We envision the biological laboratory as a construct of discrete, composable modules, much like a computer. We’re building the infrastructure – software, hardware and scientific protocol – to make this a reality. Our goal is simple: we want to significantly lower the barrier to entry for life sciences research by assembling the groundwork for a decentralized, software-driven, massively parallel world of research. Our dream is big. We not only want to bring biology into the digital age, we intend to create a revolution in science. Imagine a single scientist running their own fully-automated laboratory at low cost, performing millions of controlled, repeatable experiments per day without human error. We’re building that future.
