AppsIn today's world, where digitization is becoming increasingly important in all areas of life, laboratories in Europe must also succeed in making the transition to a data-driven way of working. A major challenge, especially and particularly for small laboratories. This is exactly where iLES comes in, a platform that helps labs master the transition to the digital world.

iLES, the iVention Lab Execution System, is an innovative platform that offers a wide range of features for the digital lab of the future. iLES seamlessly integrates laboratory information systems (LIMS), electronic laboratory notebooks (ELN), scientific data management systems (SDMS) and data management systems (DMS) on one user-friendly platform.

The main mission of iLES is to help laboratories optimize their workflows and improve their efficiency and quality. The platform enables laboratories to work seamlessly collaboratively on upcoming projects in a completely paperless manner across multiple locations.

A major benefit of iLES is its ability to build bridges between the so-called "islands of data" that are still far too often created in today's labs. Data islands occur when data is stored in isolation in different systems or departments and is not linked together. This can lead to inefficiencies and impact a lab's ability to make informed decisions. iLES solves this problem by providing a centralized platform where all data can be collected, analyzed and managed.

The use of iLES brings with it numerous new approaches to solving the problem:

  • First, it enables better collaboration between employees by allowing them to access the same data and update it in real time.
  • Second, it improves data integrity by reducing the likelihood of errors that can result from manual data entry.
  • Third, it enables better traceability and compliance as all data and activities within the system can be recorded and easily retrieved.

In addition, iLES is a scalable solution that adapts to a lab's changing needs. Whether you run a small lab with just a few employees or a large lab with multiple sites, iLES can be customized and easily scaled to meet your specific needs at any time.

iLES is a revolutionary platform that can completely change the way labs work today. By providing a centralized platform for managing and analyzing data, iLES can help improve the efficiency and quality of laboratories and lead them on the path to a digital future.
In a world where data is becoming increasingly important, it's essential that labs have the right tools to keep up. iLES is one of those tools - a platform that not only makes lab work easier, but also helps advance science.

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.
