AIMs TissueMetrix simplifies research applications
Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Inc. highlighted at HIMSS06 last week in San Diego its TissueMetrix Tissue Bank Management Software for Research Applications, a scalable system that lets researchers easily manage tissue banks of any size or complexity. It can be used for small special interest tissue banks, large volume institutional tissue banks, cross-institutional tissue banks, and centralized regional tissue catalogues. Medical research has seen giant leaps in the technology to analyze diseases and disorders at the molecular level. Tissue array technology permits hundreds of specimens to be analyzed simultaneously, while microarrays allow thousands of DNA sequences to be analyzed on a specimen for the study of gene expression, gene mapping and diagnostics. TissueMetrix allows users to manage sample inventory, integrate with hospital/laboratory systems, manage tissue arrays, record assay results, record and store images of samples, search the tissue bank for specific samples/donors, and more.
