Automata LINQ

The solution to fully automating your lab, robotically and digitally

The robotic connection: LINQ Bench

The world’s first fully-automated lab bench that fits into the same space as a regular lab bench, while automating your workflows – end-to-end.

Automation that fits into your lab, no matter the size or shape

Adapt and scale your solution as your lab grows and evolves

Eliminate human error and unplanned downtime

The digital connection: LINQ Cloud

LINQ Cloud connects your physical and digital environments enabling your lab to realise it’s ambitions, now, and in the future.

Automate your SOP and data flows on a digital whiteboard

LINQ’s intuitive whiteboard-style interface mimics the way your people already work, making adoption and transition to LINQ seamless. Bridge the gap between online and offline development, problem-solving and ambition.

Quickly draft, visualise and adapt workflows as fast as the science moves.

Collaborate and monitor, wherever you are

LINQ Cloud creates a central source of truth for your lab in the cloud.

For in-house teams looking to make collaboration easier, or global operations that need to apply workflows consistently, LINQ Cloud can help you provide critical context, create repeatability, and maintain traceability – anywhere, all the time.

Customise your workflows with python nodes

LINQ Cloud provides the perfect balance between controlled access and design, and completely customisable nodes using Python.

Run the numbers

Unlock your potential

Increase in throughput, from 50-250 plates a day

Scale your lab’s throughput, while you deliver more data of better quality with open, integrated automation.

Unlock your People

Reduction in manual interactions

Eliminate repetitive manual steps and out-of-hours work. Your people are empowered to focus on what really matters with truly hands-free automation.

Unlock your space

Increase in throughput in the same space

Reap the rewards of lab automation today, without disrupting your current lab space or your existing staff.

Application of Automata LINQ


With benchtop automation, genomics labs are limited in their ability to scale, and risk errors and contamination.

At Automata, we believe that in order to usher in the coming genomics revolution, labs need to think about automation differently. They need to embrace open, integrated automation, allowing lab workers to enjoy full walkaway time by robotically and digitally connecting steps in genomics workflows.

Cell Biology

Automation is essential to allow cell biology labs to scale over the coming years. While many cell biology labs use automated instruments to eliminate manual tasks, such as plate handling, highly-trained lab technicians are still spending hours each day tending to these machines.

As a result, cell biology labs are limited in their ability to scale with most benchtop automation.
