Dotmatics, Bishop’s Stortford, UK, has formed a partnership with HighRes Biosolutions (HighRes), Beverly, Mass. The collaboration combines the high-throughput laboratory automation capability of Dotmatics’ electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) with HighRes’ Cellario instrument control software enabling R&D scientists to plan experiments, run individual instruments, and publish and analyze data within a single software interface. The integration will save researchers’ time and improve ease of operation as a further step toward the Lab of the Future (LoTF).

Having multiple interfaces for performing scientific research using automation and instruments can be complicated and time-consuming, increasing the risk of inaccuracies. By integrating instrument control and the ELN into one platform, the steps required by scientists to plan and produce data are reduced, thereby streamlining processes, enhancing compliance, and improving the overall user experience. Using Dotmatics’ platform as the central data hub to orchestrate instruments both on the HighRes robotics workstations as well as standalone instruments, researchers will be able to operate in a digitalized laboratory environment, using an integrated software to plan, conduct, and record experiments, with all data stored securely in the cloud.

“This collaboration is another exciting advancement of Dotmatics’ commitment to bring scientists a seamless digital lab experience,” says Stephen Gallagher, PhD, BSc, co-founder and chief executive officer, Dotmatics. “By integrating two industry leaders’ software, we are pleased to be able to offer a solution that streamlines workflows in a move towards the Lab of the Future.”

Dotmatics offers flexible ELN solutions to capture, store, and search experiments from all scientific disciplines, ensuring data is always secure and accessible across research teams. HighRes’ Cellario software is an easy-to-use laboratory scheduling system that allows users to control lab instruments and automation systems to set up and run experiments.For more information, visit Dotmatics and HighRes.
