Automation is influencing health care, especially in clinical diagnostic and drug company laboratories where systems are improving work flow and adding speed and efficiency. Over the years, many laboratories in North America, Europe and elsewhere have installed fully functional automation systems, as well as individual automated systems.

Lab Automation Markets, 4th Edition, analyzes the current and potential world markets for medical laboratory automation systems and equipment – both for the clinical diagnostics lab and the drug discovery and research laboratory. This report generally offers forecasts future growth to 2017. Market segments covered include:
Sample transport systems
Specimen and liquid handling systems
Storage and retrieval systems
Work stations
Plate readers
Robotics
Dissolution testing
Laboratory information management systems

This report gives insight into issues facing the industry and also reviews the nature and the direction of research and trends in automation equipment, including:
Miniaturization
