How we like to work
Here is a making-of video of our recent 2-week construction sprint at Formo - this intensive final phase is where everything we've planned and prepared comes together, involving the whole team of our client hands-on.
Smart Lab Levels
We take you on a journey to level up your lab.
Click and discover what awaits you on each level!
The foundation is a digitally enabled lab, where the scientists work with up-to-date hardware and experiment data is generated and stored digitally. At this stage, we discuss and introduce relevant tools such as ELNs, Device Management, Barcode Inventory etc.
The next level is to connect the lab devices and establish sensor systems that control and track what’s going on in the lab. You can then run small automations, improve reproducibility and understand environmental factors influencing your results.
With the digital backbone and the Connected Lab in place, we can automate even complex repetitive workflows in your experiments. We help you implement anything from small productiviy hacks to co-bots to full process automation.
With your lab being able to run full experiments automatically while tracking meaningful data every step of the way, machine learning and AI controlled experiments become reality.
Labs we have built
Inspired by the best technology and executed with energy efficiency, we build the labs of tomorrow.
Within a total of just 6 months, we planned, built and equipped a >1000m² R&D lab and prototyping pilot plant for Formo in Frankfurt.
Here, Formo will develop the future of animal-free dairy.
We designed this lab in Berlin to connect startups and innovators of our field with hands-on demos.
From an empty room to a Smart Lab in just 5 days!
At the set of the Netflix Series Biohackers, we created a big vision for the Smart Lab by designing and equipping the lab with the latest tech available.
