We come from an international network of passionate scientists, hackers and artists whose focus is to make biotechnology more accessible to everyone. It was a lot of fun!
In this context, already more than two years ago we set to develop the Arduino® equivalent for biology so that anyone could easily prototype novel applications in this field. After almost one year of meetings and iterations, we co-designed and produced the OpenDrop (which btw you can buy here if you’re interested in prototyping EWOD devices!).
The growing interest for what we were doing with OpenDrop made us think to transform it from a hacker-style geeky tech to an industry standard device. To take a step further in this direction, we built Auryn which through a series of strategic partnerships is nurturing an ecosystem of contributors, so that we can further developed our technology and expand its applications to fully integrate the procedures needed during the diverse plethora of protocols that molecular biologists require. Our mission is to provide a flexible environment that will allow the Auryn ecosystem to tackle any applications in biology, health care and related fields.
