ROCKVILLE, Md., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- BioReliance Corporation, a leading contract services organization for the biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical industries, announced today the launch of iNet, a proprietary information technology system that enables customers to submit test article details via controlled and secure Internet access from any location worldwide. In real-time, BioReliance clients can now view the status of current and past studies, keep informed of expected completion dates, download reports, and allow colleagues to view testing status-all in one online environment.
BioReliance developed iNet to simplify test article submissions and to promote instantaneous communications between clients and internal project managers. "As a result of these efforts," stated Tim Derrington, President and CEO of BioReliance, "our customers are now armed with a web-enabled application that offers a precise picture of their project's current and future status. We look forward to greatly expanding our iNet user base in the upcoming months and continuing to develop and integrate new technologies that will enhance our customers' service experiences with BioReliance."
Pavel Khrimian, Senior Project Manager, commented, "The response from our early-access iNet users has been very positive. Customers are using the projected lab initiation and report completion dates to facilitate their project planning efforts. In addition, the electronic template used for sample submission has simplified their paperwork, while making the entire process more timely and manageable."
Judith Apshago, Senior Director of Global IT, also added, "A lot of effort was placed into making iNet user-friendly, secure and compliant. As a result, preliminary users have navigated through the submission process with little difficulty. In addition, we have implemented multiple layers of security both on the front end and the back end to create an extremely secure online environment that validates users and ensures data integrity."
iNet is compliant with 21 CFR Part 11 for user authentication, and data exchange over the web is protected by use of Secured Sockets Layer certificates procured from VeriSign(R). It is also compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems.
The iNet application is available to US biologics testing customers upon request. This service will be available at a future date for studies conducted in the UK, as well as for viral clearance and toxicology clients.
