Cancer Research Solutions

Integrated Laboratory Automation


Over the last few decades, innovations in cancer research have advanced at a rapid pace, with new targeted treatments and immunotherapies showing great promise in many patients. However, due to the heterogenous nature of the disease, therapy resistance – whether intrinsic or acquired – remains a huge challenge. Unlocking molecular mechanisms behind cancer evolution is key to breaking down resistance barriers and ultimately providing personalised combinational therapies to patients, allowing them to live longer, healthier lives.

Explore the Complexities of Cancer Hallmarks

Cancer hallmarks initially outlined over a decade ago describe the mechanisms acquired during tumor development and form the basis for ongoing research. We’re committed to helping you explore and unravel the complexities of interconnected hallmarks and turn those findings into promising anticancer strategies.

With a diverse range of solutions to accelerate your research, we help scientists study all aspects of cancer, from genomics to precision medicine and beyond.

The next big cancer breakthrough will begin with research. And that research can begin with you.

Cancer Genomics

Cancer genomics aims to understand the genetic basis by which tumors proliferate and evolve under selection by its microenvironment, the immune system, and therapeutic intervention. Identifying the genetic and epigenetic changes at the root of cancer has improved our understanding of its biology and lead to new methods of diagnosing and treating the disease.
