Open source pipetting robot – aBioBot

aBioBot is an open source liquid handling (i.e., pipetting) robot platform with integrated machine vision. The system can deal with multiple tube types, and detect if a tip falls off. It also has an extensive web-based protocol authoring and monitoring software package.

OpenTrons – liquid handling robots for high throughput

OpenTrons is a project to develop an open architecture for liquid handling lab robots. Actually, they’re more versatile than that. They can also be used for related robotic tasks, such as pick-and-place machines. They already have BioBot 1.0 available: parts, plans, and directions are all online. Open Electronics has an interview with OpenTrons’ Will Canine.
