Automata are at ASHG’s Annual Meeting this November, see you there
The world’s best and brightest in human genetics and genomics research convene once a year for ASHG’s Annual Meeting, and you are invited!
Join us and more than 8,000 scientists from around the globe at ASHG 2023 to take part in a 5-day program comprising the year’s most significant new advances in the field.
We’ll be there showcasing our LINQ lab automation platform, and we’re ready to talk about all things ‘omics.
Automating your workflows from end-to-end is the future of labs, discover the potential today.
The impact of genomics automation
We worked with one genomics lab to implement open, integrated automation into their quality control (QC) process.
This system, designed for a customer to enable scaling to 200 samples a day from 200 samples a week. The QC workflow consisted of a flowbot ONE liquid handler, a plate sealer, a plate peeler, an Agilent Microplate Centrifuge and a PHERAstar FSX plate reader from BMG LABTECH.
We calculated 1388 manual touchpoints for 200 samples, and through our platform of 4 smart benches, connected through 2 robotic arms and a magnetic transport layer, these touch points were brought down to 7.
The time needed for manual setup for 200 samples was reduced from 6 hours 10 minutes to just 15 minutes.
Intrigued? Discuss this case and your own ambitions with the team at ASHG 2023.
