Frequently Asked Questions

Lab automation is one of seven available modules that is part of the productivity hub that makes up Benchling’s LIMS connection platform. With Benchling’s lab automation, scientist can seamlessly integrate and connect their lab instrumentation with the recorded and registered data and results. With a unified platform, it provides a more streamline approach to generating, reporting and analyzing results and more importantly improving productivity and speed to milestones.

Life science and pre-clinical diagnostic R&D organizations are increasing their investments in lab instrumentation to streamline workflows and address the diversity of data being generated at an exponentially increasing pace. Software tools are enabling scientists to build a total lab automation solution to help improve data quality, boost reproducibility, and increase throughput to reach milestones sooner. The key benefit of lab automation is bridging the gap between informatics and instrumentation working together to make scientists more productive. As research deadlines become more compressed, the need to do more work in a shorter amount of time and more efficiently is critical.

Benchling’s lab automation was optimized to effectively integrate with a wide variety of instruments in Benchling software. Lab Automation works with liquid handlers and pipetting units, microplate readers, and centrifugation instruments. As part of Benchling’s unified platform that also includes the Inventory module, it can be used with bar coders and labeling systems to establish an automation system to monitor reagents and consumables as they are being used or consumed by the high-throughput instrumentation.

The Benchling platform and specifically Lab Automation module can be tailored to address the specific research and workflows unique to your lab. We offer comprehensive customer support as an option and will work directly with your scientific team to address your needs and optimize the software for productivity and functionality. Also, it is a highly secure digital solution to store your personal data. We have customers that optimize Lab Automation to integrate with their liquid handling workflows, sample preparation work, cell line development, RNA and nucleic acid studies, and even next-generation sequencing.
