Automate life science labs in minutes instead of days

Our mission is to empower life scientists with accessible automation solutions they can use everywhere, everyday!

Workflow automation Data integration Remote accessibility Collaborative automation Laboratory IoT SiLA 2 development support

We are a modern software technology company that focuses on developing easy-to-use, reusable and flexible automation that adapts to the changing requirements in everyday life science research. We take pride in giving our customers the ability to add devices and repurpose the laboratory automation systems without further assistance or service fees. We believe that by employing latest robotic and networking technologies we can offer a more capable, flexible and easier to use product.

Control any instrument from a web browser

UniteLabs has developed a free tool, SiLA 2 Browser, to discover and control any SiLA 2 compatible instrument in the network from a web browser. This is the easiest way to experience the benefits of SiLA 2, test and develop your own SiLA 2 based solutions and demonstrate the lab of the future.

Crowdfunded open source SiLA 2 drivers

UniteLabs has committed to bring our SiLA 2 drivers available for free and with an open source code whenever possible. Don't reinvent the wheel, but build on top of our free SiLA 2 solutions available on the SiLA website. We are crowdfunding the development of these drivers to build a public library of SiLA 2 compatible instruments. By sharing your interest via our crowdfunding form, we will be able to split the price tag with the interested parties and make the drivers available at a fraction of the typical cost.
