Removing traditional barriers
So what is the purpose of scaling in the first place? When labs are given the opportunity to cooperate with traditional barriers removed, results that might have taken months to procure can be achieved in weeks. Effectively, the resources of multiple lab sites can be consolidated into a single working “unit” that may then utilize all available resources to pursue desired results. As aforementioned, in such systems, both efficiencies and inefficiencies are multiplied, and so measures against inefficiency are of utmost importance in the scaling process. The synergistic benefits are indisputable, and naturally, as collective research capabilities improve, so too does the potential of integration.
