The Digital Lab

Why you should start now

Paper and pencil are also part of everyday life in modern laboratories. It's possible to record test results, write data down, pass notes on to colleagues - it's quite possible. However, it should be borne in mind that the traditional form of "data collection in paper form" has reached its limits in our digital world. The more digital systems we move into our environment, the greater the sum of the information collected. And the administration effort - and the potential for errors - is growing along with it. Alternatively, imagine a digital environment that does not require the time-consuming installation of software or lengthy training. A digital environment in which you and your team can work together, regardless of location and with any end device. A digital environment that combines modern Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) with Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELN) or Scientific Data Management Software (SDMS). And "by the way" turns your laboratory into a paperless laboratory.

With iLES, we at iVention Lab Automation have created a platform that will support you in transforming your laboratory into the digital age. And in a smart, user-oriented way. There are no expensive add-on modules or paid function upgrades at iLES - we have designed a platform that provides all the functions our users need.

How do you organize your laboratory work? Still classic with paper and pen - or already paperless and digital? We look forward to your experience with "Labor 4.0"!

Ich arbeite seit 1992 an Themen wie Effizienz und Produktivitätssteigerung. Zunächst in den Bereichen Labor und Forschung. Hier machte ich meine Erfahrungen mit analytischen Instrumenten und Automatisierung. Mit dem Wechsel in den Vertrieb kamen Unternehmenslösungen wie Scientific Data Management Systems (SDMS), Laborinformationssysteme (LIMS), Laboratory Execution Systems (LES), Elektronische Laborzeitschriften (ELN) und Dokumentenmanagementsysteme (DMS) hinzu. In den letzten Jahren habe ich mich mit der Digitalisierung von Prozessen und deren Messungen beschäftigt. Seit 2019 leite ich die iVention DACH-Region und unterstütze unsere Kunden beim Einstieg in die digitale Laborwelt.
