Instem to Present at Applied Pharmaceutical Software Conference

Presentations by Instem Industry Experts Ranging from SEND to Efficient Instrument Interfacing Techniques

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA – June 20, 2014 - -Instem, a leading provider of IT solutions to the global early development healthcare market, announced today that Vice President, Jennifer Feldmann and Senior Application Specialist, Joel Usansky will present at the Applied Pharmaceutical Software (APS) conference in Cambridge, MA on June 26th.

Ms. Feldmann’s presentation, Nonclinical Data and the FDA Guidance for Regulatory Submissions in Electronic Format: Leveraging SEND for CRO, Sponsor and Regulatory Data Exchange, will discuss how SEND can be turned into an opportunity to gain access to detailed data for all nonclinical studies conducted by an organization, and leverage that data to improve the drug development process. 

Ms. Feldmann said, “The release of the FDA’s draft guidance has caused SEND to pick up momentum more than ever before. I am happy to represent Instem at APS to educate the industry on SEND and to share solutions to the challenges contract research organizations and their sponsors will face when implementing the standard.” Instem is a key proponent of the SEND initiative and has been providing industry education and outreach to promote SEND while demonstrating its widely deployed submit solution suite.   

Mr. Usansky’s talk, Challenges and Opportunities for the Efficient Interfacing of Lab Instruments to LIMS, will discuss the different methods of transferring data to and from an instrument such as file interfaces, APIs and Web services, and the pros and cons of each technique.  

“APS is unique among conferences because it deals exclusively with the data systems and computerized technologies in use at pharmaceutical and biotech companies and their supporting contract research organizations,” commented Mr. Usansky. “I am thrilled to have been invited to speak and will take this opportunity to describe in detail the challenges of instrument interfacing and best practices for efficient and effective lab inter-system data exchange.”

The Applied Pharmaceutical Software conference is organized by the Boston Society, a non-profit organization founded in 2004 as a forum to facilitate education, training, discussion, and scientific activities in support of drug discovery, development and allied topics.
