The Future of Life Sciences
Artificial’s mission is to accelerate the pace of life science discoveries by making automation accessible.
To accelerate the development of gene therapies and life-saving drugs, or rapid pandemic response, life science companies can no longer afford to have automation solutions that are siloed and difficult to use.
Instead, they need an automation platform that is fully connected across their entire lab — from its software and data to its people and hardware — and intuitive for anyone to use.
To address this need, we bring together the fundamentals of automation, life sciences, and UX onto a single, easy-to-use platform — the Artificial Product Suite.
Now, scientists can focus on their next breakthrough, not wrangling their automation.
BenchSci’s vision is to bring novel medicine to patients 50% faster by 2025. We’re achieving it by empowering scientists with the world’s most advanced biomedical artificial intelligence. Backed by top-tier investors including Inovia Capital, TCV, F-Prime, Gradient Ventures (Google’s AI fund), and Golden Ventures, our platform accelerates science at 16 top-20 pharmaceutical companies and over 4,500 leading research centers worldwide. We’re a remote-first Deloitte Tech Fast 50 and CIX Top 10 Growth company, certified Great Place to Work®, and top-ranked company on Glassdoor. Learn more at www.benchsci.com.
