Lab Automation Market – Global Industry Analysis, Forecast 2015 – 2023


Laboratory automation is the usage of technology and equipment in laboratories to raise experimental data quality, reduce lab process cycleand in diagnostics. Laboratory automation encompassesprocess, devices, technology and software thatsupport automated workflow process in the laboratories and thus decrease manual steps and faults. It allowstough and faster throughput and analysis of a large number of samples. Laboratory automation applied in different areassuch as drug discovery and clinical testing. Laboratory robotics is the most widely known application of laboratory automation technology. Generally, the field of automation comprises many different devices, software processes, automated laboratory instruments and methodologies used to enable, accelerate and increase the proficiency and effectiveness of laboratory scientific research in laboratories. A laboratory automation system can be either an integrated system or standalone.
