Do you want Skynet?  Because this is how you get Skynet.

Fascinating. This is an excellent idea!

Instead of having scientists go through thousands of samples, give it to a machine. While the human testers need to don PPE and use other precautions in order to avoid cross contamination or infection, the machine will work constantly with few issues. As for disinfection, there could be a special stall where the robot could be irradiated between sample analysis.

Yep. Not going to need nearly as many grad students now.

This will begin a cycle that should end well.

For The Robots!
