Adopting Automation

For decades, robotics have been available, but have been either too costly or difficult to implement. With significant improvements to software and machine-learning, along with more cost-effective robot manufacturing, robotics have become a viable option for players throughout the supply chain, including small-scale operations.

Robotics have never been as adaptable as they are today, and this will increase exponentially in the near future. This flexibility, in conjunction with radical improvements in software, will fuel an explosion in robotics implementation.

Robotic Opportunities

Automation offers a wealth of opportunities in the pharma industry. Recent advances in automation technology have made it more accessible and userfriendly. Upgrading or creating manufacturing lines with more automation increases reliability, safety, compliance, security, and, in most cases, efficiency. These benefits have made automation more than a show piece for highvalue lines, but a major component in modern manufacturing.

Generating Scientific Insights by Deep Collaboration - Bridging the Big Data Divide Between Clinical and Research

BioFortis

Translational research, biomarker discovery, clinical studies and even biobanking have become increasingly data intensive.  However, generating scientific insights from such disparate “big” data sources across multiple domains is a challenge for both researchers and the informaticians that support them. Download our Deep Collaboration Whitepaper and and learn how to bridge the clinical and research divide to better explore your biomarker based trials.
