We've heard so much about patenting that GT wanted to see what it was all about.
The illustration (see the link below) shows our breakthrough for pipetting without a lab tech (but remember, we're patenting this so you'll have to pay us royalties if you try to use it).
Here’s how it works: 1) Our gorilla eats tasty bananas, throwing peels on the floor. 2) Drosophila sense the mess and gather. 3) Frogs leap to catch a fruit fly dinner, releasing the cat hiding under the box. 4) Cat zips over to catch mouse, which, in its attempts to escape, runs frantically on its wheel. 5) That supplies power through an electric pump to aerate a fish tank, causing zebrafish to move away from the stream of bubbles. The momentum of the fish shifts aquarium weight on the see-saw. 6) That shift ejects zebrafish, which in turn land on the pipette plunger, dropping exactly the right amount of sample into our microtiter plate.
