Downtime due to absence has a clear link to lab throughput and thus increasing the demands on already high workloads.

One of the most common causes of lost workdays is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), which has seen a 500% increase over the past twenty years – resulting in more lost workdays than any other workplace injury. Highly repetitive manual tasks such as capping and decapping sample tubes could be a potential cause of CTS.
