Increase your lab's productivity with digital inventory management

Digital inventory management  can significantly improve the productivity of a laboratory - by ensuring that all materials and equipment are reliably available at all times to perform upcoming tests and experiments. One thing is certain: if the lab is constantly lacking materials and equipment, this can lead to delays and interruptions in the workflow, thus affecting the lab's productivity.

Making documentation simpler and more complete

When it comes to documentation requirements in the laboratory, the focus is mostly on documenting and archiving measurement results. In the second row of attention, however, are still the records of instrument parameters. As part of quality control in a modern laboratory, it is not only necessary to document when and how regularly a laboratory instrument has been serviced - but also how well the instrument performs in daily use.

In addition, documentation of upstream and downstream processes is increasingly required, analogous to the requirements in production plants. Whether storage of raw materials and products or incubation processes: regular checks with complete records are required. With digital end-to-end processes, laboratories can respond to the increased requirements in the area of documentation obligations - without taking up valuable staff time resources unnecessarily.

In addition to a high degree of automation in digital documentation, iVention also enables the integration of IoT devices. This allows captured data to be collected, stored and processed directly without any detours. Central data acquisition with secure, location-independent access to data makes documentation simpler, more complete, faster and more reliable.

What's the situation like in your lab? Are documentation tasks still eating up your teams' capacities - or are you already on your way to the digital lab of the future? Feel free to write us about your experiences, we look forward to a constructive dialog!

Responding to a changing professional environment with the digital lab

Our professional world is changing. This is also and especially true in the numerous laboratories of Germany, Europe and the world. Studies show that so-called mid-level qualifications in particular are increasingly disappearing. While the existing core workforce of medical assistants, laboratory technicians or biological-technical assistants in many cases still learned the old, "analog" tools of the trade - including the performance of standard tasks - Generation Z employees are now moving up the ranks. The new generation is highly qualified, digitalized all around and highly trained in the areas of development, research and experiment design. Interest in non-value-added routine tasks, on the other hand: Not at all. With the digital laboratory of the future, it is possible to respond optimally to the changing professional environment.

Maximum precision is required in laboratories. Modern data loggers and sensors already allow extremely reliable recording of all kinds of measured values. To ensure that there is no loss of accuracy during data transmission and subsequent analysis, more and more laboratories are relying on new interfaces that seamlessly network data loggers, LIMS and peripheral devices.

On the Way to the Data Factory of the Future

The more digitized our laboratories become, the more extensively IT structures network devices, locations and employees, the faster results are obtained, shared and evaluated. One thing is certain: the digital laboratory will become a data factory. Enormous amounts of data have to be processed and managed day after day. The flood of data is becoming a challenge - not only for daily operations, but also for management.

One of the greatest current challenges is to automate the previous, manual processes within a laboratory - and then to integrate the processes into existing laboratory information management systems. With the iVention iLES platform, we are addressing exactly this point. iVention iLES is a highly integrable, web-based platform that transforms laboratory data into valuable, digital information. iLES is scalable and fully customizable to the individual needs of each laboratory. With intelligent features and the ability to be fully networked, iLES not only increases flexibility, but also cost-effectiveness. "By the way", iLES is a powerful tool when it comes to processing and managing large amounts of data - Big Data.

No fear of data floods - this is the approach we at iVention take with iLES. We accompany our customers from A - Z, i.e. from the first consultation to the setup to the daily use. Because we know exactly which hurdles await users when switching from the "classic" to the digital laboratory of the future. Why not give us a try right now? We look forward to hearing from you. We would be happy to work with you to develop the optimal solution for your laboratory's transition to digitalization!
