Digital Transformation in R&D:  The Signals Research Ecosystem


Research Scientists daily face the challenge that the science they are doing is complex and often generates a high volume and variety of data.  They need to collaborate both internally and internally and the data they need to make decisions can be scattered over numerous diverse data sources. In this workshop we will present the PerkinElmer Signals Research Platform which is designed from the ground up to take into account these challenges. We will present a collaborative and streamlined workflow utilising our Signal Notebook, Signals Screening and Signals Lead Discovery to showcase how research scientists can facilitate the Make Test Decide workflow beginning with documentation of experimental research of making materials to testing those materials  and then deciding what to make next.
