About Us

We make robots for scientists


At Opentrons we believe that scientists should be able to focus on their science to accelerate discovery and innovation, and that access to automation is a key tool to facilitate that.


Our mission is to democratize access to laboratory robotics.


There are currently ten times the number of scientists to lab robots in the world. When we’re done, that ratio will be flipped, and there will be ten times the number of lab robots to scientists.
