The Earlham BioFoundry provides a suite of automated platforms for molecular and microbiological workflows to researchers in academia and industry. It specialises in the rapid design, construction, and testing of genetically reprogrammed organisms. Our automated workflows include DNA assembly, genome engineering, cell-free protein synthesis, library screening and micro fermentation. However, we can apply our expertise to automate numerous everyday and specialised workflows such as handling mutant libraries, library preparation, purification of nucleic acids, and growth and activity assays, increasing experimental throughput while reducing reaction volumes and human error. 

Established workflows can be requested as a service or we can work collaboratively on larger projects, including hosting research staff. Foundry staff are available for consultations and collaborations to automate and scale manual workflows and to develop new methods and approaches. We also provide training in laboratory automation, sharing our scientific expertise and technical knowledge with the wider bioscience community through practical training sessions, laboratory placements and training courses.
