This is a robot platform that can be fitted a standard Gibson pipette to conduct repetitive open-loop small-quantity liquid handling. Its is a heavily modified version of the opentrons.comOT.ONE. Here provided open, with the hope it can help budget labs to obtain an automated solution to help with the work load, or plainly curious minds who want to play around with molecular biology. I have produced a working prototype of this a couple of years ago : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlGT0nzT_E8and I will try and document the process here as well as discuss possible improvements to the design. Thank you for viewing and happy building!
I'd like to share the good news that Michel Vorasane, an undergraduate student in Biology and ecology with an electronic engineering background has joined the team. He will be constructing one of his own, and we aim to get an improved design ,based on the knowledge from the prototype, as well as documenting the process as he makes progress.
