Astech Projects Offers Automation by Design at ELA 2012

Published: May 21, 2012

Runcorn, UK – 21 May 2012 – Leading systems integrator, Astech Projects, will be exhibiting at the European Laboratory Automation (ELA) conference and exhibition from 30-31 May. Astech’s expert consultants will be on hand at booth 64 to discuss its new four step turnkey approach to automation. This consists of – consultation and proposal, concept design study, proof of concept, and detailed design, manufacture and testing.

With existing patents expiring and regulatory requirements tightening, the pharma industry is under increasing pressure to increase the efficiency of the drug discovery pipeline, bringing innovative new drugs to the market. The design of custom automation is therefore being outsourced to allow the development of truly unique systems that streamline the R&D process. Astech designs, delivers and develops bespoke, integrated, automated solutions, helping customers meet the challenges of existing or new workflows. Providing timely and cost-effective automation, Astech’s approach offers an extensive phased development process, which begins with in-depth client consultations, leading to small scale validation. This ensures that all objectives, both on an individual project and broader business level are met, prior to commencing large-scale manufacture.

Visit Astech Projects at ELA on booth 64 from 30-31 May to find out more and discuss your automation requirements. For more information on Astech Projects, visit, or follow @astechprojects.
