Embriette Hyde

Fully automated, scalable to thousands of tests per day, and reagent agnostic, the test workflow was developed, validated, and rolled out by the U.K. National Health Service to test 1,000 patient samples per day in only 9 weeks. Here's how they did it - and why the driving principles behind biofoundries and the advanced capabilities of Riffyn Nexus and other "lab of the future" systems were critical to their success.
