It is clear that companies and institutions in China are thinking about how to use advanced technology to dramatically improve the productivity of their research.

Freeslate, Inc., the leading provider of high throughput research solutions for biopharmaceutical development, today announced highlights from its Asia High Throughput Summit, held November 17, 2014 at Crystal Pharmatech in Suzhou, China. The meeting featured customer case studies and discussions of best practices in high throughput research and data management.

At this year’s Summit, academic and industry leaders in small molecule preformulation were brought together to share best practices for accelerating solubility, polymorph, crystallization, and co-crystal screens. Discussions focused on ways that science and technology can increase the productivity of R&D organizations.

As the first Freeslate Summit held in China, a key focus was discussions surrounding how laboratory automation can solve the day-to-day challenges researchers face. The Summit consisted of formal case-study presentations highlighting examples of Freeslate products and their ability to achieve dramatic innovation and rapid return on investment. A tour of Crystal Pharmatech’s facility allowed attendees to see automation tools at work and discuss specific implementation with scientists and technicians. Networking between sessions offered attendees opportunities for one-on-one discussions and to exchange new strategies and ideas.

“It is great to see the excitement and engagement around using automated systems to support the drug development process,” said John S. Senaldi, President and CEO of Freeslate. “It is clear that companies and institutions in China are thinking about how to use advanced technology to dramatically improve the productivity of their research.”

Based on the Freeslate Core Module 3 and CM Protégé automation platforms, Freeslate offers automation solutions for biologics formulation, small molecule preformulation, and process chemistry, all linked to a powerful data management suite for getting the most out of the data generated.
