The Biodesign Institute® at Arizona State University has reached an agreement with HighRes Biosolutions to automate DNA sample preparation of Nucleic Acid Programmable Protein Arrays (NAPPA) using a flexible dual NanoCell™ laboratory automation system. The dual NanoCell system was selected by Dr. Joshua LaBaer, director of the Institute’s Virginia G. Piper Center For Personalized Diagnostics, and will be installed at the NAPPA core facility within his Center at Tempe, Arizona. The system will enable the systematic and repeatable extraction of thousands of different constructs per week from the group’s extensive cDNA repository.
HighRes Biosolutions brings its robotics expertise to the world of exotic aquariums on a new episode of Animal Planet’s hit reality television series Tanked. The episode highlights the antics and excitement in designing, building, and deploying a one-of-a-kind robotic aquarium comprised of three tanks that together resemble one of HighRes’ laboratory automation systems.
The Smaller Business Association of New England (SBANE) announced that HighRes Biosolutions is a finalist for the 2012 New England Innovation Awards, which are sponsored in part by Mass High Tech and Boston Business Journal. HighRes is one of only 20 companies out of 268 nominees throughout New England to be selected.
HighRes Biosolutions was founded seven years ago with the aim of creating cutting-edge robotic systems, devices and consumables for life sciences research and drug discovery. The company has placed its patented flexible automated systems at numerous major pharmaceutical companies and academic research labs.
HighRes Biosolutions has announced the release of ACell, a brand new bench top laboratory automation system that is small and safe enough for the bench top, yet flexible enough to integrate with any of HighRes' world class storage devices, and easy enough to get up and running quickly.
ACell is small enough for typical benchtop integrations, and flexible enough for larger integrations on existing or new custom tables. ACell can even incorporate a MicroDock, HighRes' patented device docking station, allowing swapping of instruments (e.g., a reader or pipettor) almost instantly, without having to reteach the robot or position and reconnect instruments manually.
The Center for Genomic Science (CGS) of Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT@SEMM) based in Milan, Italy at the IFOM-IEO Campus has selected HighRes Biosolutions to supply a flexible NanoCell™ laboratory automation system. The NanoCell system will be installed in the Screening Unit of the Center and will be placed in a Biosafety Level 2+ (BSL2+) enclosure. It will automate genome-wide high-throughput and high-content siRNA screens to drive the collaborative research programs of the Center for Genomic Science of IIT@SEMM.
IRBM Science Park (Pomezia, Italy) has selected HighRes Biosolutions to supply a flexible NanoCell™ laboratory automation system. The NanoCell will be installed as IRBM updates its high-throughput screening infrastructure to support the Italian Chemical Collection and Screening Initiative, a collaboration with Italian state research institutions. The NanoCell system will automate biochemical and cell-based high-throughput screening (HTS) assays to support small-molecule drug discovery.
The David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT has selected HighRes Biosolutions to implement modular and flexible automation for its newly implemented screening facility. HighRes will provide The Koch Institute, which is revolutionizing the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of cancer, with two screening systems that will be linked using HighRes’ patented dockable cart-based automation platform. Investigators at the Koch Institute as well as other MIT affiliates will use the new systems for both genomic and biochemical approaches to fighting cancer with a particular interest in studying combination treatment synergies.
The Smaller Business Association of New England (SBANE) announced that HighRes Biosolutions is a finalist for the 2011 New England Innovation Awards, which are sponsored by Inc. Magazine and Mass High Tech. HighRes is one of only 20 companies out of 185 nominees throughout New England to be selected.
HighRes Biosolutions was founded six years ago with the aim of creating cutting-edge robotic systems, devices and consumables for life sciences research and drug discovery. The company has placed its patented flexible automated systems at numerous major pharmaceutical companies and academic research labs.
The Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has selected HighRes Biosolutions to automate the organization of NCI’s library of approximately 8 million of its biological samples that are stored at -80°C. HighRes’ automation will inventory and collate the existing library to enable storage by study and material type to facilitate specimen withdrawals for research activities. Biological specimen containers will be briefly processed at -20⁰C by state-of-the-art automated vision, identification, labeling, and tube-picking systems followed by a rapid return to their normal -80°C storage environment.
HighRes Biosolutions announced today that it has been awarded a $125,000 tax incentive by The Massachusetts Life Science Center in exchange for HighRes’ pledge to create at least ten new jobs in 2011. HighRes is one of only 30 companies in the Bay State to receive such an award.
The Center’s Life Sciences Tax Incentive Program is aimed at spurring growth in the state’s medical device, pharmaceutical and biotech firms. Jobs created as a result of the incentives must be maintained at least five years.
