Mack Molding has announced it is working with an Oxford, U.K.- and Boston, Mass.- based laboratory equipment developer that is redefining how research laboratories operate.
LabMinds’ lead product, Revo, is a smart, adaptable and fully automated liquid solution production system. It offers complete control over measuring and mixing solid and liquid compounds, full process automation and a predictive maintenance approach.
Born from Oxford University students’ winning entry in a business pitch competition—think Shark Tank—Revo accurately measures and mixes multiple chemicals into a “ready-to-use” solution—the workhorse products of laboratory research. It allows users to order and customize solutions remotely using its web or mobile interface and notifies them when the solutions have been filtered, securely dispensed and are ready to be collected. With its unsurpassed reproducibility and data accessibility, Revo brings a new level of quality control to the laboratory, improving process adherence, efficiency, reproducibility and accuracy while limiting chemical exposure.
The unit stands 5 ft. tall and measures 2 ft. wide and deep. It has three functioning modules that move on their ow and, in total, the build includes 560 components. Mack is leveraging its sheet metal shop to provide a significant portion of the components, while the company’s supplier engineering team sources the additional items. In addition, Mack also is managing final assembly and test of the complete product.
