Why You Should Automate Your Laboratory

Life science laboratories are filled with high-knowledge staff members who perform complex actions that rely on human intuition, dexterity and an expert knowledge of equipment and science. Automation tools have revolutionized the day to day operation of laboratories since the introduction of early liquid handling devices and adoption of high density labware formats. But moving […]

Automation That Delivers Seamless Data Handling for Scientific Discovery

Imagine a lab environment where automation generates raw data, processes it, and outputs exactly what you need so that you can focus your efforts on science. The system can actually make decisions in real-time and continuously refine experiments. Today, the inherent complexity in these types of systems can be streamlined and software can come to the rescue, freeing the scientist from mundane repetitive tasks.  Simplifying the laboratory experience has been a goal for TetraScience and HighRes Biosolutions, and the latest […]

Liquid Handler Design for High-Density Plate Formats

The push to higher density plate formats in biopharma research has been underway for quite some time, as it is seen as a principle means of reducing the costs of experimentation through higher unit throughput per time slice, and lower reagent volumes per data point. While automated liquid handling technology widely handles 96-well plates with […]

Laboratory Automation Predictions for 2019

Another year is almost in the books, so we thought it would be interesting to lay out some of our expectations for the year ahead. Enjoy! Robotics and automation business cases will be less and less about labor cost savings, and more and more about other benefits such as precision, repeatability and data capture. Labor […]

Toward the Unification of Laboratory Software Platforms

Scientists are all too familiar with the issues of proliferation of software platforms in their work environments.  Most laboratory devices have their own software packages and interfaces, and the lab as a whole typically runs a variety of additional platforms from lab notebooks, to sample management packages to data analysis software.  In a world in […]

In Memory of Lou Guarracina

Last week, we lost a friend, colleague and source of perpetual inspiration in a tragic and untimely accident.  While he leaves behind friends and family who will miss and mourn him, the passing of HighRes’s founder and Chief Technology Officer Lou Guarracina is also a substantial loss for life science research more generally, where his […]
