Research organizations facing new workforce availability, health and wellness, and cost pressures are taking a fresh look at automation to deliver the efficiency, flexibility, and safety that today’s science programs are demanding. This session surveys a range of automation solutions for laboratory animal housing and washing implemented by facilities teams from around the world, and where leading organizations are now heading. Session leaders deliver costs planning metrics, facility design strategies, and MEP infrastructure requirements for performing industry-specific repetitive tasks in a fast and reliable way, with a key benefit being more productive use of personnel. They relate sustainability targets to selection of current and future equipment, examine custom solutions for enhanced flexibility, and implications for IT infrastructure planning.
