Analysis and Consultancy
If you are considering new automation, or optimising sample storage and preparation processes using your existing hardware, our consultancy services can help. Using our specialist experience, and knowledge of available automation, we help you to:
Map the material and data flows for your sample management processes.
Define sample throughput requirements.
Decide on storage strategies, bearing in mind the service levels your customers demand and the preparation processes that must be performed before a sample is ready for use.
Consider sample re-stocking strategies.
Optimize the use of your current automation, and specify performance and integration interface details for any new robotics.
Identify common data that you use when placing an order for samples, and any links to external analysis or structure systems that would make the ordering process more user-friendly.
Consider future upgrade paths for various scenarios.
This up-front analysis results in a well-considered requirements specification for your system, which is a valuable resource when defining requirements for hardware and software vendors, and when communicating your vision to colleagues.
