How LabDroids assist scientists in maximizing creativity and intellectual productivity

LabDroids work 24x7 doing the tedious, yet critical benchwork only able to be done manually until now. Scientists now enjoy a new degree of freedom in devoting more time and more effort to creative work. Simply: LabDroid maximizes the efficiency of intellectual production.

Using LabDroids also broadens the scope of work. Scientists undertake work requiring standardization such as preclinical and clinical studies, biohazardous experiments involving pathogens, research requiring operational environments impossible for humans such as low oxygen or high/low temperature conditions, and large-scale experiments.


How LabDroids transform expert “skills” into “technology”

Life science experiments often rely on scientists' expert skills or tacit knowledge. This often causes experimental results to vary by scientist, as well as illustrates the challenge in passing on research expertise to the next generation scientists.

Experiment procedures are programmed into LabDroids to the millimeter or second. Experienced scientists create a digitized protocol to represent their skills and tacit knowledge. In short, their “skills” are turned into “technology” that is easier to pass on to others.


How LabDroids eliminate human error

LabDroid's' unparalleled reproducibility rates enable consistent experimental conditions that were impossible for humans to achieve until now. Many experiments have failed solely because of human inconsistency and error.

To illustrate, collecting only a specific part of a culture 6 seconds after the cell suspension is agitated must be done to inoculate cells evenly. Repeating such a procedure consistently is virtually impossible for humans.

Eliminating human error is possible only through automation.


How LabDroids provide optimal flexibility

Until now robot-performed experiments always combined a number of robots with specialized maneuvers. Changing an experiment design has always posed time-consuming difficulty, sometimes even requiring more robot purchases. Such a setup defies efficiency. What is worse, lab apparatus used by such robots requires a dedicated design.

By contrast, LabDroids accommodate the same peripheral equipment currently used in laboratories, and eliminate human error!

Drug discovery at 10% the cost

Cutting human time costs for tedious, routine tasks means that the
R&D costs of new drugs are now only 10% of those until now.
