Kann man Automatisierungstechnik in 10 Zeilen beschreiben? Eigentlich nicht. Trotzdem haben Christine Prussky und Prof. Kerstin Thurow dies versucht und sich in einem Interview darüber ausgetauscht, dass Automatisierungstechnik weit mehr als nur Informatik ist, dass Roboter heute eine große Rolle spielen und ob die zunehmende Automatisierung und Roboterisierung unsere Arbeitsplätze vernichtet.
(SLAS/CELISCA) SLAS Technology is the flagship journal (IF=3,047) covering the fields of laboratory automation and screening. Screening is a special field in automated process measurement to be applied in high throughput explorations of various fields from biotech, medicial diagnostics, pharmacology to environment.
Professor Heidi Fleischer from the University Rostock (Germany) was now honored with the prestigious "2021 SLAS Technology Reviewer Award".
