Laboratory Startup Costs: Incubator vs Cloud Lab

What does it cost to get started?

The ECL provides significant value over the path of performing experiments through a mix of outsourcing and incubator benches / shared equipment on a per experiment basis, lowering barriers to entry by reducing operating costs, requiring no capital purchases and enabling startups to get experiments running in under a week.

The convergence of highly automated cloud labs and AI represents a new frontier in modern research and will dramatically accelerate scientific innovation by advancing the efforts of human researchers and helping them maximize the potential of their research. The synergy created by a new digital workflow where researchers utilize a single computer interface to design, run and analyze experiments in cloud lab environments with the aid of large language models will allow researchers to spend more time developing novel approaches to experiment design and analyzing results, and less time on manual, time-intensive tasks in the lab.

How third party interpretation of your methods lies at the heart of the many hidden costs associated with outsourcing work to CROs.

There are many hidden assumptions in the design and operation…
