Top Laboratory Informatics Trends in 2020 & Beyond

Life Sciences, Drug Discovery & Development, Laboratory Technology,
  • Tuesday, December 17, 2019

Scientists spend up to 80 percent of their time at the bench with no reliable way to capture and access information in real-time. Most current lab informatics tools are entirely disconnected from the tasks that scientists perform at the point of experimentation. This often results in poor data capture at the bench, leading to inefficient and irreproducible research.

Did you know that over 70 percent of early discovery experiments are not reproducible? Researchers often rely on a mix of electronic lab notebooks, printed protocols, pictures and post-it notes to capture, retrieve and record data. Managing these different data sources, while moving throughout the workplace, can be cognitively taxing for researchers, leading to incomplete or inaccurate documentation.

In this webinar, the speakers will provide insights on how pharma and biotech companies are planning to overcome these problems in 2020 through workflow optimization and equipping labs with smart, integrated technologies to create the “lab of the future.”

Join the roundtable discussion to learn:

  • How researchers are using digital voice assistants combined with AI and machine learning to capture, record and retrieve scientific data in real-time
  • How companies expect the adoption of voice recognition, internet of things, augmented reality and virtual reality to empower scientists, increase interoperability and make research spaces touchless, connected and automated
  • AI’s role in facilitating data-driven decisions and streamlining researchers’ work

What else promises to be game-changers for research teams in 2020? Be sure to use the questions and comments field below to ask your questions when you register for this live webinar.
