When it comes to automation many think it increases productivity in the lab by simply increasing their sample throughput. But besides this obvious direct influence, the true power of automation for your lab goes way beyond a simple increase in numbers per run.
Using the Genomics Workflow as an example, this presentation will show you how laboratory automation can drastically reduce your documentation effort, optimize your reagent usage, increase your reproducibility thus streamlining your entire process, without sacrificing control or flexibility. Consequently, this directly translates in cost reduction. Moreover, automation offers relieve from the most repetitive and tedious task resulting in increased job satisfaction and employer retention. Differently sized automation solutions, allow implementing these benefits in virtually every lab by covering a multitude of methods - ranging from simple PCR setup to complex NGS library preparation. Ultimately, a change from manual work to automation will not only positively impact the productivity of your laboratory but most certainly also improve the quality of your results.
