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. Actual devices such as wirelessly-connected instruments, printers and mobile phones will be used to illustrate how IoLT can work in the real world.

Session learnings

The session will discuss and provide practical example of using mobile devices to capture data from Lab instruments and some of the challenges.
