Transcriptic: Robotic laboratory science | The Verge


curated by | December 22, 2013

“Inside a nondescript office park in Silicon Valley, a robotic arm is running a test. With rapid, precise movements, the arm pipettes colored liquids into wells on a tray. Within a few minutes its work is done: the arm has pipetted the logo forTranscriptic, a fast-growing, Google Ventures-backed robotics startup that could upend the way biologists do their research.”

John Payne‘s insight:

Why this matters is probably best summed up by Google Ventures partner Blake Byers “It’s a fact that I’ve wasted many hours of my life moving my hand around to transport small volumes of liquid from one tube to another.”

The Verge has apparently started blocking deep links, so enter “Transcriptic” in the search field that appears in response to the link below.
