Laboratory Automation Is Flexible
Sep 01, 2017

Laboratory automation is one of the development trends of laboratory medicine, especially in the process of medical and health system reform in China, based on the establishment of universal medical security system, Lab Automation a large number of medical needs were released, patients increased, the specimen increased, laboratory automation can adapt to this Of the demand, so the past two years, Lab Automation large domestic hospitals have introduced a fully automated assembly line.

Laboratory automation for life science research and its positive impact in clinical applications, and analysis of the advantages of automatic pipetting workstation on the importance of daily laboratory work.

First, the definition of laboratory automation

Laboratory automation system (LAS) refers to the different analytical instruments and analysis before and after the sample system through the automation and information network connection. LAS usually contains a sample before and after processing unit, analysis unit, Lab Automation sample transport system and support the operation of the unit software system and laboratory information system. Lab Automation LAS is customarily divided into total laboratory automation (TLA) and modular automation (MLA) systems.

Second, the characteristics of laboratory automation

The ideal LAS should have the following characteristics:

① open: not limited to only one manufacturer of the instrument connection, Lab Automation should be able to connect with any other manufacturers of the analyzer;

② integrity: a complete "analysis before - analysis - analysis" hardware and software support, Lab Automation information system integrity;

③ flexibility: automatic system can be based on site requirements, a variety of places placed;

④ intelligence: a high degree of intelligence, user-friendly system design, contribute to the successful completion of the experiment;

⑤ independence: the functional units are mutually independent and relatively independent, Lab Automation the unit can be independent operation. But to meet all the above conditions is still quite difficult. As a result, LAS has a broad and narrow laboratory automation.

Classification of laboratory automation

Laboratory automation (TLA) is a variety of analytical instruments and analysis of pre-processing equipment and analytical processing equipment connected to the realization of automated blood collection, labeling, sorting, transportation, sample processing, analysis and storage. Constitute a pipeline operation, Lab Automation to achieve the automation of the inspection process, also known as the generalized laboratory automation system. Since the time taken for manual sample treatment is more than 70% of the total testing process and is the main cause of reporting errors, Lab Automation the primary goal of laboratory automation is to minimize the number of steps that do not have value-added benefits throughout the analysis cycle, including samples Classification, opening, centrifugal, the sample into the analytical instruments and classified storage, that is, to achieve part of the sample pre-processing automation. The second goal of automation is to increase the available time of the value-added benefit step in the analysis cycle as much as possible so that the inspector has more time and effort to improve the quality of the test results. The step of value-added benefits includes the review of the risk results and decides whether to carry out re-examination or additional test items based on specific results. These functions can be automated in sample post-processing systems.
