Our Customers

Explore how other labs automate with the OT-2

"I've done I don't know how many hundreds of minipreps in my life. I don't want to do another 3,000."

Nick Emery, DAMP of Boston University

"There’s two reasons we chose Opentrons: it’s affordable and we can develop open-source software for it."

Keoni Gandall, Free Genes Project

"I would just never be able to do as many samples by hand. I would probably lose my mind."

Kaja Wasik, Gencove

Why automate

Reproducible Methods

Easily replicate your results and share optimized protocols with lab automation.

Maximize Time

Reallocate lab time to data analysis, experiment design, and communicating results—NOT manual pipetting.

Replicate Protocols

Load & modify customer-verified protocols and let the robot run them, end-to-end.

Minimize Human Error

Robots don't get tired or distracted. Eliminate this source of error.
