What is nICLAS?

With the innovation center for laboratory automation Stuttgart (nICLAS), Fraunhofer IPA has created a new institution that connects manufacturers, users and researchers in order to enable interdisciplinary exchanges, business and new developments as well as to address all challenges related to labs and bio production.


Modern laboratories are highly complex data factories. Automation can help to master the growing complexity in the Life Sciences industry and to create space for innovations. Personalized production and individualized medicine require new efficient solutions through automation and digitalization.

We want to demonstrate how adequate lab automation should be implemented in order to meet the needs of tomorrow.

nICLAS brings together all steps in one place from concept to realization and testing.
