A leading force in laboratory automation, Automata, has chosen Southampton Science Park for its first satellite office outside of London. The company has moved a team into Epsilon House and is providing close proximity support to the NHS Covid-19 testing facility on-site.
Automata provides a simple and affordable way to automate laboratory processes, enabling lab-based teams to work faster and smarter by eliminating repetitive, dull and strenuous manual tasks, while removing human error and exposure to biohazardous substances.
Its industrial robot Eva is the most cost effective, flexible and easy-to-use industrial robotic arm available. Small enough to fit around any workflow in both laboratory and manufacturing spaces, Eva’s six degrees of freedom make it as nimble as any human arm, and almost as easy to programme.
The company works with organisations including 3M, Samsung, TDK and across the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors.
Applications Lead, Matthew Keegan, commented: “Although we’re still moving in the furniture, the Science Park has been our second home for some time already! We’re so thankful for the wonderful welcome we’ve received already, and I’d like to extend particular thanks to all of the staff at the Fusion Cafe who have kept us well fed throughout this difficult period.”
