Transcriptic Platform reimagines life science lab work by combining precise, machine-readable protocol contracts and a remote on-demand infrastructure accessible via a newly released API (application programming interface). This approach allows users to maintain full experimental control while remotely executing the protocols using Transcriptic's automated lab infrastructure, effectively eliminating the time-intensive manual labor component of laboratory research.
"By its very nature, life science research is a slow, expensive and labor-intensive endeavor. Transcriptic's mission is to provide the infrastructure necessary to lower costs, improve reproducibility, and allow researchers to do the projects that right now they can only wish they could run," said
Unlike traditional lab services offered by contract research organizations (CROs), Transcriptic Platform allows for direct control of the experimental protocol by the customer, enabling far more sophisticated and dynamic applications. Transcriptic's Common Lab Environment (TCLE) uniquely combines proven hardware, innovative new software, and the human element.
Not only do users have access to a wide array of state-of-the-art lab equipment and the most advanced APIs for customizing experimentation protocols, but Transcriptic also offers unparalleled collaboration with a team of highly qualified Ph.D. scientists and engineers who provide valuable support at every step of the process. The platform is also scalable to meet the needs of numerous clients at one time. Researchers can run many projects in parallel and can remotely monitor progress and view quality control data via Transcriptic's online interface.
In addition to the platform, Transcriptic also announced its Research Partnership Program, which allows customers with projects that produce a high volume of output to have the option of performing a low-cost test run to ensure reliable results, and then receive a deep discount on scaling up their validated protocol.
Research in labs at several higher education institutions - including
"The building phase is a critical component to research, but can be extremely mundane, repetitive, and mindless," said
Transcriptic's approach to lab work has resonated with investors, and the company has received
"Some of the smartest people I know spend a majority of their time on mundane tasks like manually moving around small volumes of liquid, labeling samples, culturing cells, etc. This inefficient approach is a real speed bump to innovation," said
