The lab automation report (2012-2017) covers the market for modular and total lab automation (TLA). Modular automation is estimated to dominate TLA, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period, due to its affordability by a majority of small and medium-sized labs, and less space requirements. Based on equipment and software, the market includes automated liquid handling, microplate readers, robotics and software & informatics. Automated liquid handling forms a major market segment in terms of market share, whereas microplate readers are poised to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The report also covers the market by applications, including drug discovery, clinical diagnostics, genomics, and proteomics. Biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries form the leading contributors to this market.

The factors driving inclination towards automation include miniaturization of the process leading to reduction in overall costs, higher reproducibility and accuracy, large workforce demand and supply gap, and better safety. Yet, major concerns in this market are the capital intensive processes, lack of technological planning and management, and space requirements. However, the positive aspects very well offset the market restraints to grow at a stable rate. Lab automation is gaining greater acceptance in drug development and discovery for the fact that the cost of error in such activities is very high. Even low error rates can have a profound impact on project costs. Major opportunity for this market lies in automation of microbiology labs.

The global market is geographically segmented into North America, Europe, Asia, and Rest of World, with North America contributing the highest share, closely followed by Europe. This is attributed to an increasing demand for automation in genomics and proteomics research procedures, and growing demand for high throughput screening in the drug discovery process. However, a robust growth rate will be observed in the Asian region with China being the major growth driver during the forecast period. Factors behind this growth include a growing economy, increasing healthcare investments, large population pool, improving public health awareness, and rising demand for standardization and accreditation.

The global lab automation market is highly fragmented and competitive. Key players in this market are Tecan Group Ltd. (Switzerland); PerkinElmer, Inc. (U.S.), Danaher (Beckman Coulter & Molecular Devices) (U.S.), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., (U.S.), Agilent Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), Hamilton Robotics (U.S.), Aurora Biomed Inc.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In his session at Cloud Expo, Robert Cohen, an economist and senior fellow at the Economic Strategy Institute, provideed economic scenarios that describe how the rapid adoption of software-defined everything including cloud services, SDDC and open networking will change GDP, industry growth, productivity and jobs. This session also included a drill down for several industries such as finance, social media, cloud service providers and pharmaceuticals.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery.
