Pristima VM

Pristima® VM is a recent addition to the Pristima product line, providing unsurpassed management capabilities for Animal Care and Use Committees, veterinary health, orders, billing, and clinical records for long term studies. Pristima VM can be run as a stand-alone application or as part of the Pristima solution to provide uninterrupted data management from the entrance of animals into a research facility to the submission of regulatory reports for safety testing.

As an enterprise system, Pristima and Pristima VM are designed to provide very fast, interactive response during data collection, unlimited multi-user system access with controlled data locking, fully-integrated online instrument interfaces and the ability to predefine and save customized report formats for later generation with selected studies. Through web interface technologies, these solutions can be hosted in one central location to support multiple facilities with access from a networked computer over the internet. Xybion offers a hosted “Software-as-a-Service” (SaaS) solution which provides superior technical support for our customers.
