Practical Laboratory Automation | Made Easy with AutoIt by Matheus C. Carvalho : The test with the robotic arm made clear for me that AutoIt could be used to integrate any type of devices in the laboratory, enabling not only money saving, but also total freedom regarding the choice of equipment. As I came to realize, my colleagues were not aware of such possibilities.Therefore, I decided to share this idea with other professionals, and published two articles in scientific journals about Auto It used in the context of laboratory automation. However, scientific articles are short, not allowing for an in-depth coverage of AutoIt, and thus I decided that a book would be a better way to disseminate the idea among laboratory technicians and scientists.

Book Description:

By closing the gap between general programming books and those on laboratory automation, this timely book makes accessible to every laboratory technician or scientist what has traditionally been restricted to highly specialized professionals. Following the idea of “learning by doing”, the book provides an introduction to scripting using AutoIt, with many workable examples based on real-world scenarios.
A large portion of the book tackles the traditionally hard problem of instrument synchronization, including remote, web-based synchronization. Automated result processing, database operation, and creation of graphical user interfaces are also examined.
Readers of this book can immediately profit from the new knowledge in terms of both increased efficiency and reduced costs in laboratory operation. Above all, laboratory technicians and scientists will learn that they are free to choose whatever equipment they desire when configuring an automated analytical setup, regardless of manufacturers suggested specifications
