Life Science Equipment: The Role of Various Technologies

   May 11, 2024

In recent years, the process of drug discovery, analysis, and modeling of compounds has advanced technologically and garnered attention for the development and implementation of instruments, automation systems, and documentation required for life sciences applications. In addition, increasing drug development in pharmaceutical industries has led to the development of more sophisticated instruments such as chromatography for the analysis of amino acids, microscopy for visualization of proteins, DNA sequencers for sequencing, mass spectrometers for molecular identification, structure analysis, and quantitative analysis of components. Also, the development of lab automation instruments has helped to overcome various issues related to life sciences research and provided the industry with increased productivity, reduced labor cost, reduced possibility of error, and reduced operator risk from handling biohazard samples manually.

Laboratory Automation and Robotics is Expected to Gain Traction in the Market

Sample preparation is the most critical part of any laboratory experiment. Robotic laboratory automation systems can now be used for preparing samples and handling tasks such as pipetting, centrifugation, and mixing of substances. In fields like proteomics and genomics, where vast numbers of samples need processing, robots ensure that no sample is left unprocessed and that results are reproducible every time.

Laboratory automation helps in increasing the efficiency and throughput of various laboratory processes. It can handle repetitive tasks, such as sample preparation, pipetting, and data analysis, much faster and with higher precision than manual methods. This efficiency allows researchers to focus on more complex and creative aspects of their work. Besides pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, laboratory automation is expected to become an integral part of academic research, clinical diagnostics, forensics, environmental testing, and food & beverage testing in the coming years.

Bioinformatics Solutions and Services in the Life Sciences Industry

Pharmaceutical companies use bioinformatics throughout the drug discovery and development process. In the development of a new drug, identifying the drug target is a crucial step, which can be performed by analyzing gene sequences, protein-protein interactions, and metabolic pathways using bioinformatic tools. Drug targets and leads are also validated using bioinformatics tools by analyzing gene data and comparing gene expression data from untreated models and models treated with the identified lead. Moreover, bioinformatics is used for the analysis of data generated from pre-clinical and clinical trials as the amount of data generated is huge, and the integration of this generated biological data is necessary to interpret the results.

Bioinformatics has a large number of applications in biotechnology, including automatic genome sequencing, prediction of gene function, phylogeny, gene identification, prediction of protein structure vaccine designing, understanding gene and genome complexity, and understanding protein structure, functionality, and folding. Biotechnology companies use bioinformatics for genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, forensic sciences, and several other applications.
