Laboratory automation systems are built around automated laboratory instruments, science lab equipment, and software systems which provide huge benefits such as; increased productivity, reduced lead time, improved workflow coverage and precise data analysis. Laboratory automation is essentially the use of technology to measure or substitute manual operation of equipment and processes. The laboratory automation and robotics are assembled in customized ways that is specialized for specific laboratories or researchers. According to some industry experts the two aspects preferred by end users are higher throughput, this way they can screen more samples or automate the high precision part of their manual work. Therefore, lab automation becomes crucial in laboratories by handling high volumes of sample at a quicker rate.
