We make tools to help scientists do their best work in complex labs.

We’re doing it because we believe that modern labs are capable of a lot more than they already are. While there’s an incredible amount of powerful software, sophisticated hardware and talented people hard at work on the frontiers of the life sciences, it's difficult to make it all work together like a single system.

We want to change that. That’s why we’re building software to help accelerate even the most complex work that’s going on right now. That's why we’re building an operating system for your lab to help scientists do their best work, day in and day out.

That's why we're doing what we do.

What We’ve Been Up To

Forming the Idea

Work starts in earnest to develop software for the modern lab, including the earliest version of our compiler.

Joining YCombinator

We’re selected to join YCombinator as part of the S18 cohort.

Setting up at MIT

We join The Engine, MIT’s incubator for early-stage tough-tech companies.

Closing Our First Seed Round

Our seed financing round closes after we raise investment from FirstMinute Capital. Work accelerates.

Working With Our First Major Client

We start working with a large pharmaceutical company to deploy the first version of our scheduler.

Picking Up the Pace

The world changes. The urgency of our work kicks up a notch and we focus on building our software, working remotely and making even greater progress.

How We Work

Customers as Co-Creators

Nobody likes an ivory tower, least of all us. That’s why we build our software with our feet on solid ground, working closely with our customers to create tools that have their roots in the real world, where real people use them to work on real problems.

A Leg Up on the Long Climb

The road that leads to the next breakthrough, no matter how big or small, can be a difficult one. We don’t believe in making quick fixes or unrealistic promises along that journey, though. We’re here to support you for the long haul.

Difficult Work Needs Doing

We don’t believe in shying away from the challenging work that we know needs doing, especially if it’s something that will help in the long run. That’s why we’re happy to get our hands dirty now so that even more is possible in the future.

Intent Matters Most

We won’t hold short of success just because we’ve dotted all the I’s and crossed all the T’s—we want the very best for you, making sure we uphold the real intent of our work together and seeing things through to the proper conclusion.

Put Users First

We’re building tools that empower scientists to do their best work. The more we can do to make our tools understandable, learnable, useful and usable to those people, the better.

Waste No Time

What we’re building should have existed years ago. We’re taking practical steps to make it a reality as fast as we can. We won’t rush it, but it is urgent.

Keep Things Simple

Simple is good. Simple is fast. Simple is correct. We build tools that people can understand and embrace both now and in the future. We build for people, not robots.

Data is Gold

It’s hard to express just how important data is. We treat it with respect, we secure it, we back it up and we do everything in our power to make sure nothing bad happens to it.

Aim for Antifragility

We make systems that will just work, even if something breaks. This is the real world, after all—we’re not going to pretend like it isn’t.

Make Inspection Easy

You should be able to figure out what’s what with our systems really easily. Ideally you can do it  with a simple glance, or through a secure remote system.
