SCOPE OF REPORT

This report will focus on liquid handling equipment for biological and chemical laboratory use. There will be a variety of different applications included in the scope of this report. This report will not focus on total laboratory automation solutions, as it will not cover the software and integrating hardware needed for these purposes. This report will also not cover the use of consumables, as most of the consumables used are typically used in other laboratory applications.
