Aptia Systems developed Visual Specimen Manager in collaboration with M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and the National Cancer Institute. The tissue biorepository at M.D. Anderson had outgrown the capabilities of a standard spreadsheet inventory management system. Finding nothing suitable on the market, they turned to Aptia Systems for help.
In developing Visual Specimen Manager, our software developers considered several key factors: regulatory compliance, high availability, frequent access to samples by multiple users spread across a large facility, and the varying technical and computer application skill levels of the users. Taking this and other criteria into consideration, we developed a simple to use, web-based, relational database driven application that ensures regulatory compliance with password controls, an audit trail, and bar code capability.
Visual Specimen Manager meets the technical requirements of a compliant system under FDA's 21CFR Part 11, a regulation that covers any electronic system that manages regulated electronic records or uses electronic signatures.
