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 awards honor New England companies that have turned innovative ideas into successful, growing businesses. Past winners include Genzyme, iRobot, Staples, Green Mountain Coffee, and Ben & Jerry’s.
“HighRes Biosolutions is honored to be nominated for this award,” said Lou Guarracina, President and Co-founder of HighRes. “We started HighRes because we believed that our ideas and technology could accelerate the hunt for cures for many diseases. That we now count most of the big pharmas and major academic labs among our customers is really exciting. What’s even more exciting is that this is only the beginning for us as we continue expanding into new markets and developing new technologies.”
