Making the shift from low-mix, high-throughput to high-mix, low-throughput

In high-throughput screening assays, researchers run large numbers of samples through the same experimental process. The more samples scientists run, the greater their chances of identifying hits corresponding to a phenotypic response of interest. Historically, this was the niche for automation in the laboratory setting. Scientists used robots to increase the number of samples they […]
