The unprecedented outbreak of coronavirus has caused a surge in demand for clinical laboratories equipment such as laboratory automation systems for diagnosis and testing. The pandemic has put enormous pressure on clinical laboratories due to increased testing volumes and turnaround time within the lab. For instance, in December 2020, the total testing volumes were 245% of baseline. Routine testing volumes have also reached over 100% in the US, well above pre-pandemic level. Further, as of 2021, the US has implemented over 363 million coronavirus tests. The automation of diagnostic laboratories helped in improving reproducibility, increased efficiency of laboratory staff, increased throughput and reduced turnaround time.  However, many labs involved in general testing and research were forced to shut down during the pandemic lockdown. For example, Synthace, a scientific software company in the UK, was forced to close their own lab. However, they continued to aid research labs via cloud-based platform, which helped in automating biological experiments.
