How is Mobile Technology Driving the Lab of the Future?

  • Wednesday, May 13, 2020

Researchers in today’s labs often find it challenging to capture data while running experiments. The fact that researchers need to move locations to record or transfer handwritten data can be, at the very least, inefficient and at worst, a way to introduce substantial error. This can ultimately lead to experimental failure.

LabTwin is hosting a roundtable-style webinar, where R&D IT leaders will discuss how mobile technology can overcome these pressing problems. Mobile apps can capture data from anywhere in the lab and automatically upload these data into laboratory informatics systems.

Mobile technology also allows scientists to access data and information, hands-free while working at the bench. The technology has the potential to enhance connectivity between data, devices, and people. In this webinar, you’ll see how the inevitable rise of mobile technology in the laboratory is starting to create the smart, integrated lab of the future and maximize R&D efficiency.
