Automata Labs Eva: The flexible lab robot arm

One of Automata Labs’ actuation tools, Eva’s ease-of-use, compact size and 6 degrees of freedom integrates with our comprehensive automation platform

Robot Eva arm

Which lab applications does Eva integrate with?

Automata Labs Eva is used in conjunction with other lab instruments that perform liquid handling, plate placement, thermocycling and more.  Automating a number of lightweight (<1.25kg) applications, we enable teams to remove bottlenecks, optimise workflows in parallel and run additional operational shifts without increasing costs.

Perfect for laboratories

Deployed at scale for highly precise and repeatable tasks across diagnostics, drug discovery and biotechnology labs, Automata Labs Eva helps empower life sciences with accessible laboratory workflow automation.

Technical specifications

Automata Labs Eva provides 24V industrial logic: digital and analog inputs and outputs, totalling 32 pins. Designed in accordance with international standards for industrial machinery, it also has no control boxes and no pendants.

Connectivity and set-up

Our software gives control over all Automata Labs protocols, Automata Eva & other lab machines as a teaching pendant or external control box, all without the added need for a fixed external device – including allowing you to control robots & more in your lab remotely from the cloud, REST API & Python SDK.

Testing with Eva

Our modular lab pods & Automata Labs Eva can be set up over WiFi, ethernet and access points, and the robot’s small footprint (160mm x 160mm) allows it to be set up with 4 M6 screws or bolts for rapid changeovers for other lab processes.


Conducting a risk assessment is still critical for robots in the lab.

As part of a new generation of lighter and safer robots, Automata Labs Eva & its integrations are less dangerous to those working alongside it, but it should still be considered a piece of industrial machinery and treated accordingly.

Lab with automation

Conducting a risk assessment is the first step in identifying risks that may arise during operation, as well as hazards associated with the deployment of automation.


Automata Labs Eva is bundled with a range of other lab instruments, making it suitable for advanced and complex applications within a laboratory, such as diagnostic & drug discovery solutions

  • Smart cameras for dynamic positioning
  • PLCs or Raspberry Pi for use in controlling multiple robots or integration with a conveyor belts
  • Supply chain management tools
  • Software such as Labview
Testing Eva in lab

The ability to program Automata Labs Eva via our software or the robust API (and Python SDK) means that the robot can be deployed to other lab processes
