This is the OT.One liquid handling robot, the core of OpenTrons’ rapid-prototyping platform for biotech. Shown below with a standard single channel micropipette:

This video shows some of the upgrades available to the OT.One — the OT.MagWash station for magnetic micro-bead washes, a multi-channel micropipette, and on-board camera (see below for details on the Starter Kit and Pro Upgrade).

Accelerate your research!

Biologists today spend too much time moving around tiny amounts of liquid by hand. Micropipetting is a repetitive, error-prone, time consuming task, and it is slowing down research.

The OT.One does pipetting for you so you can focus on moving your project forward. Lower your error rate, free up your time, accelerate your research.

Synbio Starter Kit!

Not a scientist? No problem! Our Synbio Starter Kit can get you up and running with synthetic biology!

Together with Synbiota, we put together a kit that lets you run the “hello world” of synthetic biology — assemble a DNA design from modular genetic blocks, and boot it up in a bacteria to make it glow red under a blacklight!

The Synbiota kit includes four Genomikon DNA Blocks: an Anchor, a Linker, a red florescent protein gene copied from pink choral, and a Cap that completes the plasmid.

Here is a video about the Genomikon DNA Assembly Process from Synbiota!
