Today, Automata has announced the launch of Automata Labs: an accessible compact total workflow automation solution to empower life science labs to innovate and upscale at pace.
Automata Labs is a total workflow automation solution. It transforms labs of all shapes and sizes, providing scientists with accessible, and flexible, end-to-end lab automation.
Until now, total workflow automation or Total Laboratory Automation has often been out of reach for lab managers with ambitions to scale up their lab’s capability and capacity. Equipment and software are frequently too expensive, while solutions are
often inappropriate for labs with small geographic footprints.
Automata Labs makes next generation automation accessible. Automata’s modular pods house a robotic arm, capable of operating lab equipment. Multiple pods can be integrated into larger protocols and automated simultaneously, minimising manual input. Supported by Automata’s management software and managed service support, Automata Labs offers a complete workflow automation solution.
Scientists who have used Automata Labs report that they are able to achieve consistently accurate results faster, and on a larger scale, than before. One healthcare partner, for example, is currently partnering with Automata to meet increased demand for Covid-19 nucleic acid testing.
The launch of Automata Labs reflects Automata’s ongoing commitment to working with partners in the life science industry, in drug discovery, diagnostics and biotech, and helping healthcare providers address systemic operational challenges.
