The Science to Laboratory Management — Driving Digitalization and Lab Operations

Life Sciences, Laboratory Technology,
  • Tuesday, August 30, 2022

Improving information flow helps lab managers and process operators identify bottlenecks and amend outdated operational procedures. The right kind of actionable data about the lab’s needs is more readily available in cross-functional settings and helps improve communication with scientists and research staff. Optimizing laboratory management with digital technologies could be the way forward.

Digitizing the lab creates an open ecosystem that optimizes lab workflows. For some major life sciences companies, this technology is also critical to the creation of large-scale “centers of excellence” that can rationalize their footprint and create the framework for significantly more efficient resource utilization.


It is estimated that a total of $1.97 trillion will be spent on digital transformation across all industries around the world in 2022 alone, with substantial investments being made in digital transformation and automation life sciences research. However, effectively utilizing these investments presents an ongoing challenge for many life sciences organizations. Recent industry research highlights some of the challenges.

Moving digitalization forward in laboratory management — Realizing the potential benefits of lab digitalization can be more effectively accomplished through a systematic approach that blends hardware, software and workflow redesign.

Vision: Digital connectivity and optimization — Digital transformation and the intelligent integration of digital information systems into lab workflows can make a major contribution to these critical sustainability goals.

Technology alone cannot deliver the acceleration science needs; digital technology needs to be effectively integrated into how life sciences labs operate. To take full advantage of what these digital technologies offer, existing workflows may need to be “disrupted” and transformed to leverage the digital tools of tomorrow that can make labs more efficient, productive and environmentally sustainable.

Developing more common, open communications and data formatting protocols will play a critical role in enabling real-time data exchange between lab automation tools.

Join the featured speaker as he discusses how improved collaboration between technology and service providers will play an important part in laboratory management efforts.

Message Presenter

Who Should Attend?

  • Lab Management
  • R&D Leaders
  • Facility Managers (scientific)
  • Senior Scientists

What You Will Learn

Attendees will gain insights into:


  • Even with the latest digital research tools and other advanced systems available today, organizations still find themselves hampered by the cost, time and effort it takes to efficiently manage lab operations and move treatments from discovery to delivery faster
  • Advancing digitalization of lab operations cannot ignore the human element. But who can take all of this on?


  • By approaching lab management as a science in the digital age, organizations can shelter R&D, production and other laboratory personnel from the management of digitalization and achieve better results
  • With the science of lab management, you drive efficiency and optimization in the workflows, lab operations and project management. This ensures that the lab of the future keeps evolving
