Lhasa Limited 51st ICGM

Last month, we held our 51st International Collaborative Group Meeting in Baltimore, USA. The event brought together Lhasa Limited members and staff to discuss Lhasa's software developments, scientific future and much more. Presentations from this event are now available to view on our website*.

*Some presentations may be restricted to members only.

ICGM Presentations

The Roll-Out of Setaria  

As part of the SOT 58th Annual Meeting and ToxExpo, and our 51st ICGM, we rolled out Setaria, our project-centric knowledge-searchable database for the storage of toxicity data.

Setaria is our most recent piece of software; it offers users an effective approach to managing impurity assessments under ICH M7 by centralising (Q)SAR prediction data and expert conclusions, and acting as a single point of truth for chemical entities within an organisation. In addition to aiding in regulatory compliance, Setaria also:

  • reduces duplication of effort within an organisation,
  • supports rapid data retrieval,
  • and supports export of relevant information in a format suitable for regulatory submission.
