Automating laboratory processes can bring numerous benefits such as improved efficiency, increased throughput, and reduced errors. However, automation projects in a diagnostic laboratory also present various challenges that must be overcome to achieve success. Complexity of laboratory processes: Diagnostic laboratory processes are often complex, and automation of such processes requires detailed knowledge of the laboratory workflow, instrumentation, and sample management. Proper analysis of laboratory processes and workflows is necessary to ensure that automation is properly implemented. Overall, successful automation projects require careful planning, effective change management, technical expertise, and ongoing monitoring and maintenance to ensure continued success while adhering to measurable goals.
