Automation unlocks the human genome

The future of diagnoses for in-vitro, cancer, rare diseases and more lies in genomic sequencing. We're here to enable you and your lab to get there faster.

The challenge

As genomic sequencing drives increasing innovation in the life sciences, running tests at scale remains a key issue to address within genomic sequencing labs.

The need to run multiple preparation protocols concurrently has hampered automation efforts.

Staff challenges

Monotonous processes mean staff can quickly become fatigued, disillusioned or bored, leading to a high turnover of workers.

repetitive work graphic

Repetitive work

Manually carrying out repetitive tasks, like sample preparation or barcode scanning, means output is limited by working hours and workforce numbers.

Human error

Even with partial automation, manual labour in between steps carries the added risk of human error, reducing reproducibility and thereby limiting scaling opportunities.

labour-cost-graphic

Cost to scale

The cost of the manual labour and partial automation required to fulfill current lab tasks at current output levels, even before scaling, can leave little left over to fund expansion.

The solution

Automata Labs completely automates library preparation steps for next generation sequencing. By fully integrating lab equipment with robotic automation,  Automata Labs can enable your NGS lab to run multiple protocols in parallel to achieve results at scale.

Staff enablement

With less reliance on skilled labour to complete repetitive tasks, staff are enabled to do more high-value analysis work.

Two parallel blocks

Run in parallel

By running library preparation protocols in parallel, NGS labs are able to run multiple diagnostic sequences at scale.

Minimise mistakes

Reducing human touch points increases reliability of sample results, eliminating contamination and lowering chances for retesting.

Auditing

With the ability for timestamping, barcode scanning, and more, the ability for labs to centralise sample data collection and management can be realised.
