LabSmith designs and manufactures laboratory equipment for research, prototyping and OEM product development.
LabSmith products control all aspects of experimentation, including microfluidic fluid routing and automation, voltage control, synchronization, and event capture and visualization.
LabSmith was founded by researchers. In 1995 Dr. Eric Cummings’ work at Caltech and other institutions led to a new approach to research equipment design. By developing reliable “building blocks” for high-speed timing and coordination, LabSmith introduced a reliable alternative to expensive, complex, single-use systems. “We know what it means to spend hours trying to prototype experiments from random components,” said Dr. Cummings. “We know the value of a setup that simply works, time and again, without distraction.”
Over the past twenty years LabSmith established itself as a leading innovator in microfluidics, developing a suite of intercompatible products to control and automate fluid routing, voltage, temperature, and image capture. LabSmith microfluidic products are used around the world, from university teaching labs to innovative startups to global biotechnology companies.
Today, led by President Kirsten Pace, LabSmith has also increased its support of OEM product development. LabSmith components and control systems are now integrated into a wide range of laboratory instruments and sensing equipment.
