The Transcriptic robotic cloud lab provides a great advantage for large-scale biomarker assays, delivering consistent sample to sample processing with robotic reliability, all on demand when you need it. We’ve enabled both large pharma and small biotech to quantify DNA, RNA and proteins from hundreds or thousands of samples in an automated and programmatically driven way.

SHARED INFRASTRUCTURE

The cloud lab model of Transcriptic ensures that the lab automation is used to its highest efficiency, this is enabled by having the robotic infrastructure as a shared resource consumed by all users. A result of this is that once runs are submitted they enter into a queue until enough robotic capacity is available for execution.

INTRODUCING BSL-2 WORKCELL INSTANCES

Ben Miles on 9/14/16 6:03 PM

Since the start of Transcriptic users have only been able to conduct Biosafety Level 1 (BSL-1) experiments on our automated cloud infrastructure. We believed that executing well at this lower stringency threshold meant that we could deliver a great service for our users whilst still ensuring we could rapidly develop our capabilities.
