Automation – Highlights
Automation in the Lab of the Future
Automation, hand-in-hand with digitalization, is one of the founding principles of the Lab of the Future. In this infographic, we explore the potential benefits and challenges of adopting automation solutions in the lab.
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.
Three Reasons Why Automation Can Benefit Your Laboratory
In this article, we explore how automation in the laboratory environment can give the scientist greater control over their instruments to drive up standards and quicken the experimental process.
RoboCap – The Robotic Capsule Designed to Improve Drug Delivery in the Gut
Scientists at MIT have developed a robotic capsule to increase drug absorption by clearing away layers of mucus in the gut and depositing drugs directly on the intestinal surface. This increased the absorption of drugs such as vancomycin and insulin.
Building a More Resilient Biopharma Industry
Technology Networks spoke to Conor McKechnie, to learn more about the Biopharma Resilience Index and the changes required to get new therapeutics to market quicker.
CRISPR Screening: Studying Evolution in a Dish
CRISPR screening enables the rapid and unbiased identification of genes relevant to a specific biological pathway. In this article, we explore how researchers are using this cutting-edge tool to shape our understanding of biology and advance medicine.
