Momentum 3.2 software for automation control can streamline sample submission and allow the execution of automated microtiter plate-handling processes with good user control and process management. It includes three user-level controls: Administrator, Scientist, and System Operator. The Scientist level allows the laboratory researcher to manage the processes to ensure that procedures are approved for execution. System operators are then only exposed to validated assays that can be routinely submitted via touch-screen control. Momentum 3.2 is suited for the completion of routine automated workflows.
