Harvard Bioscience to Showcase Latest Innovations in Preclinical and Organoid Research at Society for Neuroscience Conference on November 12-15, 2023

November 6, 2023

Innovative solutions for academic, CRO, pharma and biotech customers

HOLLISTON, Mass., Nov. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harvard Bioscience, Inc. (Nasdaq: HBIO) today announced that it will be showcasing its latest product innovations at the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) conference from November 12-15, 2023, in Washington, D.C. Complementing an already extensive product line, the new innovations provide exciting new opportunities for advancing preclinical and organoid-focused research and therapy development by a broad range of customers.

The latest advancements from the Company’s Data Sciences International (DSI) preclinical business expand the reach of DSI’s industry-leading, GLP-compliant Ponemah™ preclinical data management platform. These advancements include DSI’s new SoHo™ implantable telemetry solution for small animal models and its VivaMARS™ high-capacity behavior monitoring system.

Integrated with the Ponemah platform, the SoHo implantable real-time 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. The SoHo solution is designed to support the customer’s business needs by reducing operating costs and test cycle times, enabling increased testing throughput.

The VivaMARS system combines the Company’s real-time high precision Panlab® activity monitoring technology with its Ponemah preclinical data management platform to create an integrated GLP-compliant solution. The system is ideally suited to meet the high throughput, automated neuropharmacology and neurotoxicology testing needs of CROs and pharma companies, in addition to longitudinal behavior studies carried out by leading research and academic institutes. For more information on the VivaMARS system, please visit the DSI website at https://www.datasci.com/products/behavior/vivamars-mobile-activity-rack-system.

From our Multi Channel Systems team, the Company will exhibit its first organoid-centric mesh Microelectrode Array (MEA). Expanding its recognized leadership position in in-vitro MEA products, the new mesh MEA system allows researchers to capture precise electrophysiology measurements from inside the organoid in real time. This new mesh MEA technology is designed for the emerging applications of organoids in research and discovery, safety pharmacology and toxicology. The Company will present early research results using this novel technology in neuroscience studies. For more information on our mesh MEA products and organoid research, please visit our website at https://www.harvardbioscience.com/applications/organoid-research.

Jim Green, Harvard Bioscience Chairman and CEO said, “These new product innovations reaffirm our commitment to driving fundamental advances in academic research and discovery while expanding our product lines to meet the needs of our industrial customers in CRO, pharma and biotech.”

Serge Savard, Harvard Bioscience Vice President of Product Management said, “With the integration of these new applications in a single data management platform, our Ponemah system provides neuroscience researchers with a powerful way of exploring combination studies of behavior, telemetry, and other modalities. And with the introduction of our organoid-centric mesh MEA, researchers can characterize and manipulate firing patterns from neuronal, cardiac and numerous other organ proxies.”
