The Connected Laboratory

The lab of the future will be connected. But do the advantages outweigh the risks of connectivity? Connectivity presents advantages like seeing instrument status anywhere, anytime and also comparing usage and performance data from multiple sites.

In this talk, we will see how Tecan is building the lab of the future and discuss our strategies to manage the challenges and risks involved.
