Information technology has transformed the way laboratories operate through ever increasing degrees of automation. We have reached a point, where technology enables us to implement digital solutions that make paper reports completely superfluous for operating a laboratory while being fully compliant with ALCOA+ principles.
Optimize Your Lab Performance by Building the Digital Twin of Your Lab
Are you curious to discover the digital twin of your lab performance? What it looks like? You have probably seen a lot of theoretical models and abstract articles about it. In this workshop, we will make it tangible and build it up together with you.
Automated lab scheduling enables your team to move away from firefighting and allows it to work more efficiently and optimally.
Scientific organizations need to optimize operations by improving efficiency while maximizing quality and adhering to regulations, while driving innovation. Across product development and quality control domains, they are increasingly turning to cloud-enabled solutions to increase deployment flexibility, lower total cost of ownership, and maintain data security.
Inquiro from Dexstr: How the combination of Search and AI eases the digitalization process of life science companie
The amount of data available internally and externally is increasing at an unprecedented rate. Structured data (about 20% of all data) is historically well managed with solutions such as LIMS, ELN, SAR (Structure-Activity-Relationship) database, and many others. But how to effectively manage the remaining 80% of unstructured data (report, document, literature, patent, ...) and access and extract valuable information for the decision-making process [in life science companies]?
Who’s not familiar with being lost in samples and processes? Clear labeling is recommended to make sample identification as easy as possible. Though all labs strive for this standard, you often find vessels in your freezer with illegible labels or without any labelling at all. One of the main reasons is that reliably cataloging samples is usually a painstaking and time-consuming task.
Automation without the Robot
Manual pipetting is a fundamental lab skill. Even in labs where automation is present, pipettes are still critical for certain tasks — often ones that are either too routine or too dynamic to automate. See how Gilson’s TRACKMAN® Connected pipetting platform addresses this gap, providing the reliability, traceability, and reproducibility expected of automation — all in a simple, fast platform that fits in a backpack.
Discover an innovative platform able to:
Collect instrument measurement details, enriching them with all essential metadata: Date&Time, attributability, measurement context, sample ID…
Connect all your laboratory instruments to a unique repository, solving data integrity issues.
Drive the measurements through an approval workflow and review with Electronic Signature.
Reduce human errors, improving data reliability.
Increase efficiency, gaining time for quality.
Create a safe data flow between the lab and the business.
Generate reports based on data acquired, according to your needs.
Be smart, use Ioi wherever you are through Tablet, Smartphone, PC
Laboratories are going smart, and the current pandemic accelerated that process. But what does smart really mean? For sure connectivity is important, but how to distinguish true connectivity from fake connectivity? And how to not only transform digitally on paper but also truly transform your lab and last but not least your people in the lab. To help you build a truly connected lab we created the ABC of smart labs: a checklist of what you should Avoid, Buy and Consider.
More and more devices are including connectivity technology, allowing them to be part of a persistent network. This includes laboratory instruments such as balances. These instruments can become a seamless part of a laboratory’s Internet of Things (IoT) environment, allowing quick interfacing and simple usage. During this session, we will discuss the practical ways of creating an Internet of Lab Things (IoLT) environment, and the technical and regulatory challenges to be expected.
Unstructured scientific data is one of the biggest drains on productivity in the pharmaceutical industry today, at an estimated impact of €10 billion per year. In this talk we will explore the hidden costs that data silos and proprietary file formats have—from manual data-cleansing to compliance to enterprise-wide digital transformation.
Research Scientists daily face the challenge that the science they are doing is complex and often generates a high volume and variety of data. In addition, they are spending too much time preparing this data and learning the tools to explore it vs the time they can spend on ideation and innovation. In this workshop we will present the PerkinElmer Signals Research Platform which is designed from the ground up to consider these challenges.
Scientific organizations are continuing the discussion around digital transformation, but the narrative is shifting from strategy to execution. Organizations are looking at how they can leverage scientific developments, technological advancements, and digital solutions to create an enhanced laboratory and increase productivity. Join our talk as we discuss the focus of Thermo Fisher Scientific’s digital solutions in driving industry evolution and helping our customer’s to prepare for the next set of digital transformation goals.
