Robot Arm Helps Lighten Load in COVID-19 Testing Lab

When people do COVID lab tests, there has to be something that the sample is in, right? Right, and those samples are in vials, which have caps. Those caps take forever to screw and unscrew, so it is quite tiring to do that. That is why automation is key in this situation. Now, there are robot arms to screw and unscrew vial caps. You know what they say, "Work smart, not hard!"

Robot arms used for the repetitive movements overtaxing our lab workers is a brilliant solution. I wonder if there are other departments that could also use a helping robot hand.
