Warehouse and Welcome Crew

Tina and Bobo have been with the company from the beginning. If we make a mistake we usually blame them.



We welcome and will compensate you for your ideas! We are currently working with several "inventors" - lab techs and scientists who have come up with clever ideas for new smartTools. We work together with the inventor to flesh out the idea, design and bring the product to market.

If you have an idea for a new lab consumable but aren't ready to start your own company, find manufacturing and distribution….contact us, perhaps we can work together!
