WILMINGTON, Del.-- LabWare Holdings today announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire CompassRed, a visionary company in machine learning and predictive analytics. The acquisition of CompassRed will create a new dedicated advanced data analytics arm in LabWare®, embedding the CompassRed solution into the core LabWare platform, and providing services that will further elevate LabWare’s position as the global leader in the Laboratory Information Management market. 

Data Analytics Innovations Center

CompassRed will provide LabWare’s core data analytics platform as well as a services team to deliver new value and innovative solutions to market segments that both companies serve today. When combined with LabWare’s LIMS platform, the new Data Analytics Innovations Center will automate the analysis of data to address a range of important challenges. The Center will address these challenges by utilizing their advanced expertise in artificial intelligence and machine learning technology to automatically and continuously study data, discover patterns, build predictive models and create analytics solutions. 

The ability to provide these new innovative solutions, utilizing advanced predictive analytics as a part of a complete lab automation solution will have significant value and benefits for our clients, enabling them to be on the forefront of the rapidly evolving field of advanced data analytics.  Companies today have an overwhelming need to understand and gain insights from massive amounts of data that they collect. To meet this demand, CompassRed, as LabWare’s Data Analytics Innovation team, will help customers explore and operationalize the analysis, visualization and contextualization of their data sets. CompassRed’s team will establish the base for these innovations while continuing to develop and expand its existing client roster.

“As the global leader for LIMS and ELN, our business strategy has been centered on helping companies transform, automate, and service the modern-day laboratory,” said Vance Kershner, President and CEO, LabWare. “Data creates value, but that value is magnified dramatically when companies use new innovative practices and technology to process that data into forms of actionable knowledge that transform the way they do business. With this acquisition, LabWare will establish and possess a proven advanced data analytics innovation center that will allow us to accelerate how we help our customers capitalize on the explosive growth potential provided by this rich new resource.”

CompassRed, as LabWare’s Data Analytics Innovation team, will be one of the cornerstones of LabWare’s strategy going forward. Together, they will continue to deliver services and software solutions to provide LabWare’s and CompassRed ‘s existing and future customers with a wide range of products and services to maximize business value across multiple markets.
