Researchers are increasingly relying on NGS and other genomics techniques to improve human health. These same methods are also used to support other industries such as AgBio and Crop Science. Regardless of the industry, the challenges are similar -- and labs are increasingly looking for ways to streamline sample processing, increase lab productivity, enable collaboration and generate insights from growing amounts of data. Lab automation is helping labs to streamline processing and increase productivity, but also exacerbates the need for good data management solutions.
