Introducing Laboratory Automation in a Regulated Environment: From Proof-of-Principle to High-End Solutions, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, Oct. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Clinical chemistry and centralized laboratories introduced automation decades ago to drive efficiency and lower costs. In contrast, contract laboratories have been reluctant to introduce robotics, mostly due to the unique aspects of the work. CRO laboratories must manage complex, evolving needs such as method adjustment and small batch runs, which make programming automation more challenging.

Until recently, the required financial investment made lab automation more futuristic than realistic. Now, however, increasing throughput, traceability and reproducibility demands create a case for automation in GxP-regulated laboratories.

This webinar shares the advantages and challenges experienced firsthand while transforming Celerion's laboratories into a highly automated facility. The content includes the unique approach required by a CRO vs biopharma based labs in regards to user requirements and system validation. Highlights will include the application of the "paperless" laboratory via ELN and laboratory information management systems (LIMS). The intersection of the ELN, LIMS and the laboratory equipment automation is presented via data flow illustrations that span method testing and release, the methodology of error reporting and scheduling. Equipment automation highlights include the integration of robotic systems for advanced applications, such as fully automated solid-phase extraction and a robot dedicated to the preparation of calibrators and quality control samples.

Join Dr. Michael Gröschl, Associate Director, Bioanalytical Laboratory, Celerion Switzerland and Rebeca Schibli, Team Leader, Automation and ELN, Celerion Switzerland in a live webinar on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 at 11am EST (4pm GMT/UK).
