How to automate cancer NGS panels

Automate and track plate scheduling, loading, and transfer, while freeing up your team’s time

The major benefit of our walkaway workflows developed by Automata is the ability to prepare samples and generate data rapidly, accelerating the pace of discoveries at the Crick.

Genomics provides a wealth of opportunities to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancers. However, the next generation of cancer genomics needs to go beyond what benchtop automation can achieve.

Scientists need to spend less time on manual tasks and more time developing and analysing innovative experiments. The volume and quality of data available to them also need to be improved.

By automating end-to-end workflows, speed, throughput, reliability and replaceability in even the smallest cancer panel testing labs can be adapted and scaled as much or as little as is needed without major disruptions.

Automata’s LINQ automation solution robotically and digitally connects instruments in any assay, meaning scientists no longer need to prepare, load, track, move or check samples.

  • Eliminate bottlenecks
  • Track and transfer large amounts of data automatically between workflows and LIMS
  • Remove repetitive and laborious tasks, freeing up time that can be spent on higher-value assignments
  • Reduce manual interactions to reduce errors and contamination risks
  • Improve the traceability, reliability and repeatability of experiments and results
  • Increase throughput with no additional headcount or space required
  • Integrate equipment from any vendor, using any chemistry
  • Experience minimal disruption with immediate scalability and real productivity improvements
