Volta Labs, Inc.

Biological automation as agile and scalable as digital electronics.

Volta Labs is a venture-backed startup spun off from the MIT Media Lab by co-founders Udayan Umapathi and Will Langford. Volta’s vision is to make biological automation as agile, scalable and reliable as digital electronics. To realize this vision we are building a platform technology by engineering the full-stack -- hardware, software, chemistry, and biology. The underlying hardware combines solid-state electronics with a proprietary surface coating to fundamentally reduce the complexity of basic liquid-handling operations and improve precision tremendously. A simple high-level software abstraction allows users with no specialized knowledge to configure and implement any new or existing workflow on Volta’s platform quickly.

Udayan Umapathi

Udayan is currently co-founder, board member, and Chief Executive Officer of Volta Labs, Inc. a company building scalable and agile automation for genomic and genetic engineering. Prior to Volta, Udayan pursued research at various global research institutions including the MIT Media Lab. During this stints he invented and patented several microfluidics technologies, digital fabrication methods and human-computer interaction technologies.
