Automated and digitized high throughput efficacy screening for (new) (bio)-chemicals is a game changer on both output data-quality and throuhgput. The resulting data is valuable for both the up- and downstream processes in development pipelines.
With automated protocols the screening experiments are executed more uniform. This results in better quality data that can be exploited to facilitate better and faster decision making in compare to more traditional approaches.
Automation of the screening pipeline creates the ability to boost the throughput and collect more and better datapoints 24/7/365.
