Hi Lucy, thanks for the intro, seems like a really innovative robot!!

Since the robot uses a 'regular' pipette I assume there is no option of liquid sensing.. (unlike expensive robots) does that cause any issues with accuracy? is there a way to overcome this ?

Hi @rgranit:u Thanks for the inquiry! Our robots allow for precise pipetting anywhere inside a well, using our API and user-friendly app. Liquid level can be traced by calculating volume in your Python script with basic geometry formulas. With this method you can be very precise about where you contact the liquid meniscus, without requiring expensive pipette tips! Our team is always available to help answer questions like this, and will even write custom protocols for robot users. For more details on our API specifically, please see http://docs.opentrons.com.
