Richard Ellson
Chief Technology Officer

Richard Ellson

Mr. Ellson is a founder of Labcyte, formerly Picoliter Inc., where he serves as chief technology officer.

Before founding Labcyte in 2000, Mr. Ellson was area manager for novel printing technologies at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). Prior to joining PARC, he held a variety of management and technical roles at the Eastman Kodak Company in the fields of color printing, image data compression, fluid handling, materials transport and net-shape manufacturing applications. His contributions to internal manufacturing processes were acknowledged by a Kodak Doctoral Award in 1988. Mr. Ellson was nominated for the 1994 Lemelson-MIT Prize and is the inventor on more than 60 U.S. and international patents. He received the 2006 PolyPops Foundation Award from the Society for Biomolecular Sciences for his role in developing acoustic dispensing technology, the basis for the Labcyte Echo® liquid handlers.

Mr. Ellson holds a B.S. in Fluid and Thermal Science and a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University. Through the Kodak Doctoral Awards Program, he took a two-year paid leave to study mathematics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was honored to be selected as National EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2013 Life Sciences Finalist and Northern California EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2013 Life Sciences Winner together with Mark Fischer-Colbrie, Labcyte president and CEO.
