What are the keys of the success of a project of automation?

11 April 2014

The increase of budget cuts, the increase of the number of tests and the need of a bigger precision urge a lot of laboratories to turn to the automation. To realize successfully such a project, some key principles are to follow: the first one is the flexibility and the capacity of adaptation of the machine with regard to the volume of pipeting. Thus It must be able to adapt itself in of bigger or smaller volumes than those specified, because for many laboratories, it is very difficult to foresee the future needs. The second is the management of the whole platform by an integrated computer system which will decrease the human intervention and will allow an enormous saving of time for your technicians. And finally the third is the durability which will allow to lowe the volume of waste produced by your laboratory. As a matter of fact, the platform has to allow decreasing the quantity of consumables and reagents used during the realized processes.
