parts could be isolated from each other, keeping the two distinct GLP studies separate and making them easier to monitor.
Debra 5.7.8 also has a feature that allows the CRO to pool some biological matrices by using a fixed weight or volume of sample rather than splitting off a percentage in the conventional manner.
Other enhancements include changes to the graphing module, in particular around the presentation of logarithmic time concentration curves and the display of some types of graph; and standardisation of isotope naming in the protocol definition by having a pick list from which isotopes are selected rather than allowing free text entry.
Huw Loaring, LabLogic's systems director, said: "It is good to see one of our key customers harmonising on the latest release of Debra, and we were happy to include a number of features that have helped them to do that."
"This is another example of how we work closely with our customers in order to help identify improvements that can increase efficiency and save time, and enhance the quality of the data that Debra provides."
