About




Flow Robotics creates flexible, user-friendly liquid handling robots for lab automation. It aims to replace repetitive, time-consuming and burdensome manual pipetting tasks, yielding consistent results and freeing up time to work on interesting scientific problems.

As the robots are controlled using an Internet browser, no installation is required. And better yet, no programming is required.

Ease of use is the lifeblood of Flow Robotics. Using patented technology, live video from the robot is combined with the graphical user interface to make specification of protocols intuitive. With augmented reality, what you see is really what you get!


History




Flow Robotics A/S is a Danish spin-off company from the IT University of Copenhagen. It was founded in December 2015 by Professor and Universal Robots Co-founder Kasper Støy and Assistant Professor Andres Faina. Both are employed at the IT University of Copenhagen where they have been working on developing user-friendly liquid handling robots.

Funding from engaged board members, owners, Innovationsfonden and Markedmodningsfonden has enabled further development of the patented robot technology and resulted in the FlowBot One pipetting robot. FlowBot One has been used by pilot customers since August 2017 and launch will take place by end June 2018.

Flow Robotics A/S is based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
