Mission Statement

We are the third generation of the Speedy Cappers and our goal is create a system which expedites lab experiments involving eppendorf tubes. Eppendorf tubes can create organizational issues and slow down experiments by getting ensnared in each other. To eliminate clutter, and increase efficiency, we have reinvented the eppendorf cap, and invented an uncapping and capping device. We also wish to address vortexing of the tubes, to expedite another step of the lab process, but we did not address this problem this year.
