What We Do

We implement solutions that make your science a reality.

Instrument Design & Fabrication designs, builds, and tests commercially unavailable instruments, tools, and software. We listen to Janelia researchers to understand their needs, share ideas, and then execute on a technical plan. We collaborate throughout the process, from concept to completion. We’re constantly improving our design engineering and manufacturing to ensure we can build cost-effective tools fast.
