Integra Launches Voice-Activated Pipettes
Integra Biosciences has released voice-activated pipettes. Initially available for VOYAGER pipettes and D-ONE single channel pipetting modules on the ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot, this voice assistant technology uses artificial intelligence to streamline routine processes and increase laboratory productivity.
The new voice assistant can also tell users the time and local weather and remind them of upcoming meetings and taskss.
The software uses voice recognition technology to recognize individuals, and can even be taught to use the correct names. It responds to instructions and can be told which programs to run without having to press a single button. This innovation will make automated pipetting procedures almost contactless, requiring minimal physical input and supervision from the user. The voice assistant also keeps tabs on stock levels, and can put in orders directly from the Integra e-shop.
