Digitization and connectivity continue to drive LabOps excellence

Digitization and connectivity continue to drive LabOps excellence

As part of daily LabOps, laboratory leaders manage many workstreams including asset activities and data generation. These are mammoth tasks that often involve complex processes and procedures. Along with this comes many opportunities for error, which begs the question of where and how improvements can be made. 

Elemental Machines addresses these LabOps challenges head-on by providing multiple ways to improve monitoring in the lab. As a universal LabOps platform, Elemental Machines' tools can digitize and connect nearly any piece of equipment or information in the lab. 

There are multiple types of monitoring that can be performed when lab equipment is digitized and connected in a single platform. 

Using Elemental Machines’ tools, ambient conditions can be monitored in nearly any environment – from incubators and freezers, to open lab spaces and vivariums. Data can also be pulled directly from the laboratory instruments, making the information easily accessible in real-time. Lastly, equipment usage (the on/off status) can be monitored to assess asset utilization and inform lab schedules and workflows. 

Elemental Machines is pleased to share a comprehensive list of validated asset compatibilities for monitoring of equipment usage along with its newest asset integrations for equipment-specific data monitoring that are supported by its IoT-connected devices.
