Digital Laboratory: what lab 4.0 promises

A broad range of novel approaches to networking laboratory and analysis processes in the supply chain from sample logistics to documentation will be conveyed to the experts at analytica, the upcoming world’s leading trade show for laboratory technology, analysis and biotechnology and also analytica conference. The experience of experts as to how to increase the efficiency of all processes and, thus, the performance of the laboratory, will be explained in theory and practice by the examples of various workflows.

Interfaces between hardware and software

Innovative technical developments will be presented in Munich alongside optimized networking possibilities and remote servicing systems. This will make laboratories in the different industries central places of the value-added chain. The integration of the various interfaces in hardware and software is an essential prerequisite for the communication between the device modules. The latest insights in this field will be presented in a unique setting in the Laboratory 4.0 Action Area.

Robotics and intelligent laboratory devices

Against the backdrop of increasing digitalization, various processes and structures have to be reconsidered in the laboratory of the future. The aim is to ensure various flexible additional functions all the way to monitored test processes by making data continuously available. Intelligent modules already control device systems, automatically switch on laboratory devices and control various processes in the laboratory. For example, laboratory modules automatically monitor spilling of collecting tanks and “communicate” with laboratory devices. Thus, integrated tools intelligently control modern laboratory technology.

Big data and clouds

Automation and digitalization make it easy to generate data. The enormous flood of data must, however, be used and made available purposefully. Quick and safe transmission of huge amounts of data, safe storage concepts for big data and the networks and clouds required for all this present the industry with challenges.

Lab 4.0 – shape the laboratory of the future today

Lab 4.0 revolutionizes the laboratory world from sample logistics to data management and allows novel approaches. In the future, big data, cloud computing, the Internet of things and the mobile internet will be of decisive significance as next generation technologies, when it comes to securing future growth.
