Enabling rapid cell line development with automation.

Use automation to maintain cell culture quality while increasing throughput across your cell culture lines

Rapid cell line development

The challenge

Keeping cell cultures healthy and high quality is time consuming, resource-intensive and requires a significant amount of manual human intervention.

Our automated solution addresses these limitations and allows labs to make more efficient use of their time and resources, by fully utilising instruments to improve throughput, and minimise the risk of human error.

Staffing

Quality of cell cultures

Automation enables repeatable, predictable results for labs of all shapes and sizes. Today, human error is one of the largest hidden costs within labs, resulting in inaccurate data, result bias and lost time.

Quality

Staffing

Staff at cell culture labs need to conduct repetitive manual tasks to enable the healthy growth of cells, and often have to work through evenings and weekends to ensure this.This is a significant strain on staff, leading to low morale and a high turnover for cell culture labs.

Space

Barriers to scale

Because of the linear workflows that cell cultures labs use, cell culture growth is a time-intensive process resulting in significant barriers to scale due to a large manual staffing requirement

The solution

Moving away from manual linear workflows and adding parallelisation to processes can improve lab’s throughput, as well as cell culture quality.

Automata’s automated cell culture solution enables parallelisation of processes and takes care of the repetitive, manual tasks. It is highly flexible and modular, with a small footprint making it suitable for labs of all shapes and sizes.

Walk-away time

Automation allows staff to focus on high-value tasks, as opposed to manual and repetitive motions. This improves staff productivity and morale, resulting in improved retention.

Efficient

Increased throughput

Automata’s solution enables labs to scale their throughput by parallelising workflows and eliminating manual steps. This saves time and resources, enabling drastic throughput improvements by moving away from a linear workflow approach.

traceability

Traceability

Full traceability of samples is guaranteed through Automata’s Hub, which integrates into lab’s workflows and sends the data into their LIMS. Our error handling capabilities safeguard the quality of cell cultures throughout the workflow.
