A scripting approach to automation
from Lab Manager
It is common knowledge that automation technology has advanced extraordinarily fast, with entire industry segments being completely automated decades ago. Some laboratories make full use of automation, which enables them to achieve extreme productivity. However, many laboratories still have not adopted automation, mostly due to the high cost of standard automated laboratory instruments. The situation is aggravated by the lack of compatibility between instruments made by different manufacturers, which reduces opportunities for price reduction fueled by competition.
