Smart Lab Levels

We take you on a journey to level up your lab.
Click and discover what awaits you on each level!

Digital Lab

The foundation is a digitally enabled lab, where the scientists work with up-to-date hardware and experiment data is generated and stored digitally. At this stage, we discuss and introduce relevant tools such as ELNs, Device Management, Barcode Inventory etc.

Smart Lab Level 3: The "Digital Lab"

Connected Lab

The next level is to connect the lab devices and establish sensor systems that control and track what’s going on in the lab. You can then run small automations, improve reproducibility and understand environmental factors influencing your results.

Smart Lab Level 2: The "Connected Lab"

Automated Lab

With the digital backbone and the Connected Lab in place, we can automate even complex repetitive workflows in your experiments. We help you implement anything from small productiviy hacks to co-bots to full process automation.

Smart Lab Level 3: The "Automated Lab"

AI-Ready Lab

With your lab being able to run full experiments automatically while tracking meaningful data every step of the way, machine learning and AI controlled experiments become reality.

Smart Lab Level 4: The "AI-Ready Lab"
