Brooklyn, NY: On May 3, 2017, Opentrons Labworks Inc., a lab automation company and creator of the OT-One line of affordable pipetting robots, has launched the OT-One S line of robots to replace prior generation. Starting at $3,000, the same price as the previous line-up of robots, customers can now execute experiments at 2x the speed and cut the runtime of a protocol by 50%. For example, the robot can fill a 96 well-plate in less than 90 seconds. This substantial upgrade makes Opentrons a great, affordable alternative to manually pipetting by hand and frees up scientists’ time at the bench.
Opentrons Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer Will Canine said, “The launch of the OT-One S is an important milestone towards our vision of robots running common protocols on every lab bench. For every scientist to have one, lab robots must be affordable. Opentrons is drastically increasing robot performance while maintaining our low price point, doubling down on our commitment to make our robots accessible to every biologist around the world.”
