Why Automata?

Scale rapidly icon

Scale rapidly

Unparalleled speed in deployment, from proof of concept to completion, means you could be scaling output and meeting demand within weeks, not months.

Total automation icon

Total workflow automation

Each and every stage of the workflow is automated, minimising the amount of manual input needed to conduct assays.

Faster together icon

Faster together

From inception to installation and beyond, as your automation partner we’ll help you to accelerate in your pursuit of progress.

Modular Pods

The Pods are modular units that perform the assays. Housing a robotic arm that operates tried-and-tested lab equipment, multiple Pods can seamlessly integrate into larger protocols, increasing lab efficiency.

Compact icon


Overcomes any space constraints by fitting into an area similar in size to a lab bench, with flexible layout options to suit your environment.

Fast deployment icon

Fast deployment & adaptation

From swapping in or out of individual assays, to a full-scale lab upgrade, pods adapt easily to meet demand.

Reliable icon


Visual computer sensors monitor and confirm success of assays completed with standard lab equipment, instilling confidence in automation reproducibility.


Our management software schedules and orchestrates the protocols from a single platform. It captures and stores data from the Modular Pods, which enhances reproducibility. And it’s cloud-based, so you can monitor your lab from anywhere at any time.

Simple design icon

Simple design

The easy-to-use interface, presented on just one screen, makes setting up, scheduling, and monitoring workflows simple for all users - no previous experience needed.

Reproducibility icon


Automatic scheduling determines the correct automation workflow to standardise each assay, giving you confidence in the traceability and accuracy of results.

Continuous improvement icon

Continuous improvement

The wealth of data tracked and captured enables you to see which processes are working well and which could be tweaked to improve efficiency.

Managed Service

Hefty upfront fees can make automation inaccessible for labs that would like to scale. That’s why we’ve broken our service cost down into manageable monthly instalments – providing you with ongoing support from proof of concept to deployment and beyond.

Inception icon

Inception & design

Initial assessments and proof of concepts are completed as part of the service, saving you the outlay of traditional consultation costs.
