BioAutomation is a biotechnology company whose focus is providing automation solutions to synthesize many variations of DNA and RNA in small quantities for research and development. They approached us to design a new product that would allow researchers to synthesize one type of DNA / RNA at larger quantities. This self contained unit keeps electronics, pneumatics, and solutions sealed and separated from each other and the end user.
The LS1 unit chassis was designed in Solidworks and is all 316 stainless steel to survive the corrosive acids and bases used in the DNA / RNA synthesizing process. The electrical design used hardened components well suited for 24/7 industrial use. Custom in house designed circuit boards were used to simplify wiring and troubleshooting for a very polished end product.
