How it works

Explore how our system enabled a clinical genomics laboratory to add 50K screenings annually, covering its cost through a 70% per-plate cost reduction

  • Post-PCR library prep
  • Library QC
  • Library pooling

This customer already had two large liquid handlers and a plate reader with no integration. Regular manual movement between instruments was conducted by scientists, and the lab was unable to expand due to space and staffing.

Automata robotically and digitally connected their workflows, enabling full end-to-end automation.

LINQ benches optimised space through configuration around corners and pillars, and optimising the use of vertical space. By maximising instrument capacity, this lab was able to benefit from a threefold increase in throughput and a 70% reduction in cost per plate.

With LINQs modularity, flexibility was retained, and the lab is now ready to change workflows, sample types, and instrumentation as they need.
