AdobeStock_526680432Process optimization in the laboratory ensures that experiments are performed faster, more efficiently and more cost-effectively. There are many different ways to optimize processes in the laboratory, for example by using automated systems, optimizing workflows or introducing standardization measures. Process optimization can also help improve the quality of experiments by minimizing manual errors. If you are interested in how to optimize lab processes to achieve better results, then you should read on!

Why should processes in a lab be optimized in the first place?

There are several reasons why processes in a laboratory should be optimized:

  • Time savings: by optimizing processes, experiments can be performed faster. This can help to complete projects faster and perform more experiments in the same amount of time.
  • Cost savings: optimizing processes can help to make better use of resources such as chemicals and equipment. Thus, costs for experiments are significantly reduced.
  • Quality improvement: by optimizing processes, manual errors are minimized, thus improving the quality of experiments.
  • Reproducibility: by optimizing processes and introducing standardization measures, experiments can be reproduced more easily. This is important to ensure the validity of experiments.
  • Increasing efficiency: optimizing processes can help the entire laboratory work more efficiently.

    Optimizing processes can help make experiments faster, more efficient, less costly, and improve the quality of results.

I have been working since 1992 on subjects such as efficiency and Productivity increase. Initially in the laboratory and research sectors. Here I made my experiences with analytical instruments and automation. With the change to sales, enterprise solutions such as Scientific Data Management Systems (SDMS), Laboratory Information Systems (LIMS), Laboratory Execution Systems (LES), Electronic Laboratory Journals (ELN) and Document Management Systems (DMS) were added. In the last years I was engaged in the digitization of processes and their measurements. Scince 2019 I'm running the iVention DACH region supporting our customers to move into the digital lab world.
