Today’s laboratory environments demand fast-paced, high-throughput processes, driving the transition from traditional manual to automated workflows. A significant part of this transformation lies in adopting automated liquid handling technologies, where Retisoft excels. This blog explores how laboratories can journey from manual to automated workflows, focusing on the role of the automated liquid handler.
Manual versus Automated: The Tipping Point
Handling liquids manually in a laboratory can be time-consuming, subject to human error, and inconsistent due to variable pipetting skills. Additionally, manual handling may limit the laboratory’s capacity to handle large volumes or high-throughput screenings. The answer to these challenges lies in automated liquid handling.
Automated liquid handlers eliminate human error, enhance reproducibility, boost productivity, and ensure safety. With these advantages, the shift from manual to automated liquid handling becomes a pivotal part of laboratories’ journey towards automation.
Understanding Automated Liquid Handlers
Automated liquid handlers are sophisticated equipment that precisely and consistently pipettes liquids, reducing the risk of manual errors. They also enable high-throughput screening, accelerating research and development processes. Moreover, automated liquid handling equipment facilitates consistency and reproducibility, which are crucial in scientific experiments. By automating, laboratories can ensure that every sample receives the same handling, leading to reliable and repeatable results.
