Krishangi originally developed caTissue Plus, a free open-source biobanking LIMS/LIS heavily modeled after the National Cancer Institute's caLIMS product. Krishagni also offered fee-based support services for the free software.
In late July 2014, Krishangi revealed OpenSpecimen v1.0 as a rewrite of caTissue Plus, with the rewrite tentatively set to be complete by March 2015. The company stated on their website: "caTissue is a 10 year old code base. The design and architecture is old technology-based, difficult to maintain and add new featured [sic] on top of it."
For more information on the software, please see the OpenSpecimen LIMSwiki page.
