Rich Cote

Inventor, Co-Founder, Avidien

Rich is the founder and President of Avidien Technologies, a Boston native and graduate of Northeastern University’s College of Engineering. While at NU, he designed his first handheld pipettor as the focus of his Senior Capstone Project. Rich has since developed numerous innovative liquid handling instruments and consumables used in Life Science labs everywhere. He is inventor on two dozen issued patents and has received industry awards for several of his creative designs, including the prestigious SLAS New Product Award for the Avidien microPro 300.

Richard is hands-on at Avidien and takes advantage of every opportunity to visit with customers and listen to feedback on Avidien’s products. His aim is to understand how Avidien’s instruments are helping in the lab, and how they could be better. “Avidien’s development team truly strives to create solutions that live up to the “Science Simplified” product design principle.”

Rich lives with his family west of Boston in a town known for its craggy apple orchards and long, cold winters. When he is not thinking about the difference between pipetting accuracy and precision, Rich most enjoys time spent with his family.
