Just as we have got used to saving photos on our computer hard drives or writing e-mails instead of writing on paper, so companies in the field of biosciences have incorporated IT solutions into their document management processes. By using these tools they can organize the information that they generate in a simple and efficient way as well as interpret the data obtained.
NorayBio is one of Spain’s leading companies in the design, commercialization and implementation of software in the field of bioscience. “Our main hallmark is our experience in the sector. The 10 years that we have been working with doctors, researchers, biologists and vets, among other professionals, have helped us to supplement our initial knowledge”, says Marta Acilu, business development manager.
Since its creation, NorayBio has developed more than a dozen standardized products. These applications enable information, which is not only generated by pharmaceutical companies but also by laboratories for basic and applied research, biobanks, fertility units and even animal research centers, to be managed and processed.
One of the company’s most successful areas is the development of customized software for managing data in biological banks. The software, called NorayBanks, deals with the processes of identifying and authenticating samples according to legally required regulatory standards.
The use of this type of information is regulated in every country, obligating companies to comply with rules about the quality, security and traceability of the data and biological samples stored in biobanks. These establishments usually house different types of biological material and information, from DNA to cancer biopsy samples, as well as tissue samples or hematological material.
The company has also developed Fivisoft, a specific solution for clinics and hospitals involved in assisted conception studies. This software facilitates the management and integration of all the data generated by human fertility treatments. It consists of a complete database that manages the clinical history of people involved in treatment, the information generated in the post-treatment follow-up and in monitoring the pregnancy, as well as the fertilization protocols applied to patients.
