A LabAutopedia Definition

A special case of an integrated system.  Preconfigured, often available commercially off-the-shelf as a standard system for a given type of or class of sample processing.  As compared to custom, one-off integrated systems, workcells tend to be more compact because of more focused and on-going engineering efforts, and may not be as easily reconfigured outside of the pre-defined process focus.  Otherwise, workcells are integrated systems, e.g. employing multiple devices and workstations linked by an automated sample transport system, and coordinated via a workstation controller (often a PC).  Often a liquid handling workstation is a key component of a workcell.
