Toxicology Research Laboratory Chooses Instem Software Solutions

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Instem, a leading provider of IT solutions to the global early development healthcare market, announced today that Toxicology Research Laboratory (TRL) has purchased the Provantis® software suite for managing their preclinical studies, along with the submit™ solution suite to support CDISC’s Standard for Exchange of Nonclinical Data (SEND).

TRL is a GLP operated, AAALAC International accredited facility located within the University of Illinois at Chicago. TRL has conducted many preclinical toxicology programs on potential therapeutic agents and other chemicals. Organizations such as the National Cancer Institute, the World Health Organization, the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command, and several biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and agricultural companies utilize the expertise and commitment of the interdisciplinary TRL team.

TRL selected Provantis to replace their existing preclinical software with a more modern, robust and efficient integrated system that would also deliver improved regulatory reporting capabilities.

TRL’s selection of Instem’s submit solution suite will allow them to fully support CDISC’s SEND initiative. SEND defines the organization, structure, and format of standard nonclinical tabulation datasets and enables more efficient review of study data while helping to improve data quality, accessibility and predictability. Submit will enable TRL to convert data from any source system into SEND files, allowing them to share, visualize and analyze study data with their sponsors and regulators more efficiently.
