Large Molecule Research: Higher Targeting Efficiencies Still Leave Room for Automation

The rise of biopharmaceuticals has evolved research paradigms and continues to displace use of traditional small molecule therapies in the market. Biologics are forecast to account for more than half of the Top 100 selling drugs by 2022, up from roughly one-third in 2012. Driving these therapies to market has required significant investment in upfront […]

Modularity Future-Proofs Your System

MODULAR DESIGN ENSURES YOUR ROBOTIC SYSTEM CAN ADAPT WITH YOUR SCIENCE The use of industrial robots to automate high volume tasks goes back to the 1970s, when the German robot maker Kuka pioneered the first true industrial robot (FAMULUS) with six axes of motion.  Since then, robots have slowly but surely been displacing routine mechanical […]

Personalized Medicine Depends on Automation

The use of robotics and automation more generally is associated with increasing productivity and efficiency, often with the displacement of human labor with machine-based work. While productivity gains are a clear benefit of robotics, they can overshadow another equally or at times more important result – accuracy and repeatability. We are all familiar with the […]
