IT in Lab Automation: Bright prospects in the lab
Time and cost pressure, a heterogeneous set of hardware, rapidly expanding data volumes and a diversity of data formats are typical of the IT operating environment in automated lab workflows.

There is a need for scalable systems, integrative platforms and standardized interfaces.
