On the first view automation might seem a subject only for car or food production. But automation technologies offer a wide range of tools to ease and improve the work in biotechnical companies dealing with solutions for medical applications. Automation can essentially reduce time for processes e.g. for screening, make processes reproducible and stable and delivers acurate documentations. Moreover it is the core-technology to make biotechnical products available for everybody. In the near future automation might b a key to better, more reliable results or faster tracks from basic research to market.
Over the past fourteen years, the department for production and process automation at Fraunhofer IPA specialized in the development of solutions for automation of biotechnological processes. This paper will give an overview of traditional and new technologies in the field of automation technology using the example of a tissue factory and the potentials for research in medical biotechnology. It shows concepts for fast and precise handling methods, measurement and information technology as well as the current limitations of automation technology today.
