University of Technology Sydney develop robotic system to analyze thousands of algae strains daily

July 18, 2022 |

In Australia, University of Technology Sydney researchers in the Climate Change Cluster (C3) have partnered with PSI – the world-leading manufacturer for biological sciences instruments – to develop and install an automated robotic system that screens thousands of types of algae each day.

Previously, it took scientists around six months of manual, full-time experimental work to identify the traits of one single strain of algae. This new technology enables that same strain of algae to be analyzed in just one week.
