Scientist monitoring app from mobile application

Monitor from anywhere

With Cellario Connect, you can monitor your system’s performance, recover from errors, and connect to your system devices via your phone or tablet. It’s a quick and easy way to stay productive

Learn more about the software that enables you go to mobile.

Easily view and understand what is occurring on Prime

Tired of watching a 3D model of your liquid handler? Want to know how your samples will really be handled? Use qualitative and quantitative analysis tools to ensure sample uniformity across your method.

Learn more about our liquid handling software.
LIMS DIagram

Integrate with whichever LIMS you use

Cellario, with its coupled API layers, is designed to support a wide range of upstream and downstream data integration requirements. It supports the use of external applications to generate orders by inserting records into the Cellario Oracle database via PL/SQL Stored Procedures API or a Web Services API Layer.

Learn more about integrating with LIMS.

Device drivers ready to go

HighRes software being demonstrated

Software is the key

The mastermind behind every laboratory automation system HighRes builds is Cellario, the world’s easiest-to-use lab automation software. We’ve worked hard to ensure that our software is the best in the industry, and once you’ve tried it, we think you’ll quickly agree.


We think software should accelerate your science, not impede it. We have designed Cellario to be an intuitive lab software package.

New operators are able to set up experiments using our lab software protocol designer, and run automated experiments in as little as one to two hours; those who are software-savvy are able to set up day-long runs in minutes.

With key features that enable lab experiment simulation, Cellario makes even our largest lab automation systems as easy to operate as our benchtop robot.

Cellario software application


Cellario’s intelligent, modular design makes it easy to customize to suit your processes

Integrate Cellario with your Laboratory Information Management Service (LIMS) or other internal software

We can create custom laboratory scheduling software for your more complex processes and assays (or lab data output capturing requirements)

Cellario software application


Unmatched error recovery and editing features

Total system power loss can be overcome in just a few clicks.

Device driver software detects and reports most errors on your system’s devices back to Cellario, which can then be configured to automatically react to them.

Cellario protocols can be modified on the fly, even in the middle of a run, using the Active Plate Editor Feature.

Mobile lab automation control

Control and monitor your system from a mobile device

Expand your capabilities

Designed as an extension of HighRes’ powerful Cellario instrument control software, this application communicates with your Cellario controlled lab automation system and allows you to control and monitor your lab automation system from a mobile device. Equipped with an extremely useful dashboard feature, Cellario Connect gives you instant access to key system control and operating parameters at a glance.


Fully compatible with both iPhone™ and Android™ devices, so you don’t have to be in the lab.

Schedule an assay, monitor the progress of an ongoing protocol or check to see if your latest assay is complete all at your fingertips on your mobile device.

Readily respond to urgent requests or improve the efficiency of your screening operations.

Key Features

  • Control automation system operations with a mobile device
  • Monitor the status of automation systems and devices remotely
  • Useful single screen dashboard style operation
  • Compatible with iPhone or Android devices
  • Automatically syncs with system control Cellario software


OS Compatibility iPhone or Android phone or tablet devices
Connectivity Requires network connection to Cellario system control software

The integration of Cellario™ system control software with a wide range of LIMS

We have assembled a secure set of APIs (Application Program Interface) through years of practice that allow Cellario to be integrated with whichever LIMS you may use.

Enjoy the benefits of LIMS integration.

With our wide range of features available through a flexible API, you can get the customization you desire without having to change your workflow.

Real time integration.

Share data freely between LIMS and the automation system operation software platform.

Reduce the time and resources required to manage the information integral to the operation of any organization using laboratory automation and LIMS.

User empowerment.

Quickly and easily migrate work from your LIMS to your laboratory automation system.

Eliminate tedious and error prone manual data manipulation that is often required for communication or synchronization between LIMS and laboratory automation systems.

Freedom of choice.

Exposes access to data over the two most commonly used Web Services Implementation Protocols: REST and SOAP services.

Gives you the freedom of choice and flexibility to choose your own path and simplifies the ability to access your data files without having to deal with Windows permissions and shares.
