Instem Presenting on Data Collection and Reporting - System Design Considerations

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA – August 30th , 2012 - - Instem, a leading provider of IT solutions to the global early development healthcare market, is pleased to announce that Instem's Reproductive Toxicology Product Manager, John Boycott, has been invited to present at the 40th Annual European Teratology Society (ETS) Meeting, taking place in Linz, Austria from 2nd – 5th September.

The European Teratology Society was created in 1971 to bring together European embryologists, reproductive toxicologists, paediatric pathologists, epidemiologists, and clinicians to focus on the causes and prevention of birth defects. Its objectives are to stimulate interest in and promote the exchange of ideas and information about the causes and prevention of adverse effects on reproduction and development.

The presentation forms part of the annual ETS Education Course which this year is entitled "Right Thinking – Right Answers!!: Study Data Analysis and Interpretation". The Education Course is aimed at both experienced Reproduction Toxicologists and those with an interest in developmental toxicology, and will focus on the variability and impact of data use and interpretation.

Instem's presentation, entitled "Data Collection and Reporting – System Design Considerations", will consider how the challenges presented by a range of different scientific Reproductive Toxicology Study Designs impact the need for flexible computerized data collection and reporting systems. It will also consider the need for varying presentation of study data, including numerous different statistical tests.

The scientific program of the 40th Anniversary ETS Conference reflects the opening of new and interesting fields in Developmental Teratology and Toxicology, and the introduction of new methodologies and applications in modern embryo toxicity studies. The ETS Conference will be held in conjunction with the European Networks of Teratology Information Services (ENTIS) Conference on August 31st-September 2nd. A satellite meeting by the European Society for Alternatives to Animal Testing (EUSAAT) follows from September 6th – 9th.
