About Cerillo

Cerillo is working to develop laboratory instruments designed for their users, not just their functions. We've seen it when there just isn't enough space for everything. We've been there when the software doesn't work, or when the bells and whistles get in the way of the backbone. We know what it's like to have to plan an experiment around uptime and late nights.

At Cerillo, we get it. And we're working on a better way.
