Science Revolution

I came across to epMotion the other day. Apparently it is an automated pipetting machine made by Eppendorf. I guess it was inevitable fate for any industry to have some kind of revolution. Just like Industrial revolution, eventually “Science Revolution” will be here to replace Lab techs like me. We will need to get a completely new set of training to manage all these machines instead of pieptting 1ul samples ourselves.
Should we embrace the revolution? or reject it? I guess we don’t have a choice but rather need to prepare and accept the fact.

So you are concerned about replacement?
Then you may get a little more worried after reading a recent article in Science (Vol. 324. no. 5923, pp. 43 - 44).

I recently posted this same video (epmotion) and others, but with a different focus. I invite you to read it at

Thanks for the comment.
I am not necessarily concerned but rather excited to see what will happen.
