For biopharmaceutical companies looking to discover the next big breakthrough in the fight against cancer, automating their processes can literally be a matter of life and death. With billions of dollars being spent to research drug discovery, finding ways to more quickly automate research is a high priority. HighRes Biosolutions aims to help pharmaceutical and biotech companies automate laboratory operations in areas that include drug discovery, high-throughput genotyping, sequencing sample preparation, and molecular diagnostics.
Founded in 2004, the Beverly, Mass.-based company offers a modular and flexible docking station and workstation “pod” that allows scientists to swap testing devices in and out in about 30 seconds. This lets researchers deploy automated systems in their labs for multiple use cases by reconfiguring them quickly as needed. It also allows for optimization of equipment and lab space.
