Titian Software has launched version 4.0 of its Mosaic Sample Management software. Applications of version 4.0 are extended to the enterprise-wide management of biological samples and reagents in many different types of life science research organisations in industry and academia.
Mosaic 4.0 builds on the proven strengths of earlier versions, including modular scalability, advanced instrument integration, and comprehensive audit trail and genealogy tracking. In response to the specific requirements of biological sample management, the software incorporates enhanced modules for tracking manually-accessed stores and manual operations, such as hand pipetting, for smaller-scale operations. A built-in substance registration system handles the allocation of substance identifiers and the capture of substance metadata, and Mosaic can still seamlessly link to external registration systems if required.
For higher-throughput laboratories, Mosaic 4.0 builds on its workflow management capability and wide array of integration modules for automated stores, liquid handlers and other instruments. The new functionality makes version 4.0 well-suited to the management of clinical trial samples and reagents, therapeutic and anti-drug antibodies (ADA), cell lines and biobank samples – in addition to small molecule compounds.
