The OneLab software setting allows users to design and implement a laboratory experiment from their own tablet or PC while preparing a new research manuscript. It also allows users to achieve much more.
For instance, it allows users to design an error-free serial dilution or to calculate a dilution factor. All the laboratory experiment steps can be performed manually, semi-automatically, or fully automatically, based on whether the user has a OneLab-compatible connected device or not.
Every step of the experiment is recorded by OneLab and an automatic report is produced, which completely supports both troubleshooting and auditing requirements.
Intuitive Graphical Design
The laboratory protocol in OneLab can be defined via an intuitive graphical drag-and-drop design interface. For instance, to carry out a liquid handling operation, the necessary samples and consumables can be incorporated on the virtual bench, and then the pipette can be dragged from the source to the endpoint in the same manner as one would do on a real bench.
With OneLab, users can add shaking, heating, or centrifugation steps and more from any PC or tablet they may be using.
Perform Complex Actions Easily
In situations where the workflow is very complex, the chances of an error are greater, making it necessary to repeat the experiment. This would prove to be hard if the lab is working with, for instance, rare tumor biopsies.
Therefore, operations such as serial dilution, temperature control, heating, shaking, centrifugation, and concentration normalization can be defined in OneLab, removing the possibility of error-prone calculations and erroneous recipe description.
It can be extremely challenging to ensure repeatability of an experiment in a ring trial, a collaborator’s lab, or across a network of regulated labs. However, the OneLab procedures can be securely shared with fellow lab members or even co-workers in other labs, across the globe.
Protocols formulated in OneLab guarantee that each step of the experiment can be appropriately performed, minimizing the probability of error or faulty interpretations, and avoiding the wastage of funding and valuable research time.
Manual Execution Guidance
When a protocol is set in OneLab, users can implement it in numerous ways, based on how their laboratory is furnished. In case users do not have any OneLab-compatible devices, the software will guide them — step by step — through the manual implementation of a protocol workflow.
Connected Electronic Pipettes Execution
Manual pipetting is the most tedious and tiresome task in the lab, but the shift to liquid handling automation can be equally tough. Pipette+ is the simplest solution for improved results: while an operator performs an experiment, it defines the parameters and settings of the electronic pipettes via software, eliminating tiresome and error-prone pipette operations.
Users just need to click one button, and Pipette+ will automatically fix the right pipette with the appropriate liquid handling settings, performing tasks such as volume changes, mix, or tip ejection.
Liquid Handling Automation
The Andrew+ pipetting robot allows biologists to transition from difficult, manual processes to easily programmable robotic workflows without requiring any lab automation expertise. By using basic electronic pipettes, users will be completely relieved from the bench activity. The Andrew+ pipetting robot also works inside hoods.
