Helping labs to scale nucleic acid testing.
Automata Labs completely automates nucleic acid PCR and LAMP testing protocols.
Get patient diagnoses faster, more accurately, and with greater traceability with robotic laboratory workflow automation
The pressure on diagnostic labs and their staff to meet ever increasing patient testing demand has intensified.
Because of the nature of the job, staff can quickly become fatigued, disillusioned or bored, leading to a high turnover of workers.
Manually carrying out repetitive tasks, like sample preparation or barcode scanning, often on paper, means accuracy and output is limited.
Manual labour carries the added risk of human error, adding to retesting times and thereby affecting patient outcomes.
Cost to scale
The cost of the manual labour required to fulfil lab tasks at means output is limited by working hours and workforce numbers.
Automata Labs enables labs to expedite PCR and LAMP tests by combining tried-and-tested lab equipment with robotic automation technology.
With less reliance on skilled labour to complete repetitive tasks, staff are enabled to do more high-value analysis work.
With diagnostic protocols automated, time saved can be used to analyse results: Getting patients to diagnoses faster than before
With the ability for timestamping, barcode scanning, and more, the ability for labs to centralise sample data collection and management can be realised.
Automating the complete nucleic acid testing workflow allows labs to scale and significantly increase output to meet demand.
Reducing human touch points increases reliability of sample results, eliminating contamination and lowering chances for retesting.
Laboratory workflow automation for Covid-19 nucleic acid testing
Automated LAMP testing
Compatible with automated liquid handlers like OpenTrons, FlowBot FlowOne and Agilent Bravo, Automata Labs' LAMP testing solution combines six individual Modular Pods into one complete, temperature-controlled workflow.
Automated PCR testing
Automata Labs' automated PCR-testing solution combines six individual Modular Pods into one complete workflow. This workflow lays out our recommended approach based on cost and maximising available space.
