FABTECH First Automation for Biotechnology Ltd was formed with the aim to transform labour-extensive biotechnological processes into automated, reliable serial products for to industrial usage. Automation of biotechnological processes is often limited to robotizing manual processes and building automated readers in order to avoid human interventions. FABTECH aims to go a step further by transforming methods developed recently at laboratory scale into automated products.

FABTECH has a thorough understanding of the R&D and product development processes in biotechnology, starting from the idea born in an academic laboratories and ending as an of-the-shelf product. The biotechnological process is developed by the clients or cooperating partners and FABTECH’s activities include the design, development, building and integration of the first prototype and then its further development to a marketable product. Beside technical development, FABTECH pays attention on the marketability of the device. The cost effective manufacturing in serial production is taken into consideration during all steps of activities. FABTECH supports its clients with market studies and commercialisation strategies, too.
