  • Addressing productivity and cost management in laboratories
  • Enhancements in product delivery, quality, and accuracy
  • Incorporating human and product safety

Addressing productivity and cost management in laboratories

Laboratories are integrating robots to streamline their daily activities while reducing the operational and overhead costs. The adoption of laboratory robotics also reduces the expenditure incurred through the procurement of samples, consumables, and reagents,” says Bharath Kanniappan, a lead analyst at Technavio for robotics research.

It has been observed that approximately 50%–60% of the operational cost can be saved in clinical and research laboratories through the adoption of robotics. Implementation of robotic technologies is a one-time investment that can help chemical and pharmaceutical businesses in generating a higher profit by minimizing the time required for process completion.

Enhancements in product delivery, quality, and accuracy

The adoption of robots in research and clinical laboratories has clearly enhanced the productivity and overall quality and accuracy of the work conducted in these units. Since robots display higher efficiency and speed when compared to human beings, the average time spent doing manual labor is significantly decreased.

Robots also possess the flexibility to be programmed based on user requirements, providing not only high-quality output but also producing reproducible and reliable results. These advantages are attractive to laboratories, thereby encouraging higher adoption.

Incorporating human and product safety

A number of laboratories deal with processes and chemicals that can cause complications for the health and safety of the technicians working there. Also, to ensure compliance with the regulatory and safety protocols in place, laboratories have initiated businesses to adopt robotic technologies for critical process applications.

The robots deployed in laboratories are capable of assisting businesses to execute day-to-day operations while ensuring the safety of human life and property. Robots are set to become essential supporting entities aiding with the safe and streamlined functioning of labs,” says Bharath.
