About Us

Wako Automation’s approach to automation focuses on the customer first.  We design and build automatic scheduling software working closely with the scientists who are experts at the semi-automated or manual process they have already designed. We use our experience and engineering expertise to make our customer’s vision come alive.

Wako Automation provides robust designs, laboratory hardware, and integration services all linked by our proprietary Director™ lab scheduling software. The end result is a reliable walk-away system that can meticulously fulfill unique and diverse laboratory processes day and night, 7 days per week, with minimal downtime, and easy recovery.
