Company details

OpenTrons has a liquid handling robot for small- to medium-scale laboratories that would be appropriate for testing in hospitals everywhere. In a 10-robot configuration, OpenTrons can run up to 15,000 COVID-19 tests per week. Each robot costs ~$8,000 per unit to deploy, and the 10-robot rapid scaled testing configuration costs $100,000. On April 22, OpenTrons announced a partnership with Zymo Research Corp, a California-based life science reagent company, to produce a high-throughput, fast turn-around, and affordable RNA extraction solution to combat COVID-19. Based in Brooklyn, the HAX graduate is well-funded with strong traction, and has been shipping for more than 4 years. Read more here.
