Laboratory Automation Brings A Wide Range Of Benefits
Jun 09, 2017

Laboratory automation is achieving efficient processing of thousands of samples, Lab Automation the challenge is how to use the "big data", the current development to promote the goal is to achieve data standardization.

The material library consists of potentially active constituents, which can be used for drug development and now contain more than 100,000 active substances. Laboratory robots build these material pools based on a set of pre-defined synthetic rules. With the help of a laboratory automation system, the lab team used large processing capacity screening technology to perform processing at the size of 10,000 samples per day. Lab Automation Ultra-high capacity capacity screening technology in the early 1990s by Evotec and a number of international pharmaceutical manufacturers to develop a successful use of this technology, in the development of new drugs, in the active ingredient research phase can be more than 100 000 samples per day speed Perform processing work. Each microtiter can contain up to 3 456 wells to facilitate efficient processing and archiving of automated systems. Since the 1980s, the Laboratory Information and Management System (LIMS) has been used to integrate the various lab workflows in the IT arena, but with the increase in automation, The complexity of the system requirements has also been greatly improved. This complexity is particularly noticeable when the automated workflow is extended to a PC and a single device control based on a microcontroller. At present, Lab Automation the focus is mainly on process and data management as well as the included laboratory management.

In many of the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and clinical diagnostic laboratories, the current installation of special equipment models are numerous, rich and varied. Lab Automation IT equipment has been developing for a long time and tends to be uncoordinated in the development of chaos. Device drivers and platforms are based on a unified standard, and any manufacturer's products can address them and create opportunities to achieve the integration of these different types of devices. System developers, software service providers, system integrators and pharmaceutical companies and biotech companies have jointly launched SiLA promotion activities for the development of IT solutions for sustainable development in an automated laboratory environment (laboratory automation standardization activities ), Designed to create authoritative standards. The goal of this promotion is to achieve seamless integration of laboratory equipment and IT systems from different manufacturers on the basis of unified communications interfaces, Lab Automation device drivers and laboratory supplies. Members of this nonprofit consortium have appointed highly specialized experts to form a technical working group to conduct joint development of authoritative standards.

Laboratory automation can bring a wide range of benefits, but according to the size of the laboratory and the requirements of the list, it may involve costly transformation work. Intentional introduction of automation and cost-conscious laboratory operators may benefit from the modular system, and the modular system can also be expanded as needed. In order to keep the system as close as possible to the future, Lab Automation the module should conform to current international standards and be equipped with a standardized interface.

Laboratory automation requires a wide range of software and hardware vendors. The challenge is not to collect more data, but rather to make good use of these amazing amounts of information。
