Battelle Places Order with Instem for Provantis Preclinical and submit-SEND Software Solutions

Instem Solutions to Automate Full Range of R&D Processes

Instem Life Science Systems plc (AIM: INS.L), a leading provider of software applications to the global early development healthcare market, announced today that Battelle has purchased its Provantis® and submit™ preclinical software solutions to automate processes within its preclinical facilities.

Battelle is the world’s largest independent research and development organisation. Battelle’s health and life science capabilities support development, delivery, testing, and evaluation of innovative solutions for the biotech, pharmaceutical, and agrochemical industries and government agencies.

Provantis is a modern, fully integrated software system for single users and global organisations engaged in preclinical evaluation studies. Orchestrating every facet of preclinical drug safety assessment, Provantis streamlines processes and workflows with straightforward, intuitive functionality for simple or complex studies within a GLP or non-GLP environment, on-site or over the Web.

Part of the Centrus solution suite, Instem’s submit™ software supports the US food and Drug Administration (FDA) sponsored Standard for Exchange of Nonclinical Data (SEND) initiative. Submit is the only fully integrated solution in production today for companies using SEND for the exchange, review and submission of research data. Converting data from any source system into SEND files, submit allows sponsors, contract research organisations and regulators to share, visualise and analyse study data more efficiently.

Phil Reason, CEO of Instem, commented, “We are delighted to have secured this contract with Battelle, the world’s largest independent research and development organisation. This is a strong competitive win for Provantis and an excellent early win for our newly launched Centrus suite. We continue to win the majority of new business placed in the early development healthcare market and look to the future with confidence.”
