We build custom laboratory automation equipment. This most often involves designing and building electro-mechanical systems and the software that is needed to control them.
We generally prefer a python API as it can easily be integrated with other pieces of software. However, we can develop a graphical or hardware interface according to your specifications if that is what you prefer.
We leverage rapid prototyping technologies to develop hardware as fast as possible Depending on your project, it may take anywhere between a week to a few months to finish.
Much less than you might think. Generally, the cost of your project depends on its difficulty, and how useful it may be to other customers. Sometimes there is a lot of overlap between projects, reducing costs.
DropLab tends to keep the IP developed during projects, this is one of the reasons we can offer our services at a very low price. However, we are open to negotiation if your require the IP.
We are based in Kitchener, Waterloo, Canada and we work with engineers from around the world to create the right solution for your needs, which is the other reason we can offer our services for very low prices.
