Rochester, NY – March 23, 2011 – Bio-Optronics, Inc. will be exhibiting its line of clinical trial management system (CTMS) software at two industry events this month. The first event, CBI's 4th Annual Forum on Clinical Trial Management Systems in Philadelphia, PA, will take place March 24 to March 25. The second event is the Drug Information Association (DIA) EuroMeeting in Geneva, Switzerland, taking place March 28 to March 30.

"We are excited to showcase our clinical trial management software to the pharmaceutical and clinical research industries at CBI and DIA," said Dan Kerpelman, CEO at Bio-Optronics. "After establishing industry leadership with the Clinical Conductor Site CTMS system, we are showcasing our Clinical Conductor Enterprise CTMS to industry leaders at these two events. Together, these solutions provide unique differentiators for our customers, and are the most comprehensive, powerful tools for clinical trial management on the market today."

Site CTMS is the world's most intelligent system for clinical trial management. Built to meet specific industry and customer demands, this easy-to-use solution produces a series of benefits for trial sites, including a searchable patient database, automated financial processing and analysis, streamlined scheduling, and complete visibility of trial status and performance through one program.

"We initially selected Site CTMS because the pricing model made the system available for everyone in our organization that needed it," said Victor Homick, Chief Information Officer at the Clinical Research Center of Nevada. "But what we like the most about Site CTMS today is the flexibility to input as much or as little detail as we want. Competitive systems don't normally afford sites that same freedom."

Enterprise CTMS is the world's most collaborative clinical trial management system. It is the first and only portfolio-wide CTMS that provides for the unique needs of both the sponsor and CRO, giving both parties the opportunity for better, quicker decision making, while providing all trial players with a more cohesive environment in which to conduct their work and increased accountability. Along with the ability to review individual study and site performance, Enterprise CTMS provides the ability to analyze all studies and sites in a sponsor or CRO's portfolio.

“The ability of Enterprise CTMS to share information through portals for investigator sites and sponsors allows real-time information and document sharing," said Lorraine Ellis, President/CEO at Research Dynamics Consulting Group, Ltd. "This reduces the communication time and effort that CROs must expend to keep everyone informed during the trial. We have experienced a significant decrease in report preparation time due to the 24/7 availability of information for all clinical team members given to us by this system.”

CBI's 4th Annual Forum on Clinical Trial Management Systems features workshops and presentations on adopting, integrating, and managing different CTMS solutions. The DIA EuroMeeting brings together over 3,000 professionals from around the world, spanning the entire biopharmaceutical industry, to discuss emerging themes in drug development science.

Bio-Optronics, Inc. develops, deploys and operates software products and custom information technology solutions to help healthcare professionals manage and optimize workflow, thus enhancing quality, productivity, and patient and staff satisfaction. For 25 years, Bio-Optronics has demonstrated leadership in innovation, expertise in workflow and integration, and a focus on unparalleled customer service.
