How robotics enable process automation in the modern laboratory

Watch this on-demand webinar to learn how collaborative robots are improving accuracy and efficiency in today’s laboratories.

About this webinar

Whether it is labour shortages, quality issues or capacity increases, there is no shortage of reasons to automate laboratory testing and sample processing. To tackle these challenges, collaborative robots are being implemented daily in today’s modern laboratories. Also known as “cobots”, these lightweight robots are flexible, easy to programme and above all, safe to work in shared space with your human employees, all without safety fencing.

In this on-demand webinar, you will learn about basic cobot technology, how cobots can enable small to large instrument clusters and automate assays, incubation or cold storage, vastly improving capacity and quality. Robot ROI will also be discussed, as well as emerging technologies, such as mobile robots, in today’s labs.

Benefits of attending

  • Discover how collaborative robots can aid laboratory automation and combat research challenges
  • Learn about the application of collaborative robot technology to various lab processes.
