The modern microbiology laboratory is starting to look very different from the laboratory of even 10 years ago. The work will be similar, yet technology will have advanced. Automation, in particular, is taking center stage.
Why automate? Automating the lab brings many advantages, including a reduction in errors and greater data insights. But what does this look like in practice, what do you need to consider, and what are the best practices? In this ebook, microbiology expert and industry veteran Tim Sandle, Ph.D., shares insights on a number of topics, including the key characteristics of the automated microbiology lab of the future, plate counting technologies, robotic solutions for endotoxin testing, cGMP requirements for automated facility monitoring systems, and using automation for antimicrobial screening. Another expert, Anke Hossfeld, shares key considerations for microbial quality control workflows.
By the end of this ebook, you’ll be asking yourself (and your team), “Why aren’t we automating — and how soon can we implement this?”
