Accelerating new drug discovery through automation

Laboratory workflow automation for high-throughput screening

The challenge

Opportunities for scaling up screening protocols in the field of drug discovery may be limited by factors connecting their hardware, software, and data.


When higher throughput is achieved, quality may be reduced when tracking the sample journey from start to finish may be missed.


Thousands of samples screening leaves swathes of wasted compounds as other pipetting approaches are not as accurate.


When attracting the right staff, they want more meaningful work. Manually carrying out repetitive tasks, such as compound library or sample preparation, means screening and testing is limited by working hours, and leads to staff turnover.


Labs may not be able to increase screening output if already working to maximum capacity with disparate instruments.

The solution

Automata enables labs to scale high-throughput tests by combining tried-and-tested lab equipment with robotic automation technology, ensuring quality and traceability at scale.


Tracking sample journeys via barcode scanning, time-stamping and more, you can be assured of a consistent sample journey from start to finish.


Reducing human touch points increases reproducibility and ensures consistent reliability of sample results, with no wastage of compounds.

Maximise Space

Modular in design, the pods overcome any space constraints limiting growth with flexible layout options that adapt to your environment.


Automation is prohibitive without adequate funding. Whether your lab is at thousands of samples, or hundreds of thousands, we partner with you to make automation accessible and simple.
