Laboratory diagnostics – Growth beyond consolidation


With few consolidation opportunities remaining, the future for labs lies in organic growth and digitalisation. What will be the impact of automation and smart laboratories? Will self-testing take off massively? Is there a threat from blood testing start-ups that are like Theranos, but work? This session features three laboratory diagnostic CEOs who share their approaches to growth.

Speakers include:

Joe Stringer, Executive Chairman, Automata

Case Study: The future of automation in labs, Automata, and The Royal Marsden
With the demand for genomic testing on the back of screening programs exploding, how are lab groups managing to keep up? Lab automation group, Automata has enabled providers such as a The Royal Marsden NHS Trust to increase genomic test throughput by 3 to 5x whilst simultaneously halving the space required. In this case study Joe explains how this was possible, the future of innovation in laboratories, the impact on the scientific workforce and productivity, and why logistics is now the only significant barrier to scaling innovation.
