Special Focus on Artificial Intelligence and Automation


Automated microbiology laboratories have been the workhorse of national COVID-19 testing strategies. The constant fluorescence generated from their high-throughput RT-PCR systems has earned them the honourary title of 'Lighthouse Laboratories' in the United Kingdom. 

Automation has enabled mass testing and a degree of traceability that would not have been possible before. This past year has shown microbiology testing laboratories the benefits these new sophisticated tools can provide, not only in faster turnaround times but also in quality improvement. Is now the time your lab embraced Industry/Quality 4.0?

In this special focus on Artificial Intelligence and Automation, you will learn about how COPAN's automation solutions were put to the test, the results from here can help develop your business case with impressive productivity rates and cost-savings. Plus, the APAS Independence from Clever Culture Systems, this clever instrument can read, and sort 200 plates an hour. Use the 'Automation Justification Tool' to see if this is right for your lab.

Meet the MICA from DIAMIDEX; an automated microcolony counter and analyzer that uses machine learning to perform rapid detection, identification AND enumeration for Legionella, Alicyclobacillus and more!

Be aware of the advantages from automating bacterial endotoxin testing with Lonza’s PyroTec™ PRO Robotic Solution integrated with WinKQCL™ Endotoxin Detection Software. 

IUL S.A can automate your lab, whether its low, medium or high-throughout with their portfolio of automated instruments suitable for many sectors. 

The Growth Direct system from Rapid Micro Biosystems can digitize your workflow, reduce waste and help you stay afloat with the next Pharma 4.0 wave.
