 About us:

Today’s research, clinical, and quality control labs are expected to discover and produce at a pace once considered unimaginable. Now, to lead is to be led by data. The Elemental Machines platform elevates LabOps teams in charge of machines, instruments, data, facilities, training, quality, and compliance to lead data-driven discovery, development, and delivery. But there are over 300 million physical instruments, devices, and machines not yet connected to the cloud. We are simplifying the connection between the physical and digital worlds using IoT and AI-driven insights. The result is a lab united by a universal cloud-connected dashboards and operations.

We are committed to delivering on our promise to our customers: accelerate how they get science done. This commitment touches every level of our culture because we are excited every day to stretch our creativity in balancing the needs of our customers with the resources at our disposal and to thoughtfully interact with our peers to keep our mission on track.
