  • The best investment you can make for your laboratory in terms of automation is scripting. Using scripting, you can take full advantage of the plethora of low-cost automated devices that are becoming available at a mind-blowing pace.
    The best scripting language is AutoIt. Using AutoIt, you can control mouse clicks and keyboard inputs. This way, you can easily synchronize different instruments being controlled by the computer. In fact, you can synchronize instruments being controlled around the world if you use scripting on computers connected to the Internet.
    Investing in learning AutoIt is a wise step for your career as a laboratory professional, or for your laboratory, if you are an autonomous scientist that cannot afford to hire employees.
    Learn EVERYTHING about AutoIt as a tool for laboratory automation from the book "Practical Laboratory Automation made easy with AutoIt" by Matheus C. Carvalho.
