Partners in Laboratory Automation

The world is waiting for your results.
Leverage the power of laboratory automation to reach them faster.

Experimental processes involve a global network of partners and resources

Automation of physical operations depends on automation of dataflows.

This sample is unique and valuable. It deserves to be properly identified.

Process automation makes it possible to track all the samples associated with an experiment.

Successful automation relies on a comprehensive process modeling effort.

Success does not happen by accident. Failure does.

We help research teams improve their productivity by leveraging the power of rule-based automation to improve the quality and quantity of data produced by their labs. Using our laboratory automation platform, they can standardize and automate their laboratory workflows to produce more and better data that lead to faster and stronger results.

An analysis of past studies indicates that the cumulative (total) prevalence of irreproducible preclinical research exceeds 50%, resulting in approximately US$28,000,000,000 (US$28B)/year spent on preclinical research that is not reproducible—in the United States alone.

Labs come to us because they need to…

... meet deadlines

They are facing aggressive deadlines to reach critical milestones. They have collected vast amounts of data but struggle to extract actionable information from them. Team members are uncertain how they can best contribute to the project success.

... increase productivity
They are under intense pressure to increase productivity. They need to automate their processes but are unsure of their automation strategy. In some cases, they may have lost valuable data or samples.
... get results
They are facing reproducibility issues because their processes are poorly documented and they need to increase the quality of their data. They also need to collect more data and they need to scale up their research projects to reach strong conclusions.

More than 70% of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist’s experiments, and more than half have failed to reproduce their own experiments. Those are some of the telling figures that emerged from Nature‘s survey of 1,576 researchers who took a brief online questionnaire on reproducibility in research.

Why chose GenoFAB?

We understand that your priority is the success of the project you are working on today. We do not try to automate all your operations at once but only the most critical project. We recommend automating one project at a time to maximize the return on investment rather than trying to migrate all your old data in the new system. 

Your project is unique. Your business is unique. We develop custom automation solutions that reflect your unique way of conducting your business. We do not try to make your organization adopt cookie-cutter processes implemented in our software. Our solutions make your unique processes even better. 

We have experienced the challenges of developing quality software. We think we create more value by integrating best-in-class software applications when possible rather than trying to develop ourselves all the tools you need. We take advantage of modern cloud-computing architectures to provide a unified user experience through integration of existing applications and focus our software development effort to create truly unique features.

We have experienced the challenges of running lean operations at scale. We understand how to eliminate waste and scale up research operations. We think that scientific creativity should be confined to the design of experiments and the interpretation of data not to the processes of collecting these data.

We have experienced the frustration of traditional software licensing models that limits access to software applications. We don’t use the traditional software licensing model where users pay in advance a fee for everyone who needs access to the software. We understand that everyone in your team needs access to the tools that bring the team together. We provide flexible licensing terms to give everyone in your team the tools they need to contribute to the success of your next project. 

While problems with cell line misidentification have been known for decades, an unknown number of published papers remains in circulation reporting on the wrong cells without warning or correction. Here we attempt to make a conservative estimate of this ‘contaminated’ literature. We found 32,755 articles reporting on research with misidentified cells, in turn cited by an estimated half a million other papers.

Your success depends on laboratory automation…

Many accidental discoveries have shaped our world and many people have won the lottery

However, relying on chance to make the next discovery would be as foolish as playing the lottery to make a living.

Large sets of high-quality data are the foundation of scientific success. 

Small datasets cannot be generalized. Low quality data are misleading.

Automation standardizes processes which reduces process failure and variability.
Reducing failure and uncontrolled variability reduces costs and improves quality. 

 

Automation reduces costs by allowing people to do a few things very well and very cheaply. It enable division of labor and economies of scale, two proven methods to achieve greater efficiency.  GenoFAB helps organizations adopt laboratory automation methods to extract actionable information from experimental data.

To remain competitive in the biotech marketplace, organizations must adopt new approaches that leverage the power of data analytics. The new bottleneck is no longer lack of experimental capabilities; rather, it is the lack of processes that maximize the value of available resources.

GenoFAB provides an integrated platform that extracts actionable information from research data. The GenoFAB platform increases team performance by giving each project stakeholder including scientists, managers, technicians, suppliers, and collaborators the scientific and operational information they need to do their job and contribute to the project success.
