Clinical Diagnostic Equipment Powered by iAnywhere Solutions, PDS Research

2/4/2003 - PDS Research selected SQL Anywhere® Studio and Manage Anywhere StudioTM for use in its cardiopulmonary diagnostic equipment. PDS Research will leverage technology from iAnywhere Solutions to power its KoKo Link solution, which is provided to laboratories to test patient breathing capacity as part of clinical drug trials.

Our greatest challenges are handling extremely large amounts of data as part of the clinical drug studies and coordinating with widely dispersed laboratories in different countries, said Benjamin Baker, IT manager at PDS Research. We have been so impressed with the scalability and reliability of SQL Anywhere Studio that we are now standardizing our applications on it. In addition, Manage Anywhere Studio allows us to implement software upgrades and fix computer problems instantaneously rather than shipping computers and CDs around the world.

SQL Anywhere Studio and Manage Anywhere Studio are perfect complements, enabling companies to develop robust database-powered applications and then manage those solutions in the field, said Rob Veitch, director of business development at iAnywhere Solutions. PDS Research has designed a reliable, out-of-the-box solution that meets the unique needs of their non-technical end users.

KoKo Link is a complete, integrated solution that includes a diagnostic apparatus, a laptop computer and all of the necessary software enabling clinical trial laboratories to benefit from a sophisticated high-tech solution without requiring advanced computer knowledge. Patients breathe into a mouthpiece, which is connected to the laptop computer, to measure breathing capacity and speed. SQL Anywhere Studio then provides data management and enterprise synchronization capabilities to collect these test results and share the information with PDS Research headquarters. In addition, PDS Research leverages Manage Anywhere Studio to send software updates to the geographically distributed test laboratories as well as to provide remote help desk support to troubleshoot computer problems.
