SDi Lab Automation 2023
實驗室自動化和資訊學是分析儀器市場的一個重要子集。 實驗室自動化包括選擇可減少重複實驗室程序所需的體力勞動並實現更高通量的研究和開發的技術。 自動化技術使高通量分析和提高生產力成為可能。 自動化技術的工作速度比人類技術人員快許多倍，並以高度可重複的方式提高品質。 同樣，軟體工具加速了分析，並實現了快速、準確的資料傳輸、分析和儲存。 實驗室規模的研究越來越部分或模組化自動化。 這些自動化方法包括給定實驗室過程中的單步自動化或專為小型實驗室設計的替代硬體模型。 因此，這些技術有助於提高各種實驗室環境中的工作效率、準確性和節奏。
實驗室自動化包含許多可以透過技術實現的協定、流程和實務。 透過使用軟體、特定於協議的消耗品、設備、機器人等，可以簡化通常手動執行的任務。 然而，現代技術採用演算法和硬體來實現創新。 用於實驗室自動化的技術包括液體處理、機器人技術、自動化工作站、資訊學、LIMS 和 SaaS 軟體。 也研究了樣品管理、自動進樣器和其他自動化操作的市場需求。
繼 2022 年疫情後強勁復甦之後，2023 年實驗室自動化需求將放緩。 此外，當前的宏觀經濟環境，包括核心通膨、勞動成本、能源成本和銷售商品成本的變化，帶來了額外的不確定性。
Laboratory automation and informatics represent an important subset of the market for analytical instrumentation. Lab automation consists of a selection of technologies that reduce the manual labor that is required in repetitive laboratory procedures, or enable higher throughput R&D. High throughput analysis and increased productivity have been made possible by automated techniques, which can perform tasks at many times the speed of human technicians, and in a very reproducible manner which is improving quality. Likewise, software tools have accelerated analysis and enable rapid and accurate data transfer, analysis, and storage. Increasingly, laboratory-scale research involves partial or modular automation. These automation methods consist of automation of a single step in a given laboratory process or alternative hardware models that are designed to fit smaller laboratories. Consequently, these technologies serve to increase the efficiency, accuracy, and pace of work executed in various lab settings.
Lab automation encompasses an array of protocols, processes, and practices that can be performed with the use of technology. Usually, tasks that were performed manually are streamlined by using software, protocol specific consumables, instrumentation, and robotics. Most lab automation tasks are not truly walkaway; however, the latest technologies are employing algorithms along with hardware to enable innovation. The technologies used in lab automation include liquid handling, robotics, automated workstations, informatics, LIMS, and SaaS software. The market demand for sample management, autosamplers, and other automated manipulation are also explored.
Following a strong, post-pandemic recovery in 2022, demand for lab automation has slowed in 2023. Furthermore, the current macro-economic environment, including fluctuations in core inflation as well as costs of labor, energy, and goods sold have resulted in an additional layer of uncertainty. The effects of these developments are also outlined within “The SDi Lab Automation Market Report ”, which incorporates a summary of recent market developments and dynamics that are shaping our view of the market, including recent business activities.
