In biology, there’s not been the same push for an integrated digital platform to design, manage, automate and analyze the ever more complex process of life science. In fact, biology is well-known for its reliance on repetitive manual tasks which require scientists to be physically pipetting or cell-culturing in the fume hood; for its lack of reproducible results when experiments are conducted and recorded in such a non-standardised manner; and for its "brute force" trial-and-error approach to drug discovery.

A San Francisco startup called 3Scan Inc. raised $14 million in venture funding to automate tissue analysis for scientists involved in drug discovery with its proprietary robotic microscope and computer vision systems.
