Client Quote: "I wanted to let you know that the mill has worked exceptionally well. We have repeated a cocrystal screen for an in-house molecule, and we were able to generate all cocrystals found by time-intensive slurry method previously done (~1 week) in about 30 minutes."

Example Projects

An oil services company wanted to develop an innovative approach to their operations. They approached Automaxion and we attended their brain storming session and provided them with several useful ideas and approaches to the problem.

Dr Bysouth developed the concept for a very high throughput formulation robot used to screen and characterise crop protection formulations. Building the system was based on his assesment of capability, throughput and budget and the invention of enabling devices.

A personal care company wanted to automate their formulation laboratory. Automaxion provided ideas as to where productivity could be improved but also suggested that the proposed area for automation was not ideal.
