BioTX Automation, Inc.
is a laboratory automation engineering company.
BioTX is focused on two primary areas of opportunity: an automation platform
which utilizes interchangeable tools and peripheral devices produced using
BioTX’s patent pending Rapid Automation Development System (RADS) and custom
engineering and design services. The RADS parts are designed using SolidWorks,
are fabricated in hours utilizing a Dimension rapid prototyping printer and
are made of ABS plastic. Virtually any part that will fit in an 8”x8”x12” work
envelope may be fabricated using this method. BioTX has initially chosen an
Epson SCARA automation platform that may be customized with our standard
product line that includes snap-on end effecters and work stations for: liquid
handling, plate manipulation and assay automation or may be further customized
with custom RADS end effecters. BioTX Automation also provides turnkey
engineered systems which address the customers’ exact needs in a timely and an
inexpensive manner. By using BioTX’s RADS technology weeks can be shaved off
the normal time required to automate a lab process.

Bryson’s Plastics is a small plastics molding company. I
manufacture everything from highly detailed sword handles and sculptures to inventors
prototypes, with 22 years of mold making experience. My process differs from injection
molding as I can also do undercut molding I charge a small tooling fee for small simple
items with an order of 300 or more or if you want just one or two models there is a small
tooling fee around $200.00 for small items. You send me a model ready for molding, and I
send you the cast model in plastic for your approval. An average casting will cost approx.
$10.00 each. You have the advantage of changing designs often and eliminating that
expensive injection molding fee. As a retired engineer I enjoy assisting inventors in
accomplishing their goals. The average turn around time is 2 weeks.

Please call, 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
