August 11, 2006 MILWAUKEE, WI USA - Mortara Instrument, Inc. announced today that Release 2 of the E-Scribe ECG Warehouse is now available for immediate use in the evaluation of annotated ECG data sets. Following the successful launch of the Mortara ECG Warehouse in September of 2005, more than 250,000 annotated ECGs have been collected in support of new drug applications. With Release 2, Mortara has added powerful new tools for sorting, ranking, and displaying ECG data for rapid identification of ECGs of interest.

The system is designed to be used by FDA reviewers to process ECG data with advanced tools and viewing technologies based upon Mortara’s E-Scribe Rx product and VERITAS™ ECG algorithms.
Release 2 is also immediately available to all pharmaceutical industry sponsors who have elected to use the Mortara ECG Warehouse prior to new drug application for dataset import and format validation; web-based query; and review of ECG data and VERITAS™ algorithmic scoring.
