Application: Systems and methods of efficiently performing biological assays (Patent ID: US20240105291A1)

The patent filed by Becton Dickinson and Co. describes an automated laboratory system designed for processing biological samples in a batch type manner. The system receives assay instructions for processing biological samples across various devices, including pre-analytical instruments and analysis systems. An orchestration core application within the system determines the order of performance for the assays ordered for the samples, optimizing the process for efficiency and accuracy.

The method outlined in the patent involves receiving sample identifiers and assay instructions for multiple biological samples, determining the assays to be performed on electronic instruments based on these instructions, and establishing an order of performance to maximize system efficiency. The system can configure instruments based on this order, assess resource availability, and verify sample conditions before proceeding with the assays. Additionally, the method allows for the incorporation of new assay instructions during the process, adjusting the order of performance accordingly to maintain optimal system performance. The patent emphasizes maximizing performance metrics such as time duration, energy usage, and accuracy of results throughout the automated biological sample processing.
