We describe experimentation with robots together with computer vision to improve various artificial chemical life systems. We investigate a case study, where the use of the robot enables timely, and precise verification of the experiment results with fixed parameters. In addition, new possibilities to promote the quality of artificial life experiments, such as positioning droplets at equidistant intervals or in patterns are discussed.
