About us

Founded in 2003, NanoScreen designs and manufactures instruments and consumables that are used by most of the major pharmaceutical and biotech companies in the world.  We specialize in providing automated solutions that allow researchers to precisely and simultaneously transfer hundreds or thousands of compounds.  Our core competency is in the design and manufacturing of high density air displacement heads, disposable pipette tips and robotic liquid handling workstations.

Our mission and values

Our mission is to "Create and deliver high value, innovative solutions for the Life Sciences".  Our objective is to transform the modern Life Sciences laboratory and expand the capabilities of liquid handling workstations, dispense head technology and disposable pipette tips.

Focus on the needs of our customers.  NanoScreen remains focused on bringing products to market that allow our customers to concentrate on doing what they do best – research. Our rigorous commitment to expanding the capabilities of liquid handling robots, dispense head technology and disposable pipette tips allows customers to attain their goals with accuracy, efficiency and precision.

Simple operations.  Researchers and scientists want efficient and straight forward operations when performing experiments. We deliver products that are easy to use, accurate and deliver – everyday! – excellent results.

Demonstrate the value of our products.  Customers do not benefit from products and services they cannot afford or use easily, while trying to meet increasingly high expectations. NanoScreen is developing workstations and technology that support the needs of customers while being compellingly priced.

Remain performance driven and non-proprietary.  We create products on an open platform that increase efficiency and effectiveness while maintaining versatility. They are easily programmed to run any manufacturer's reagents.

Our core values reflect what is truly important to us as an organization:

  1. Teamwork that capitalizes on the creativity and expertise of all employees
  2. Mutually beneficial partnerships with suppliers
  3. Exceed customer expectations
  4. Active environmental stewardship
  5. Increase long-term shareholder value
  6. We embrace open-mindedness, collaboration and ethical behavior in all our communications and relationships.

Let us help you fulfill your mission to cure disease and release humanity from pain.
