Harvard Bioscience to Showcase Latest Solutions for Preclinical and Organoid Applications at Society of Toxicology Meeting

Solutions for CROs, pharma and biotechs improve throughput and efficiency and enable future advancements in data analytics

HOLLISTON, Mass., March 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harvard Bioscience, Inc. (Nasdaq: HBIO) today announced that it will be showcasing its latest product innovations at the Society of Toxicology (SOT) conference from March 11-13, 2024, in Salt Lake City. Complementing an already extensive product line, the new innovations provide exciting new opportunities for advancing preclinical and organoid-focused therapy development.

DSI™ Ponemah™ Data Management Platform Provides Integrated Preclinical Solution

The Company’s industry-leading GLP-compliant Ponemah™ preclinical data management platform now includes integrations with the new SoHo™ implantable telemetry solution and the VivaMARS™ high-capacity behavior monitoring system.

By integrating these new applications in a single data management platform, the Ponemah system provides users with a powerful tool for managing and analyzing data across a range of studies. The integrated platform also opens new opportunities for the use of emerging machine learning-based algorithms to efficiently analyze large data pools.

SoHo™ Implantable Real-Time Telemetry for Small Animal Models

Together with the Ponemah platform, the SoHo telemetry solution enables researchers to collect, manage, analyze and report findings from multiple concurrent small animal models in a more natural shared housing environment. In addition, the SoHo solution allows data to be collected over longer time periods and opens exciting new opportunities for longitudinal studies. SoHo supports the customer’s business needs by reducing operating costs and test cycle times, enabling increased testing throughput.
