Automation for all
Born from a world-leading research lab, Automata is making total workflow automation accessible to labs frustrated by the limitations of their own environment.
Accelerating the innovation evolution
When two architects from Zaha Hadid’s research lab first approached robotics, their idea was to explore applications specific to architectural engineering.
But they soon discovered that modern automation wasn’t just unnecessarily complex – it was actively restricting innovation. And not just within their industry – within many others too. It was clear that robotic automation was a field where their combined experience in computational research and design could make a real difference. Assembling a team of industry experts, Automata was founded, with a clear aim: to enable new opportunities for innovation with automation.
A clearer path to progress
Automata’s focus narrowed on an industry where they felt their expertise could have the most impact – life sciences, and particularly within biolab environments.
Since then, the team has been working closely with leading life science labs to pioneer protocols that enable labs to scale with precision.
Automata Labs is the product of that philosophy – simplifying lab environments and empowering the people working tirelessly in the pursuit of progress.
