Use Modular Automation for Higher Liquid Handling Throughput



In its heyday, Henry Ford’s assembly line was the height of innovation. 


But it had its limitations. A product could only move down the line as fast as the products ahead of it: if machinery failed down the line, the entire line came to a stop until the error was resolved.


In 2018 Audi responded by developing what it calls ‘Modular Assembly’—an advanced assembly line method that improves throughput by increasing the efficiency of parallel subassembly lines feeding into the final assembly line. 


Now, Opentrons has married Modular Assembly with Liquid Handling Automation to arrive at ‘Modular Automation’—an advanced lab automation method that improves throughput by increasing the efficiency of parallel workflows feeding into the final workflow. 


Watch this 50-minute webinar to learn how Modular Automation can help your lab:

  • Increase throughput
  • Reduce downtime from equipment failure
  • Save on the cost of equipment repair
  • Increase reliability of your automated pipeline
