Omron is a trusted partner for medical device manufacturing, clinical and in vitro diagnostic instruments, laboratory automation solutions and pharmaceutical processors and packagers.

The life sciences industry is challenged with achieving greater efficiencies, lower life-cycle costs, maintaining product quality and driving compliance with real-time actionable insights. Addressing these challenges today and in the future is possible only with 100% data integrity and extremely reliable components that are small enough to fit into instruments. From reading labels on specimen tubes or directly marked surgical instruments to automated presence/absence detection of microtiter plates – the life sciences industry can depend on Omron for the highest levels of performance and flexibility.

Complete, automated pipetting solution improves COVID-19 sample analysis

Speed and accuracy are critical in the evaluation of COVID-19 samples. Seeing an opportunity to improve both, GriPS Automation GmbH and D&T Engineering GmbH worked with Omron to automate the pipetting part of the process. Thanks to a smart, end-to-end solution incorporating a Cobra 450 robot, a MicroHAWK V330-F compact barcode reader, and other Omron technologies, the companies cut the processing time from an hour to just ten minutes per plate. Check out this video to see how it works!

Cobot assistants in medical device manufacturing? You bet!

The advent of Industry 5.0 — yes, Industry 4.0 is now giving way to the next generation — is making collaborative robotics increasingly attractive to medical device manufacturing companies. Find out why in this article written by Life Sciences Industry Sales Manager Rob Sepa for Manufacturing Automation! (Also... stay tuned for more on this topic in an upcoming Manufacturing Automation podcast episode!)

Flexibility and quality in the life sciences arena

Saddled with the baggage of legacy systems, many companies in the life sciences arena are facing pressure to boost time-to-market and adapt to evolving requirements. Flexibility is a key strategy for staying ahead of the competition, and yet flexibility also raises a manufacturing system’s complexity. This complexity, in turn, makes it more difficult to maintain quality.

Meet deadlines and track devices across the supply chain

Traceability has always been an essential component of the life sciences, but the upcoming FDA UDI deadlines has brought it to the forefront of industry conversations around medical device manufacturing. Omron’s solutions can help manufacturers stay ahead of the game and ensure compliance with the latest requirements.

Robust traceability systems can also help prevent counterfeiting and keep supply chain issues to a minimum.
