How many times have you tried pulling a chemical required for an experiment only to find that someone else from your lab has already taken it? Or that the chemical just expired and you now need to wait several days to receive a new supply?

How much did you sweat in your last audit when the auditor asked about the documentation regarding  the usage of chemicals and reagents?
Did you know that most laboratories spend 25% of their available working time on  the management and documentation of consumables, chemicals, reagents, and equipment?
Why do we still accept compliance and safety risks by using paper or Excel-based data capture or data transfer?

In this webinar, we will discover the opportunities to  improve productivity, compliance, and safety in laboratory management through digitalisation!


You will learn concrete reasons why traditional lab management is still wasting time and energy and why existing solutions usually fail. You will learn how you can overcome most challenges by applying novel digital solutions that are perfectly designed along  lab workflows and can be easily implemented


Lab managers and scientists/analysts/technicians are the most impacted by resource- and time-wasting activities, especially in highly regulated areas like GLP and GMP where compliance plays a special role.

Staff responsible for EHS and QA would also benefit from this webinar
