Instem present Comet Assay IV at NCDSER’s GeneTox event

Instem, a leading provider of  IT solutions to the global early development healthcare market, is pleased to announce that Mrs. Bing Li, Business Development Consultant, Instem, will present at the 2014 National Workshop on Non-clinical Safety Evaluation and Quality Management in Shanghai, November 27th – 29th.

The presentation,“Comet Assay IV and Systems for Genetic Toxicology” will discuss techniques for automating the collection and reporting of the comet assay and other genetic toxicology studies, including an overview and brief demonstration of the world-leadingComet Assay IV system developed by Perceptive Instruments, now a part of Instem.

The workshop, which has been organized by the National Shanghai Center for Drug Safety Evaluation and Research (NCDSER), will feature 3 full days of presentations, workshops and panel discussions. Instem is also proud to be the Gold Sponsor of this event.

Mr. Neil Donaldson, VP Sales, Europe & Asia said “We are extremely honored to have been invited to speak at this prestigious national meeting. Instem is firmly committed to supporting the growth of the preclinical R&D market within China and we recognize the importance that workshops such as this bring to the region.”

Instem was the first western toxicology/pathology software supplier to enter the Chinese market, deploying its initial China-based system in one of the largest and most advanced vivariums during 2006.  As the Chinese preclinical market continues to grow, Instem is leading the market with Instem solutions deployed at more sites within the region than any competing product.

Acknowledging analyst projections that the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is on pace to becoming the second largest pharmaceutical market in the world, Instem has an established full-service office in Shanghai and has localized the Provantis product suite into Mandarin Chinese.  Instem supports organizations serving the PRC through traditional on-site systems as well as through their SaaS delivery model from a secure, professionally managed data center based in Shanghai.
