To enhance our capacity and output, 1st BASE has engaged in several high throughput and robotics technology over the years. These systems allow for enhanced precision and process controls.

  • Semi-Automated System
  • High Throughput Dispensing & Labelling

Building up our capabilities in automation

We actively work with partners to further enhance our capabilities in automation. In 2020, we worked with Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology (ARTC) to develop a robotics arm for the capping of 10ml vials. The SCARA robot’s purpose was to replace the labour-intensive process of capping and to improve the output and minimise contaminations.


The Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre (ARTC) is a contemporary platform built upon strong public-private partnerships. The ARTC is led by the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), in partnership with the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore).

ARTC has a membership consortium with over 80 members, ranging from global multinational corporations (MNCs) to small and medium enterprises (SMEs). ARTC focuses on advanced manufacturing and remanufacturing and serves to accelerate the transfer of innovation from applied research to industrial applications.
