Consumables Losses are Considerable
01 / 05

Approximately 35% of chemicals are discarded before use. What if that could be 0%?

  • With Revo
  • Without Revo

The customer only pays for chemicals they use, guaranteeing 0% waste.

There is no practical approach to reduce the waste level from 35%. Requiring optimization from local management steals valuable mind share and centralizing the chemical operations increases cross-contamination risks and hence replication problems.

Wet laboratory space is precious, and much of it can be consumed by solution inputs – such as chemical storage, a water purifier, balances, pH meters, and stirrer plates. What if you could fit it all in the footprint of a single water purifier?

  • With Revo
  • Without Revo

Everything can be managed in a footprint comparable to a single water purifier.

Most likely 3-5x more bench space will be occupied, with each of the following likely to take similar bench space as a Revo:

  • A water purifier
  • Balance
  • Stirrer Plate & pH probe
  • Storage space taken up by rubber gloves, extra pipettes and weighing boats
  • Storage space taken up by holding a too large inventory of chemicals

It’s also worth note that a Revo can support nearly 30 people, who might have multiples of many of the above between them.

A lab bench space in Cambridge, MA currently costs up to $5,500/month.

An experienced scientist’s time is highly valuable. It is difficult to prepare your solution and document your steps in less than 60 minutes. What if that could be 0?

  • With Revo
  • Without Revo

Up to 30 of your people might not use a single minute on solution preparation ever again.

Show More

At best, the user can order solutions from the outside, pay remarkable markups and get what they need 2-3 days after the orders are placed.

At worst, the 30 people that Revo could cater to spend up to 80 hours every week bored out of their minds preparing solutions.

This means that the Revo could free up two full-time resources to work on value-adding activities.

LabMinds customers estimate that:

  • Preparing a typical solution takes 30-35 minutes.
  • The documentation process takes the same amount of time, effectively doubling the time needed to prepare a single solution.
  • They dedicate 2h/week to solution preparation, with academic scientists who purify proteins spending about 6h/week. In fact, this burden inspired one of our co-founders to automate solution preparation.
Chemical Safety
04 / 05

Solution preparation is possibly the most common task that requires handling dangerous chemicals at high concentrations. What if you didn’t have to?

  • With Revo
  • Without Revo

Hands-off solution preparation nearly eliminates direct contact with concentrated chemicals.

Show More

Without Revo, solution preparation remains an inherently dangerous process. The best you can hope for is considerable time and plastic waste via meticulous safety procedures.

At worst, the overheads are reduced while the risks are increased, an unacceptable tradeoff.

Latex gloves offer limited protection to many chemicals. Two of the worst lab accidents in recent memory were due to sulfuric acid and dimethylmercury on latex gloves.

  • 10% of people surveyed have suffered chemical burns in a laboratory (Nature, 2013 DOI: 10.1038/493009a)
  • 7% of people surveyed had inhaled dangerous chemicals in a laboratory (Nature, 2013 DOI: 10.1038/493009a)

With the costs of laboratories so high, time to market is crucial. Waiting for solution or chemical deliveries or preparation all waste precious times. What if you never had to?

  • With Revo
  • Without Revo

The Revo can work overnight, guaranteeing that even the earliest riser starts their morning with the solutions they ordered.

With the inventory run by LabMinds, you won’t be waiting for chemicals either.

Show More

Options range on one side from waiting a few days for the core facility to waiting a few days for external deliveries to, on the other side, spending hours preparing them yourself – assuming someone has managed inventory well enough for everything to be available.

Many people are used to such delays many times a month. It is hard to even assess the cumulative costs these impose, and few do, because until now there was no alternative.
