Scientists often manually analyze culture well plates to speed up sample processing. However, it can be very difficult to simultaneously record data and analyze multiple wells. Therefore, this process is prone to human error. To define the outcome of each well, Javier needs to hold the plate above his head, observe and memorize each location and outcome, tilt his head down to write down his findings, and look up again to repeat the process with the next well.
