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!

Taking off in 2022 with process optimization in the laboratory

The new year is only a few days old and yet it is already apparent that 2022 will once again be a year of digitization. With the omicron mutant, the pandemic is now entering its third year - the digital networking of laboratories worldwide has probably never been as important as it is today. Rapid exchange of results, smooth communication and the perfect interaction of a wide variety of interfaces are the basis for research results that will (hopefully) quickly rid us all of the Corona virus. Higher productivity, increased efficiency and significantly expanded effectiveness at work: the Internet of Lab Things brings with it possibilities that probably no one could have imagined 20 years ago.

But what exactly does it mean for you when end-to-end digital processes are introduced in your lab? When your instrument management runs on a single platform in the future, your lab devices communicate with each other, and you always have your LEAN Lab "in your pocket" even on business trips thanks to mobile devices?
Well, first of all, digitization means getting used to a new way of thinking. Away from insular thinking, away from managing huge mountains of paper - and toward a digitally driven working world. The digital lab of the near future brings with it automated processes that free people from time-consuming routine work. And create space. Space for creative approaches to solutions, for faster research results and an exchange of ideas across all boundaries.

We would like to use the start of 2022 for an exchange with you. Do you see opportunities in the digitization of laboratories - or do you rather fear risks? We look forward to your messages and an exciting, constructive exchange of ideas!

What is the digitalization status of life science laboratories?

The Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA has conducted a highly interesting study to determine the current state of digitization of laboratories operating in the life science sector. The central questions of the study revolved around the challenges and non-value-added activities that laboratory employees are confronted with during their daily work. The aim was to determine whether this could be linked to the current level of automation and digitization in the laboratories.

The digital lab and data security

With digital transformation, more and more data is ending up in the cloud. This is also the case in the digital laboratory of the future. With the move to cloud-based services such as the iLES platform, work processes are becoming faster, access to the stored data easier and research results easier to evaluate. However, the use of digital technology also brings with it completely new problem areas. Data sets from everyday laboratory life are not only of interest to laboratory employees - but also to an army of cybercriminals. That's why we don't want to focus on the iVention modules and the iLES platform today - but on the cyber security factor.

Lab Automation? Our lab has no capacity for that!

The implementation of a digital platform in the daily laboratory routine is expensive, time-consuming and cannot be managed without IT specialists. These are just some of the prejudices you hear about the digitalization of laboratories. But what is actually true about these prejudices? Is it really true that a digital platform - and its management - is more work than it is beneficial? Let's take a closer look at the iLES platform.
