The laboratory automation industry is a multi-billion market which consists of multitudinous companies involved in the manufacturing of systems and components as well as software to bolster the increasing demand for laboratory automation systems.
Laboratory automation systems include integrated and workflow instruments, robotic systems, components, and software to improve the overall process efficiency (e.g., pre-analytical and post-analytical process, among others). Currently, laboratory automation solutions are indispensable tools for the healthcare companies and laboratories that are facing increasing level of demand for high productivity and cost reduction. In the early 1980s, commercial laboratory automation systems and robotics were developed by a group of scientists in Japan and later on was introduced in several labs in the Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific (APAC) regions, to improve quality as well as efficiency of laboratory process. Moreover, implementation of laboratory automation reduces turn-around time and risk of human-error by replacing labour intensive manual operations. Furthermore, the advent of automation technologies in R&D procedures and diagnostic procedures has enabled the companies to meet the regulatory compliance as well as manage their profit margins and remain competitive in the market.
