SALT LAKE CITY – Dec. 5, 2006 – MasterControl Inc. today announced that STI Medical Systems, a leader in developing advanced optical diagnostic imaging technology for cancer detection, has selected the MasterControl hosted solution to help ensure FDA compliance.

STI Medical Systems, based in Honolulu, is the maker of the HyperSpectral Diagnostic Imaging (HSDI®) device, which automatically captures and analyzes data that help detect, classify, and localize pre-cancerous and cancerous tissue.

The company, which is preparing to file a premarket notification (510K) with the FDA, looked at 15 software solutions before deciding on MasterControl, said Jodi Rappe, project manager and system administrator. ?We chose MasterControl for many reasons. It has all the aspects of document control that we were looking for; it is very user friendly, and the interface is nice and clear,? she said.

MasterControl's Application Server Provider (ASP) services offer all the advantages of the MasterControl quality management solution: robust functionality that helps facilitate regulatory compliance, connectivity that allows holistic quality management, and easy-to-use features that foster efficiency throughout the enterprise. MasterControl applications are deployed in a collocation environment with security, network, and maintenance capabilities that far exceed the typical customer environment. The hosted solution is ideal for companies concerned about the technical and financial demands of start-up and maintenance of in-house servers.

Rappe said her company expects to attain three things by choosing the MasterControl hosted solution: FDA compliance, efficiency, and cost savings.
