Automation – Highlights
How Automation Will Take Scientific Innovation to New Heights
Rich Ellson explores how sophisticated lab instruments will continue to change how scientists spend their time and help to transform life science research.
Why Automation Will be the Cornerstone of the Post-COVID Biology Lab
The 21st century has seen a revolution in how we approach research. With the advent of new technologies like automation and machine/deep learning, biology is becoming a less inferential and more data-driven discipline. With scientific research delayed worldwide due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is it time to re-examine the future role of automation in biological research?
Automation and Digital Manufacturing for Cell and Gene Therapies ‒ Why Paper Is the Enemy of Scale
While the regulatory approval of cell and gene therapies offers hope to cancer patients requiring treatment, less than 2% of the patients who could benefit from these therapies have gotten access. In this article, we explore key challenges faced by developers bringing these treatments to market.
Transforming Drug Discovery Using AI and Automation
The COVID-19 pandemic has unveiled a pressing issue – the need to develop effective drugs rapidly. But developing a new drug is easier said than done. Technologies such as microfluidics, robotics and the use of artificial intelligence, combined with automated data analysis, can expedite the drug development and approval process, helping make therapies available to patients more quickly.
Applying AI Across All Stages of Drug Development
To learn more about the application of AI across all stages of development, from drug design to clinical trials, Technology Networks spoke with Dr. Yuan Wang, head of research analytics at UCB.
AI Can Identify Similar Materials in Images
This machine-learning method could assist with robotic scene understanding, image editing, or online recommendation systems.
Six-Legged Robot Electrode Can Be Gently Deployed Across the Brain’s Surface
A new robotic brain electrode system developed by researchers at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) can be deployed onto the brain’s surface after being delivered through a tiny hole in the skull.
Building the Bioeconomy Requires Addressing Biosecurity Globally
In this opinion piece, Sophie Peresson explores the need for greater visibility globally on biosecurity issues and strategic leadership from multiple stakeholders to drive the conversation around standards and best practices.
Form Bio Selected by Google Cloud To Help Organizations Adopt New AI-Powered Life Sciences Solutions
Form Bio announced that it has been selected to help organizations adopt Google Cloud's Multiomics Suite, accelerating the research of life science companies and academic institutions.
Beckman Coulter Launches the Only Immunoassay Analyzer With No Daily Maintenance
