Flexibility In Lab Automation
Jul 28, 2017

Laboratory automation is one of the trends in the development of testing medicine, especially in the process of China's medical and health system reform, based on the establishment of universal health care system, a large number of medical needs are released, patients increased, specimens increased, Lab Automation laboratory automation can adapt to such demand, so in the past two years the domestic large-scale hospitals have introduced a fully automated pipeline.

Laboratory automation refers to the use of different analytical instruments and analysis before and after the sample system through automation and information network connection. Las usually includes a sample pretreatment unit, an analysis unit, a sample transport system, and a software and laboratory information systems that support the operation of each unit.

Characteristics of laboratory automation

The ideal las should have the following characteristics: ① openness: is not limited to the connection with a manufacturer's instrument, Lab Automation should be able to connect with any other manufacturer's analyzer; ② integrity: Complete "analysis before-analysis-after analysis" hardware and software support, information system integrity; ③ Flexibility: Automatic system can be based on the site requirements, a variety of placement; ④ Intelligence: Highly intelligent, humanized system design, to help the experiment successfully completed ⑤ Independence: The functional units are both cooperative and relatively independent, and each unit can operate independently. Lab Automation But it is quite difficult to meet all these conditions. Therefore, LAS has a broad and narrow sense of laboratory automation.

Laboratory automation is achieving efficient processing of tens of thousands of samples, the challenge being how to leverage "big data" and the current development-driven goal of standardizing data.

The material library consists of potentially active constituents of molecules that can be used for drug development and currently contain more than 100,000 of active substances. Lab Automation The lab robot builds these material pools based on a set of predefined rules. With the help of the laboratory automation system, the lab team uses the large processing capacity screening technique to perform the processing work in the scale of 10 000 samples per day.

Laboratory automation can bring many benefits, but depending on the size of the laboratory and the list of requirements, it may involve costly renovation work. Lab operators who intend to gradually introduce automation and have higher cost consciousness may benefit from the modularity system, and the modular system can be expanded as needed. In order for the system to be as compatible as possible in the future, Lab Automation modules should conform to current international standards and be equipped with standardized interfaces.

Laboratory automation requires the integration of a wide range of software and hardware vendors. The challenge is not to gather more data, but to make good use of the sheer volume of information. The Achema 2015 exhibition will give users, suppliers, and service providers the opportunity to discuss these issues.
