A cost-effective way for CROs to rapidly acquire high-quality data


Flexible and scalable complete lab automation makes it easy to adapt to changes and run multiple assays at once without compromising on space or increasing staff costs

How LINQ transforms data quality and throughput for CROs

Increases productivity and cost-effectiveness

Reduce staffing costs by up to 30%. Run assays 24/7, every day of the week with no additional workers

10x more workflow data points of higher quality

Data becomes more accurate due to reduction in bias via consistent, reproducible results across multiple runs

A central source of truth through data standardisation

Data from all systems in-house or beyond is connected and standardised for instant sharing

Faster turn-around time for client results

Give clients the information they need faster with increased productivity and data reliability

Reduces manual interactions and resulting errors

Eliminate errors, and restart and downtime, with a 95% reduction in the need for manual inputs

Enhances the reproducibility of experiments and results

Decision-making and efficiency is improved with consistent and reliable results without the cost of manual errors

How one CRO unleashed the power of LINQ

CRO automation problem solved: scale up and stay quality-driven

From 100 to 530 plates per day

Automata partnered with a virology contract research organization (CRO) to fully automate their ELISA process, addressing the increasing demand from the biopharmaceutical community. The CRO wanted to improve throughput without compromising on ability to reprogram methods. 

The challenge involved ensuring data integrity and avoiding contamination risk, as the CRO’s work included virology testing for critical clinical trials.

Automata’s solution was a fully automated ELISA system that resulted in 80-95.25% reduction in manual interaction, a throughput of up to 530 microplates per day, reduced risk of manual errors, and improved data quality with full traceability for all actions. The integrated equipment included microplate hotels, incubators, liquid handlers, washers, readers, sealers, peelers, barcode scanners, and Automata LINQ modules and Scara Robots.

The results

Increase in throughput

from 100-530 plates a day

Increase in data quality

Data points per plate

No increase in STAFF
