Scientific Research is Hard.

Running Experiments Shouldn’t Be

The Power Of You

Automation focused on the customer first. Our systems are designed via a collaboration with customers who are experts at their process and our FUJIFILM engineers with 20+ years of automation design experience.

Wako Automation designs automated systems all driven by our proprietary Director™ scheduling software. Customize your user interface for your needs. Unlike competitors’ software, Director is a modern web application, designed to be as easy to update and customize as any webpage.

The end result is automation that requires minimal training, because it’s designed by you.

“Minimal instrument downtime is essential. Wako Automation support has allowed our lab to consistently and reliably utilize three of our Yokogawa confocal microscopes for the better part of ten years. We have been always able to count on the Wako team for a timely response and quick solution to any service issue”
