Biotechnology is a fast-growing field with plenty of room for innovation. As it matures, however, it’ll benefit from many of the same tools that enriched industries before it. One of the most powerful of these is automation.
Biotech is early in the process of unlocking the power of automation. Still, early results are promising. Thanks to the scientific and objective nature of the biotechnology life-cycle, it has the potential to gain amazing advantages from end-to-end automated systems.
Let’s look at three big biotech benefits of automation:
Automation Makes Compliance Much Easier
Biotechnology, and life sciences in general, face a heavy regulatory burden. While these rules are important for public safety, they’re also a huge driver of overhead. Compliance costs can grow by millions annually, and the rules aren’t getting any simpler. Automation provides systematic change – the only kind that has the potential to ease compliance and arrest its costs.
Automation Drives Collaboration in the Field
Biotech demands collaboration between scientists and engineers from a wide range of backgrounds. Using automation, they have an unprecedented opportunity to capture valuable operational data from every step in design, development, and production. That allows them to share a common language and platform for improving their underlying science.
Automation Means Speed, Productivity, Profit
As unique and fascinating as biotechnology is, some of the fundamental business drivers are very familiar. Enterprises need to manufacture sophisticated products at a consistently high quality – and when that’s the problem, automation is the solution. Automation delivers on tough production goals, cuts operational costs, and makes it far easier to scale up as a business grows.
