Under the terms of the agreement, HighRes Biosolutions will market Redd&Whyte’s Preddator range in North America. The versatile Preddator, which can dispense viscous liquids including gels, cell suspensions and DMSO in any microplate format from 96-3456 wells, will be integrated into HighRes’ patented MicroDock technology. This will allow scientists to easily add and remove the Preddator from HighRes’ automated assay preparation and screening systems.
Redd&Whyte chose HighRes to market its equipment in North America because the firm is respected for its modular design of versatile laboratory automation and specialist knowledge of integrating state-of-the-art liquid handlers into their systems. HighRes also has a large network of life science specialists across the USA, who will provide further information on integrated solutions that include the Preddator system.

Poole added: “HighRes is a first-rate company, with an excellent reputation for its versatile approach to integrating only the best low-volume liquid handlers into their systems. Our unique, flexible low-volume microplate dispensing technology will perfectly complement the products HighRes provides so we’re excited to have them offering Preddator as part of their portfolio.”
