Meet the Next Generation Lab Automation Pipette Robot


opentrons FLEX - Your lab automation pipette system

Opentrons Flex is a liquid-handling robot designed for high throughput and complex workflows. The Flex robot is the base of a modular system that includes pipettes, a labware gripper, on-deck modules, and labware — all of which you can swap out yourself. Flex is designed with a touchscreen so you can work with it directly at the lab bench, or you can control it from across your lab with the Opentrons App or our open-source APIs.
