The LabMinds Mission
Our long-term vision is to connect individual lab machines to communicate with each other, hook-up the labs as a whole to the web (intra and inter) using UIs that aren't from the Stone Age (you wouldn't believe some of the 'modern' interfaces.
Our lead product, EasySolution, is a machine that fully automates one of the most ubiquitous processes in the liquid-handling laboratories (liquid solution preparation). Our machine will impact literally millions of career professionals and our technology is set to become a leader in this �5 billion market.
As one would expect EasySolution has a large hardware component, but it might come as a surprise that about half of our product and business are heavily software oriented. Reason for that: we integrate a HUGE amount of logic into the system and hook it up to the net to enable EasySolution to learn/self-improve, crowd-source and analyse huge amounts of data, remote monitor it, analyse it for error states and offer remote support. All pretty much never done before in this sector so we're in for a big splash and some serious awards!
Our team is composed of two MBAs and two Biochemistry PhDs with each team member also holding engineering degree - expect to find at least two whiteboards per person in our office. We have been called the most overeducated startup ever...which enabled us to build the prototype of our product mostly in-house and on a true shoe-string budget! We go the extra mile to make our vision work.
Life at LabMinds
We are currently working in a corner office suit overlooking Oxford's scenic High Street, and plan to relocate to one of the business parks around Oxford in a couple of months. As we will all spend a fair amount of time there, we'll naturally make sure that it is an enjoyable work environment.
