Every major pharma co. published papers regarding automated sample preparation with reasonable level of success.
To advance automation for bioanalysis sample preparation further (e.g. a fully automated bio-analytical platform), most people agree that the industry needs to collaborate and standardize on key components (i.e. software, hardware, labware).
How to share is a problem in itself.
I’m interested in discussing ‘What would we need to share?’
What subject matter needs to be discussed to move automation forward.
(e.g. have everyone agree on a common label format, plate, cap type, tube type, XML file format).
