Our History

Cost-effective, unmatched capacity, and unparalelled turnaround times A wholly-owned subsidiary of Opentrons Labworks, PRL launched in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to address the pressing need to make rapid, accurate and low-cost testing equitably accessible to all populations. By integrating Opentrons’ leading laboratory automation, together with world-renowned scientific expertise, PRL has revolutionized the PCR testing process by reducing the cost and increasing the speed and accuracy of COVID-19 testing. In addition to diagnostic PCR testing, PRL’s CLIA-certified laboratories perform non-diagnostic, whole genome sequencing services to detect and track SARS-CoV-2 variants in real time and inform both public and private health responses. PRL’s fast and cost-efficient clinical testing services are designed to set new standards in disease diagnostics to better inform treatment guidelines and health outcomes.

We’re a market newcomer, but we have decades of experience in this industry

PRL is led by a team of experts in genetics, clinical diagnostics, and robotics. PRL’s state-of-the-art labs use knowledge and technology licensed from NYU Langone based on research led by world-class geneticist Dr. Jef Boeke.
