Intuitive Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology Software

PDS’ Ascentos software is the only solution your laboratory needs to satisfy toxicologists’ and teratologists’ requirements for capture and compilation of developmental and reproductive toxicology study data. Unique presentation of data allows for rapid correlation of related parameters such as ossification and fetal weight. Scientists can access historical control data for fetal morphology evaluations, as well as all maternal and litter activities defined within the system (pup weights, organ weights, sexual maturation, etc.). Pre-study randomization can be performed with user-defined parameters, while flexible templates support both GLP- and non-GLP-compliant studies. And our software’s dynamic phase change feature simplifies reproductive phase management — PDS’ Ascentos software helps you do more than data.


Organized the Way Laboratories Work

  • Predefine activities (such as mating dates) or set up and populate activities in real time
  • Add and include/exclude animals in studies and reports with a few clicks
  • Designate activities, measurements and statistics for animal study phases

Intelligently Structured

  • Scientists can view related activity data within data entry screens
  • Software learns as you go, knowing what needs to be collected based on collected data
  • Powerful supervision and review tools, including the ability to flag data for later review

Uncomplicated Data Entry

  • Succinct entry, modification and deletion of new animals
  • Quickly define and modify fetus activities
  • Streamlined cesarean observation with customizable activity views
  • Faster processing of entire litters
  • Intuitive short-keys make for faster entry and navigation with fewer keystrokes
