PLA2019 – SEE WHAT YOU CANNOT MISS


“The Paperless Lab Academy is the greatest European congress where to deepen in laboratory data management related concepts and methodologies”  This is what our attendees’ comment every year.

As such, we keep working on maintaining the momentum and have set for the 7th edition a central theme that will strongly focus on the digital transformation process with a holistic approach covering the complete #eDataLifeCycle.

As such, we´ll discuss topics related to what we like to define the four main phases of the data life cycle: #eConnect, #eManage, #eDecide and #eArchive.

The event is a learning platform for those considering consolidating, integrating and simplifying scientific data management systems and processes.  A platform where experiences and expertise are shared, where discussion generates food for thoughts on how to convert the so valuable scientific data generated in the laboratory to actionable insights for the company. Ultimate goal is to turn your laboratory into a data-driven knowledge center.

The topics that you would expect to be covered at the #PLA2019 are and not limited to:

 Is the Internet of Lab Things (IoLT) confirming its potential to capture the data at its source?

Definitely needed for effective and secured operations at the laboratory. The latest solutions for capturing the data at its source are nowadays available from the top high-level scientific instruments to the more basic balances, without omitting controlling the precision and reproducibility of the pipettes.  All generated records and data along with their correlated information, metadata, are now stored efficiently so that searches, reviews, modifications, and decisions are simple and safe processes fully compliant with the industry regulations.

The transparency afforded by technology provides analysts, supervisors, and managers with the information needed to make appropriate decisions. The laboratory becomes a knowledge center where information is aggregated and visualized comprehensively, analyzed and digested, through dashboard views for quick decision making.

The digitalization of the processes allows adequate collection of an immense amount of data and information from all points along the analytical processes. The information facilitated allows also to identify key areas that can benefit from innovation and improvement or can alert on urgent problems to be solved. The risk is not being ready and benefit of all the generated information.  Not being ready for extracting the essence of what makes your laboratory so valuable within your company.

This is when we go over the proper technology, which is, again, already available today. A solid data strategy is then required to set the foundation where the technology can help by providing complete visibility on the laboratory operations.

How to approach the definition of a data strategy and how to set a common source of data to be used across the enterprise are the topics you should expect to discuss during the #PLA2019.

Are the laboratories ready to jump in and speed for innovation?

Those are the topics should expect to be discussed at the #PLA2019. See the full program at https://www.paperlesslabacademy.com/agenda-2019/

  • About the future of the laboratory within the industry 4.0
  • Demystification of the Cloud-based solutions
  • Business decisions and companies’ processes supported by scientific data management
  • The relevance of a data transfer strategy when replacing solutions
  • The reality of the IoLT (Internet of Lab Things)
  • How to apply the FAIR principles and secure your data
  • Why archiving is the beginning and not the end of a solid #eDataLifeCycle
  • Practical sessions on Audit trails, data integrity, and new Compliance guides

The event is also a unique opportunity to meet with more than 20 International and European solution providers and discover their latest Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) features and their ability to support the lab on data integrity, audit trails and sample workflows. You will have the opportunity to see multiple solutions for Electronic Note Book (ELN), Scientific Data management (SDMS), Chromatography Data Systems (CDS), environmental monitoring (EM), paperless validation solutions, instrumentation integration solutions…
