Pipetting is slowing down scientists.
It’s standard procedure in wet labs worldwide. It’s also slow, inaccurate, boring, and causes repetitive strain injuries. Pipetting wastes precious bio lab talent and time.
Robots can help.
Robots are great at boring things, like washing our dishes and vacuuming our homes.  Current liquid handling robots are expensive luxuries. They should be as common as an appliance …a lab robot for everybody.
But most lab robots can’t see what they’re doing.
Those expensive robots can’t see when they’ve dropped something.  They’re also so difficult to use they need experts to program and operate them. Scientists get fed up, going back to the old way.
The result: slow science.
Breakthroughs require reproducible results that scale. Manual pipetting isn’t good at either.  Neither are automated solutions, except for the most expensive. We have plenty of scientists, but not enough breakthroughs.

That’s why we built aBioBot.

aBioBot is smart.
Our robot can see.  That means it can look over your lab bench, locate and identify what you put there, and pre-plan your protocol with minimal user input.
aBioBot is flexible.
Can’t decide between your Falcon or Eppendorf tubes? Use both. aBioBot can mix and match any gear you want to use.
aBioBot is reactive.
If aBioBot sees a pipette tip fall off, it stops.  Computer vision and an array of sensors lets aBioBot keep a close eye on things so you don’t have to.

We had a dream — a dream of a lab assistant that could eliminate the repetition and errors from bio procedures and protocols so more time would be spent on science.

Is that too much to ask?

It isn’t.  We are realizing this dream with a robotic lab assistant that offers:

  • Reproducible science
  • Easy use
  • Vision, sensing, and feedback
  • Open hardware, open API
  • To do the tedious lab work for you
    …so you can get back to science.
