Automation in the Laboratory

The laboratory is the optimal environment for automation. Consisting of a complex array of equipment, from beakers and bunsen burners to incubators and centrifuges, it is an ecosystem that relies on standardisation, replicability and accuracy, features that make it well-suited to automation. Its purpose is to connect a researcher to their equipment, so they can access and control experiments at any time and from any location. With devices and machines able to operate with little human interference, automation can mean that repetitive laboratory tasks that used to be in the domain of the researcher, can be transferred over to machines that excel at carrying out a high-volume of repetitive tasks.

It comes in a number of forms: there is the Identification automation system, collaborative bots (Co-Bots), Multi-Function Workstation, Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), the Laboratory Execution System (LES), among others. Each system comes with its own advantages, and some suit a portion of laboratories better than others. Introducing automation into research and development has been shown to have a profound impact on the laboratory environment by increasing throughput and productivity whilst also maximising both machine and researcher potential.

Advantages of Automation

Reduce Human Error
Save Time and Effort
Unify Lab Devices
Maximise All Data

It is important to start thinking about implementing automation into the laboratory, as it can simplify data acquisition and allow for devices to be controlled remotely, giving you greater flexibility in the laboratory.

With this system, aspects of conducting experiments are simplified and a high volume of tasks can be executed with precision and accuracy, reducing human error, which has often led to entire experiments having to be repeated.

It has also had a significant impact on both the analytical and non-analytical elements of research operations. Implementation is expected to have an overwhelmingly positive impact on research yield, whilst also taking us one step closer to a connected laboratory environment.


Our Approach to Automation

A Connected Ecosystem

Laboperator is a laboratory execution system that offers an agile approach to automation. It enables you to automate existing devices and equipment in your laboratory, connecting them to a centralised platform. By doing so, individual tasks can be coordinated more efficiently and data documentation can be fully automated.

Automation brings many opportunities to the laboratory, but can be expensive and involve replacing existing fully functioning equipment. Our solution, however, builds on your existing laboratory features, making it more productive, agile and smart.

Laboperator can also be used alongside other software such as the Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) or Laboratory Information Management System, giving you options on where to transfer collected data.

Unlimited Workflows

Automation aims to connect the laboratory environment, streamlining workflows and alleviating the burden on scientists by giving them more control over their laboratory. With Laboperator you can access your devices from anywhere, offering a further layer of flexibility.

Laboperator is more than just a simple lab automation tool because it combines step-by-step instructions containing manual and automated steps. In this way, you can use Laboperator throughout your experiment, from inception to its conclusion.

You can use Laboperator with any number of devices and get them to execute a high volume of tasks with sequential steps. With additional connectivity between devices, your laboratory will become a smarter, more efficient eco-system.

Data on the Go

  • Being a web-based application, Laboperator is accessible via every device allowing you to control all instruments and collect data from anywhere.
  • Instead of collecting unrelated data points, Laboperator provides a comprehensive view of each value in relation to the experimental context.
  • Map your data to specific steps in each run, to pin down variations while still keeping the bigger picture in mind.




Define routine work sequences

  • From simple processes to complex workflows: collect individual data points and define routine work sequences with several steps.
  • Individual measurements let you collect data whenever you want, including after the completion of your experiment.
  • Workflows guide you through the experiment and collect data from various steps including multiple instruments.

Collaborate within your team

  • Laboperator allows you to define custom access rights.
  • Distribute protocols and workflows according to compliance regulations amongst authorized personnel.
  • Share settings can be re-defined at any point of time and therefore easily expedite the onboarding of new team members to your processes.
