Affordable, flexible & fully automated

Transforming cell research with adaptive automation

NestEgg Labs was formed by scientists frustrated by the status quo of manual cell research.

Our Products

We sell devices and software that enable users to do more with the tools and protocols they already enjoy.


Feed-Lid automates media exchange on a 6-well plate enabling researchers to automate their work using familiar tools and program their own protocols through the user-friendly Ovation interface. This approach reduces the learning curve and accelerates the adoption of our system. This reusable consumable serve as an entry point to our product lineup, and it is available now!


Ovation remotely automates media exchange, microscopy, and incubation transforming cell research into a reliable process by automating the most tedious, sensitive, and error-prone phases of the process. Leveraging machine learning, Ovation tracks cell growth, identifies pathogens or anomalies, and even predicts failures in advance, saving valuable time and resources. Ovation will launch Q4 2025


Vitellus is a powerful app developed to streamline and standardize cell-based research. It serves as the core interface between Ovation hardware and any operating system, enabling researchers to automate their work on the cloud. With Vitellus, researchers can combine data from experiments with their handwritten lab notes while connecting to machine learning for analysis & prediction.
