Thermo Scientific iAutomate online tool for automation platform configuration

Friday, 24 January, 2014 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific


Thermo Fisher Scientific has released its online automation system configuration tool, the Thermo Scientific iAutomate. As a self-serve, free-to-use tool, the product is designed to reduce the time associated with configuring and trialling an automation set-up.

Users can quickly and easily build their own system to meet application or process requirements, or modify an existing system around the Orbitor or Orbitor BenchTrak plate movers. This allows for lab- or office-based access for automation optimisation and efficient online estimating. As a result, users within the life science, pharmaceutical, biotech and academic sectors can gain confidence in the design of their specific automated workflow before it is installed.

Currently housing an inventory of more than 100 different instruments, the software enables the complete configuration of the Orbitor BenchTrak with standard product lines and service parts. When setting up a project, users have complete access to the product catalogue through the software, which can be filtered, for example, by instrument type. Once chosen, all products will appear on the main screen and can be assembled via drag-and-drop functionality, where they will automatically snap into alignment around the Orbitor BenchTrak. This can be visualised in 2D or 3D, where a scale model can be inspected in detail from any angle.

By selecting the Estimate tab at the top of the page, users will be presented with all elements of their system, along with associated price and a summary. The entire workflow can also be shared with colleagues at any stage of the process. In order to complete the purchase of the system, users simply click the Contact Me button, whereby they will be contacted by personnel from Thermo Fisher Scientific.
