In times of upheaval, people turn to technology to support their rapidly shifting needs. Covid-19 has made the need for unattended instrument operation even more pressing for laboratories to remain competitive. But the word ‘automation’ can be a somewhat nebulous term and it can be hard to imagine exactly what it refers to, let alone where it fits in your lab’s workflow.
For the uninitiated, ‘automation’ brings to mind clumsy, unreliable robots moving when they feel like working and behaving like an expensive paperweight when they don’t. For others, it brings up understandable fears of job losses.
As far as sample preparation automation is concerned, small is beautiful. In this recorded webinar, Alex Murray discusses the miniaturisation of samples, analyser sensitivity and what it means for the reliable automation of almost all sample preparation.
When successfully introduced, automation actually creates more (if different and more engaging) work for analysts. Join us for this webinar if you’re interested in finding out how.
