Automated experimentation encompasses all aspects of the automation of clusters of high throughput experiments in the fields of biomedicine and chemistry. Automation provides opportunities to conduct traditional experiments more efficiently and provides an alternative to the traditional experimental method in situations in which experimental variables are too numerous or complex to control. The most widely used application of laboratory automation technology is robotics. However, automated experimentation includes a wide range of laboratory instruments, devices such as autosamplers, software algorithms, and methodologies used to expedite and increase the efficiency of scientific research in laboratories.
