Process Considerations for Clinical Laboratory Automation

Posted by Craig Rubenstein on Mar 12, 2015 5:16:45 AM

As diagnostic lab managers consider implementation of process automation to achieve improved results, there are a number of common factors that can complicate or prevent a successful transition from manual handling/processing. Lab staff often performs “corrective” tasks without formal recognition, resulting in many processing steps being left out of the documented workflow. Engineering an automated process to satisfy the documented workflow may fail to account for these “hidden” process steps. Among the first tasks to be performed in a process improvement/automation program is a detailed workflow study with a specific focus on “casual” process steps.

Reframing the "Collaborative Robots" Discussion

There’s been a lot of excitement recently about collaborative robots. In September, there was a Collaborative Robotics Workshop in Silicon Valley, and an Advanced Manufacturing Workshop about collaborative robots was held last month at RoboBusiness in Boston. Great events to be sure - events that are building awareness about the accessibility of robots for companies of all sizes. Robots that can increase productivity, make companies more competitive and ultimately create jobs.

Machine Vision and Applications: 3D Perception for Robotic Guidance

Posted by Jennifer Katchmar on Aug 13, 2014 9:54:32 AM

While machine vision is a very broad category, over the next few weeks we will post blogs relating to the segment that helps locate parts and guide robots (robotic guidance). Putting a finer point on it, in this post I'm writing about 3D perception for robotic applications.
