Automation Scheduling Software Offers New Model Building and Motion Planning Functions
Press release date: January 20, 2014
SAN DIEGO, Calif. –SLAS 2014 – Lab Managers attending the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) conference and exposition are getting their first look at Thermo Scientific Momentum™ 3.3 automation scheduling software, which offers new features to facilitate set-up and streamline workflows.
Thermo Fisher is showcasing the software within booth #517 at SLAS2014, being held January 18-22 at the San Diego Convention Center.
Designed to save valuable time, this latest iteration of Momentum software incorporates graphical system layout and an instrument integration suite within the runtime environment. By configuring their system directly in Momentum 3.3, users can accommodate quick system and instrument changes. Furthermore, the communication settings for all instruments on the system can be tested at the click of a button for rapid integration.
Other enhancements engineered to simplify automation include the integration of a container library, designed to provide users with a pre-configured database of commonly used container types. This can allow precise container handling without the need to populate complex parameters. The intuitive software also supports flexible workflow logic, allowing users to define a set of plates to process based on lists of barcodes. This feature was added to enable plate and consumable inventory use in multiple processes, across batches. The set-up process has also been streamlined, with fewer steps than previous versions. This is designed to shorten sample submission times.
Momentum 3.3 is designed to be especially useful for modeling complex scenarios on large automated systems. The system can control more than 30 robots in one system. For more information on the Thermo Scientific Momentum 3.3, please visit booth 517 at SLAS2014, or www.thermoscientific.com/automate.
