The main screen of ShipTrack for tracking shipment status

Rosetta Inpharmatics (of Merck & Co., Inc.,) has dozens of incoming and outgoing shipments of temperature-controlled biological samples. Tracking these and ensuring that they aren't delayed is essential to the business. Pixel Theory followed a user-centered design methodology to design, test, and create a database and web-based application. Rapid prototyping, HTML wireframes, and low-cost usability testing ensured that this product was built to match the users' expectations. This product was then updated and improved when part of Rosetta was acquired by Covance Genomics Laboratory.
