Founded in 2013 and based in New York USA they are developers of pipetting robotics and opensource software packages. The Opentron Ot-2 is the second generation robot produced with dual head pipetting abilities in a compact desktop lab robot. 

“Today, biologists spend too much time pipetting by hand. We think biologists should have robots to do pipetting for them. People doing science should be free of tedious benchwork and repetitive stress injuries. They should be able to spend their time designing experiments and analyzing data.

That’s why we started Opentrons.

We make robots for biologists. Our mission is to provide the scientific community with a common platform to easily share protocols and reproduce each other’s results. Our robots automate experiments that would otherwise be done by hand, allowing our community to spend more time pursuing answers to some of the 21st century’s most important questions” Opentrons Mission Statement Source:
